New daily parking program to launch in July

Parking fees will resume effective July 1, 2020. As the campus proceeds through Phase 3: Recovery of the Restore Illinois plan and as more employees return to on-site work, Parking Services will now offer a discounted daily parking program for those who occasionally need to park on campus.

Payroll deduction for parking fees will resume. Anyone continuing to telework full-time or wishing to instead pay for daily parking should suspend their current payroll deduction. Instructions about how to do this are listed in the Value Card FAQ section on the Parking Services website.

Starting July 1, employees who currently participate in the monthly parking program will be able to pay for parking on a per-use basis instead of having to retain monthly parking assignments. By using value cards, they will pay $7 each time they access a designated parking facility. The student parking rate will be $3.50. These rates represent a significant discount from the maximum daily rate of $15.

Faculty and Staff can participate in one of two ways:

  • Use your i-card as your value card. Value can be added monthly via payroll deductions in the following amounts:
    • $28 for 4 days of parking
    • $56 for 8 days of parking
    • $77 for 11 days of parking
  • Obtain a barcode value card from any ticket entry station and bring it to a UIC Parking office for the initial setup. Money can be added to it at a Parking office or at any Pay on Foot Station located in campus parking garages:
