As our student population increases, and our campus grows, we are facing more challenges in terms of parking. In order to better serve our students, over 200 faculty and staff will be parking off campus daily, Monday through Thursday, to create more available parking on the main campus. The University continues to explore other short and long term parking options.
The parking permit MUST be permanently affixed inside the glass on the lower corner of the front windshield on the passenger side. The UNH parking software interfaces with other UNH data bases and will automatically determine whether an applicant is eligible for a parking permit, as determined by the number of credits required. The software will also track the issuance of parking tickets, tow warnings and the towing of vehicles. Students who have properly registered a vehicle will receive an automatically generated e-mail notifying them of a ticket, tow warning and a tow.
Eligibility and Lot Assignments
Resident freshmen may not obtain parking permits. A minimum of 21 credits is required for sophomore status and a minimum of 57 credits is required for upperclass status. Resident sophomores will be restricted to the north campus lot (P25), resident upperclassmen will park on the main campus in designated lots, with overflow going to the North Campus lot (P25). The designated main campus lots for residents (those assigned to main campus residence halls) include the rear of Winchester Hall (P12,13), the upper Winchester Hall lot near Kayo Field (P20), the upper Bergami lot (formerly New Hall - P19) on the west side of Bergami Hall, and the lower lot on the east side (P17).
Residents of Forest Hills are restricted parking at that complex. Those sophomores residing at Forest Hills who did not receive parking provelages at Forest Hills will be restricted to the North Campus lot (P25) for parking. Residents of Forest Hills, Savin Court, Regency and Main St. Condominiums are not permitted to bring their vehicle to the main campus unless they are participating in the on-campus program and pay the $200 parking fee.
All commuter students are eligible for parking permits. There is no charge for the first commuter permit. There is a charge of $200 for any subsequent commuter permit. Commuting students will park in any main campus area except those designated for on campus resident upperclassmen (Red Lots on the map). Commuters may also use the Wade Street, Pruden Street and Campbell Avenue and Charger Plaza parking areas. Please see the parking map for further details.
All on-campus resident students, and resident students residing at Forest Hills, will be charged a $200 parking fee. This fee is payable only by credit card and must be paid at the time of registration. This fee can not be charged to a student's account!
Obtaining a Permit
Once registered, those eligible for a parking permit must apply through the parking registration site where all personal and vehicle data will be entered by the applicant. The applicant must then bring his/her driver's license, vehicle registration certificate and UNH ID card to the UNH Police Department (or other designated location) to be pick up the permit.
Displaying Your Permit
The permit must then be permanently affixed to the lower corner of the front windshield on the passenger side of the vehicle, on the inside of the glass.
A parking fee of $200 will be charged to all resident students on the main campus and at Forest Hills. Any student request for a permit for a second vehicle, properly registered to that student, will result in an additional $200 fee. There is also a replacement fee for lost permits. Please refer to the complete text of the UNH Parking Regulations for additional information.
Rules & Regulations
By applying for a UNH parking permit the student is agreeing to abide by all UNH rules and regulations pertaining to parking and the operation of the permitted vehicle.
The Allingtown Fire Marshal has directed that the University keep the fire lanes and walkways open at all times. Violators parked in these areas will be immediately towed at their expense. Additionally, the UNH Police will strictly enforce all new parking policies. Any vehicle receiving more than three parking tickets during the academic year will automatically be ticketed and towed for every subsequent violation.
