Dear Courtyard Resident,
Welcome to Winthrop University and the Courtyard! As you may already know, parking at the Courtyard is limited, and as such, we have a set procedure for distribution of those parking permits. There are two ways that Courtyard parking permits are assigned:
When the 220 allocated spaces inside the Courtyard Gated Area have been assigned permits, 31 additional permits will be issued for signed and designated parking spaces located in the Campus Walk parking lot known as the Bronze Lot. These signed and designated parking spaces are known to Winthrop University as the Courtyard Annex Area. After these spaces have been allocated, a waiting list will be compiled using the completed Winthrop University academic hour process. Obtaining a parking permit is optional, but a Courtyard parking permit will be required to park in either the Courtyard Gated Area or the Courtyard Annex Area . Resident parking permits will be required for those students not receiving a Courtyard permit in order for those students to park in all Resident designated lots.
All students registered as of August 1, 2016 to stay at the Courtyard will be considered for a Courtyard parking permit. Campus Police will award 251 permits from the process. Those students awarded a Courtyard parking permit will be listed and appear on the Courtyard Parking Privileges page of the Campus Police website. Students that do not receive a Courtyard parking permit from the process will be placed on a waiting list, which also appears at the bottom of the Courtyard Parking Privileges page, and those students will be given an opportunity to receive a Courtyard Parking permit as they become available.
Once you have verified that you are eligible to receive a Courtyard parking permit, you are required to come to Campus Police between Monday, August 15th and Friday, August 26th between the hours of 9:00am – 2:00pm to complete the necessary paperwork and pick up the permit. If you are awarded a Courtyard parking permit but fail to register for the permit by Friday, August 26th at 2:00pm, you will forfeit the Courtyard parking permit and it will be awarded to another student listed on the waiting list.
Students who are deemed disabled by the State of South Carolina will be issued a Disabled permit automatically.
If you are awarded a Courtyard permit and you know in advance that you will not need a permit, will elect not to purchase a Courtyard parking permit, or you qualify for a Disabled parking permit, please contact Parking Enforcement at 803-323-2553.
Once you receive a parking permit to park in the Courtyard Gated Area, your student identification card will be activated to operate the parking lot gates.
Please note that after receiving your Courtyard parking permit and before operating your vehicle on the campus of Winthrop University, it is your responsibility to go on-line and make yourself familiar with the Traffic & Parking Regulations, located under the Parking Enforcement menu to the left of the Campus Police website.
Courtyard parking permits are optional and not required. When the Courtyard parking permit is awarded, the following rules must be adhered to:
