Students - July 8, 2019

Dear Students,

I am pleased to share with you a new approach to parking permits this fall at Winthrop. After requests for changing to a removable parking permit that is not affixed to the vehicle, we are now implementing hangtags for the 2019-20 fiscal year.

The hangtags will cost members of our community the same as the former decals. However, you may now register two cars per hangtag and switch the hangtag between the two vehicles. Like the former decals, the hangtags will include security features to reduce the chance of successfully duplicating the permit.

It is important to note that this new change will put more responsibility on the person who registered the vehicle to make sure she or he keeps up with the permit and displays it as required. There will be fines for individuals who register their vehicle but do not display their permit and/or park in locations where they are not designated to park.  

The hangtags soon will be available for purchase. Campus Police will send out an email alerting you to the hangtags’ availability so you may purchase your permit.

Please read these frequently asked questions about the new permits and the general registration process.  

I appreciate the efforts of the team that has worked to implement this new approach for the 2019-20 year, and I thank in advance the parking enforcement officers who will work to implement the new system.
