This year, with the opening of the Montgomery Garage at Main Campus, Parking Services implemented a variety of changes in order to reduce expenses, increase the use of technology, and lower student rates. Results have included more flexible hourly and daily rates at three locations, and a 35% increase in the number of commuter students signed up for guaranteed parking (with rates reduced from $90/month to $60/month). In addition, we closed several under productive lots. Our goal is to provide safe, convenient and cost effective parking for faculty, students, staff and visitors.
In order to keep the cost of parking as low as possible and lower our operating expenses, the Bell Garage and Temple Tower Lot on Main Campus are now closed and will only be available by special request for major University events. This fall, the area at 12th & Montgomery (formerly Lot 2) will re-open primarily for use by University employees who are registered with Parking Services as having a disability. No changes will be made to the parking facilities at the Health Sciences Center or Ambler campus.
Even with the changes to our operation, it will be necessary to implement some very low increases to parking rates for faculty and staff beginning July 1, 2014. Employee rates will increase by 1.7% at Main Campus ($2.00 per month), 2.5% at HSC ($3.00 per month), and 12% at Ambler ($13 per year). However, all student rates at all campuses will remain the same. The following schedule summarizes the changes in rates:
Hourly (Cash / Credit / Diamond Dollars)
Part-Time (Debit Card) Registration
Cash / Event / Privilege Card
Commuter Student (Semester)
Resident Student (Semester)
Main Campus Employee Monthly
HSC Employee Monthly
Ambler Employee (Academic Year)
Ambler Student (Semester)
Ambler Student (Academic Year)
