Parking Rates for Fiscal Year 2022 (FY 2022)

  • The FY22 monthly permit rates are to be set rates for FY20.  The 10 percent reduction implemented for FY21 will expire for FY22 and there will be no additional increase to the FY20 rate.
    • For permit holders that pay monthly, the change will take effect on September 1, 2021.
    • For exempt employees, this rate change will be reflected in your October pay.
    • For non-exempt employees, the rate change will be reflected in your first pay in October.
    • Non-benefitted employees will see the change when paying for parking in September, and thereafter.
  • There is no increase in event parking rates in FY 2022. Event parking rates were last increased on July 1, 2018.
  • There is no increase in paid visitor parking rates in FY 2022. Paid visitor parking rates last increased on July 1, 2018.
     

How have parking rates been adjusted through the COVID-19 pandemic?

The parking department implemented several measures to assist the campus community during the pandemic.  With many staff and faculty working from home the department understood that flexibility was needed during this unprecedented time.

  • FY 20 parking holiday resulted in $228,539 of permit fees refunded
  • FY 21 parking holiday extended $231,833 returned
  • 10% reduction in parking rates for FY21 reduced costs to the community by as much as $145,916.
     

Why are parking rates restored to the FY2020 level?

This fall, the University of Denver anticipates returning to pre-pandemic modalities – largely in-person classes for undergraduates and a mix of in-person and online for graduate students. This includes reopening the campus for athletic events and other activities. The Budget Development process approved by the Board of Trustees has restored parking rates to the pre-pandemic level for several reasons. The University continues to pay down the debt incurred from building parking garages. This the largest single expense related to parking. The University parking system consists of more than 5,900 spaces, including 7 parking structures, 60 off-street lots, and other spaces across the campus. The costs for operating and maintenance are significant, and they increase over time because as parking assets age, maintaining them becomes more expensive. The typical annual increase to parking rates applied each year will not be added as to minimize financial impacts to the campus community.

Annual Bike Registration

Registering your bike assists in recovery in case of theft, and allows owners to be notified if there is a problem with the bike. Registration is free, but requires an annual update so we know that your bike is active on campus. Register at mobility/bicycling. If you have any questions please call us at 303-871-3210 or email parking@du.edu.

U-lock Enforcement Policy

We want to make you aware that beginning immediately the bicycle U-lock policy will be enforced regularly. This policy can be found on the Campus Safety website, Bicycle Security, and on the Parking and Mobility website, Bicycles . Remember, bicycles should not be locked to handrails, lampposts, or objects other than a bike rack.

As we realize that some of you may not have been aware of this policy we are giving you a grace period of one week to obtain a U-lock and properly secure your bicycle before Winter break. All bicycles left unsecured or improperly secured will be immobilized and/or impounded by the Parking and Mobility Services office.

Bicycles will only be released during our business hours. The Parking and Mobility office is open Monday – Friday from 8:30am until 4:30pm. We are closed all University holidays.
