given contribute to the health of our revered University. In addition, the revenue
generated from visitor parking helps to minimize the increases to annual parking
permit prices and to cover the cost of the staff required to work the event.
We recognize that with compromise there is some inconvenience. We are committed
to working with hosting departments to help minimize the impact on our permitted
customers. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
