PARKING REGULATIONS FOR SUMMER 2021

The Office of Parking and Transportation Services will manage and distribute parking permits and maps for summer programs. Program Directors must contact Parking and Transportation Services at least two weeks in advance of the start of the summer program. Program Directors will pick up the parking permits and maps at the Parking and Transportation Services office in G01 Edgar Brown Union.


Program Staff Parking for Clemson University Sponsored Programs

Permits for Free Parking will be limited to individuals who are NOT Clemson students, faculty or staff and who are working for a program sponsored by a Clemson University department. If you have summer counselors who are not enrolled as Clemson students and who are working for a Clemson department program, they can obtain the free summer parking permits. All Clemson students will use the parking permits that they purchased for the 2020-2021 academic year. For a complete listing of parking permit options, please see Section I – Clemson University Affiliated Program Parking Fees in the “Summer 2021 Parking Fees” section below.

 

Permits for Free Parking useable by individuals aiding a Clemson department sponsored program can be used for non-credit, pre-freshman, or graduated Clemson students, but only if they are not taking summer courses for credit. Parking and Transportation Services receives daily updates from the Registrar to ascertain whether students are enrolled for credit. If an individual is enrolled for credit, they must obtain a student parking permit.

 

Program Staff Parking for NON-Clemson University Sponsored Programs

All individuals aiding programs not sponsored by a Clemson University department, are not eligible for Free Parking and are subject to paying temporary parking permit rates found in the Section II - Non-affiliated Program Parking Fees of the “Summer 2021 Parking Fees” section below.

 

Enrolled Student Parking (including Tigertown Summer Bound)

Students enrolled for credit only during the summer will need to purchase one of two available permits as outlined in Section III – Student Parking Fees of the “Summer 2021 Parking Fees” section below. The section shows the full price for each type of available parking pass and prorated prices for passes purchased within specified time periods. For example, a freshman student will pay $30 if he/she arrives on campus July 1, or $16 for arrival after July 16.

 

If commuter students become resident counselors, they may continue to use their current commuter permit to park in resident areas. All commuter and resident permits are valid for all student parking areas (resident, apartment, commuter, and any valid permit spaces).

 

Purchasing Parking Permits

State money cannot be used to pay for employee or student parking permits. Thus, IDO¹s cannot be used to pay for student or employee parking passes, by decree of the University auditors.

Summer students that need Parking Permits must purchase them individually. Program Directors may facilitate this process by obtaining permit applications from Parking and Transportation Services and mailing them to summer students. The students will then return the applications with personal checks for the correct amount, or they can pay at Parking and Transportation Services when they arrive on campus. If they choose to pay upon arrival, the Program Director should request free parking for a specified check-in day using the online request form. The participants then will either visit Parking and Transportation Services individually or the Program Director may collect their applications and checks and bring them to Parking and Transportation Services to obtain the permits.

 

Metered Parking Spaces

Multi-space metered spaces have been set up across campus for short term visitor parking with no permit required. If a special guest, parent, or other summer participant visits campus, they may park and pay at a meter space. Be sure to read the regulations at that the meter locations as some meters are for visitors only while others are accessible to Clemson University parking permit holders. If a participant purchases a summer permit, they are subject to the permit holder time limit at the metered locations. All persons, visitors and permit holders, are REQUIRED to pay the parking meter if they park in a metered space from 7 AM – 10 PM seven days a week.

 

For a map of metered locations across campus and how to use the meters, visit the Metered Parking page on Parking and Transportation Services website https://www.clemson.edu/campus-life/parking/meter.html.

For relaxed parking enforcement requests, please complete the Summer Camps Parking Request Form found on the Parking and Transportation Services website at https://clemson.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bxsS9unH2wtvRcN at least 2 weeks prior to the event with the event details including the location, date, and time space of the event. Relaxed parking enforcement for special events would be appropriate when a large number of visitors (200+) come in for less than a day or for drop-off and pick-up of summer program participants. This will avoid tickets being issued for those participants parked in valid parking spaces. Tickets or towing may still occur if a parked car blocks traffic flow or impedes public safety.
