Do I still need a visitor pass to park in Lot A?

Since we’re enforcing parking permit requirements, yes, if you are parking on campus you will need a permit. Visitors can still get parking permits for free, for up to three days, one of two ways. Email parking@augsburg.edu at least two business days before you’ll be here with the date/time of your visit, and where you’ll be on campus so we can put you in a lot convenient to that location (pending availability). Or stop by dispatch in the Urn/Mort lobby, with the person you’re visiting, be prepared to provide ID, and a dispatcher will make a visitor permit for you at the window. Since we have a smaller volume of cars, other Augsburg lots will be available to you, not just lot A. Of course, you can park in Lot A like usual.

I’m a WEC student, do I still have to park in Lot L if I’m on campus on weekdays before 4:30pm?

No, time restrictions are no longer valid during the summer. With so many fewer cars on campus, WEC permit holders are free park in any Augsburg surface lot at anytime.

I parked in OGC underground during the Spring, can I use that permit to park in the Anderson/Luther lot?

Yes,  underground lot permits will be valid in any surface lot for the summer. Continue to display your underground lot hangtag to prevent receiving “No Valid Permit” violations.

If I purchased a fall permit but lost it, do I have to pay for a summer permit?

No, if you had a valid permit this year, this fall, or this spring, you do not need to by a new summer parking permit. Instead,  send an email to parking@augsburg.edu that includes your name, the type of permit you had, and the license plate of the car you will have on campus, and a dash permit will be made up and sent to you. The permit will have your car’s license plate on it, so just print that permit out and display it in your vehicle when parked on campus.

Can I use my fac/staff fall permit in Lot B behind Mort this summer?

Yes, a fac/staff permit purchased in the fall of 2013-2014 will be good in any Augsburg lot this summer. Likewise, any permit purchased during 2013-2014 will be good in any Augsburg lot for the summer of 2014. HOWEVER, we will be enforcing lot designations again in the fall (fac/staff permits are only good in lots D, G, J, & L) so we strongly encourage you to park in your designated lots when you can to keep up good parking habits.

Do I need to buy a summer permit to park on 8th street?

Yes, 8th street is an Augsburg street that we patrol for permits, so if you are parking on 8th street during the summer you will need an Augsburg parking permit. HOWEVER, if you have already purchased a permit this year, you do not need to buy a summer permit. Any 2013-2014 permit will be valid on 8th street, as well as in any other Augsburg lots and streets. This map designates which streets are Augsburg owned streets: http://web.augsburg.edu/dps/commuter.pdf

Where do I pick up my permit after I’ve ordered and paid for it?

Permits will be available for pick up from DPS dispatch in the Urn/Mort lobby. Urness & Mortensen halls are the two tall towers on 21st avenue and 8th street, near the barrier for I-94. Pull into the parking lot either in front of or behind Urn/Mort, park in the ten-minute zone underneath the lobby, and head up the stairs.

Please allow at least 2 business days after purchase for processing before coming to pick up your permit. You must have a valid photo id in order to pick up your permit. Any questions: email parking@augsburg.edu.
