Parking On Campus

general overview

As an urban community, Augsburg continues to work hard to maintain ample and effective parking for our University. While embracing the city and urban environment, parking can be limited. Parking on Augsburg’s campus does require a valid Augsburg issued permit at all times your vehicle is parked in an Augsburg space/lot. Your permit must reflect the appropriate area you are parked in, or you may still be subject to ticketing and/or towing at your expense. Please take the time to look at our map of Augsburg’s Campus for locations of parking lots, and the type of permit required.  For additional information please email parking@augsburg.edu.

Parking registration

Due to the current pandemic and Augsburg’s effort to limit the amount of people on campus, the Augsburg Department of Public Safety is not requiring parking permits for the 2020 Summer term.  At this point, we anticipate returning to requiring parking permits for the Fall 2020 semester in order to park in Augsburg lots; however, we understand that we must remain flexible and may adjust permit requirements depending on the modality for the Fall term (in-person, online, hybrid, etc.).  We will communicate parking sales dates or any changes to permit requirements in A-mail, email, and on our website.  

We will be holding permit prices steady this year; prices for the different permit options are as follows:

Semester/Year

Student Resident: $195/$390

Student Commuter: $179/$358

AU/Graduate: $61/$121

Adjunct Faculty or Part-Time Staff (below .5 FTE): $105/$210

Full-Time Faculty/Staff: $252/$504

Luther Underground*: $470/$1,400

OGC Underground*: $505/$1,515

*Underground spaces are offered on a first come, first serve basis and are offered to students first; any underground spaces available at the time Staff/Faculty permit sales go live will be offered to Staff/Faculty

Please email parking@augsburg.edu with any questions


FIRST YEAR RESIDENT RESTRICTIONS

First year resident students are ineligible for parking their vehicles on campus. Very few exceptions can be made each academic year and are limited to medical necessities. In order to request an exception, you must email the Director of Public Safety, Tony Erchul, at erchula@augsburg.edu with an explanation of your situation and why you are in need of an exception. All other forms of request will not be considered.

Accessible Parking

Anyone parking in handicap spaces on Augsburg’s campus must have two permits: an Augsburg permit and a State Accessibility permit. Vehicles without the necessary permits parked in designated handicapped spaces may be ticketed by Minneapolis Police and Augsburg University Public Safety. There are accessible spaces available in every lot on campus.

Please note that ALL Augsburg permits are valid in ALL handicapped spaces on campus when a valid MN handicapped license is also displayed.

Motorcycles/Mopeds

Motorcycles and Mopeds are not required to be registered through Parking Services though it is highly recommended. Registering your vehicle allows Public Safety to contact you if we notice a problem such as damage to your vehicle or if your vehicle needs to be moved due to an emergency or construction issue on campus. For instructions on how to register, select “Register for Parking ” A motorcycle/moped permit is not required to use the marked Motorcycle and Moped parking areas. The designated areas on the map below are the only areas motorcycles/mopeds may park.

Motorcycles/mopeds may park only in designated areas. See the Motorcycle/Moped and Bicycle parking map (PDF).

Bicycles

Bicycles are not required to be registered, though it is highly recommended. Registering your bicycle allows Public Safety to contact you if there is an issue with your bicycle and it needs to be moved. Stolen bicycles are often recovered by Minneapolis Police. When your bicycle is registered, the opportunity for your bicycle to be returned to you is greatly increased. Bicycle Registration materials are also available at the Public Safety desk in the Urness/Mortensen lobby. Completed forms can be turned into Public Safety.

Bicycles may only be parked and locked to official bicycle racks. Bicycles parked along fences, handrails, or signposts will be impounded. Unclaimed bicycles will be donated to local bicycle restoration organizations. See the Motorcycle/Moped and Bicycle parking map (PDF).

Parking Enforcement

Augsburg DPS personnel will be issuing citations and towing vehicles without valid permits in all campus surface lot parking areas. Primary hours of enforcement will be 8:00am – 4:00pm during the academic year.

Vehicles parked in a fire lane, on a striped area, blocking handicapped access or driveways, in reserved spaces, or on any unpaved surface, will also be subject to citation and towing at the owner/operator’s expense without notice.

Parking fines must be paid to DPS at the dispatch center or mailed to DPS at Campus Box #78, within 14 days of the issue date. Unpaid fines will be assessed to the individual’s Student Augsburg account.  For Faculty and Staff, unpaid fines will be forwarded to Payroll to be deducted on the next available payroll payment, and a late fee may be assessed. Anyone with an outstanding fine will not be allowed to register, receive transcripts, or purchase a parking permit in the future. Fines outstanding for more than one semester may be forwarded to a collection agency. Parking on campus is a privilege. The privilege may be revoked for continued or gross violations of parking regulations.
