Lot C EV Charging

Lot C is ordinarily a reserved lot requring a special type of Faculty/Staff permit, however there are two electric vehicle charging spaces that can be used by anyone with an electric vehicle and a valid permit of any kind. These spaces are first come, first served.

These spots are not owned by Parking Services, so inquiries should be directed to the Office of Sustainability.
