Visitor & Guest Information
It is the mission of Parking Services to provide safe, effective and efficient use of University parking. Visitors are always welcome at UTC. Guests are subject to all parking regulations and it is the responsibility of the department or individual who arranges for visitor parking to make sure the proper information is conveyed to visitors. All use of University facilities must have prior approval of the Facilities Use Committee.
East Fifth Street Garage
To improve parking for visitors the East Fifth Street Parking Garage was developed. As part of this initiative to enhance convenience for visitors, an attendant is present at the lot's entrance to act as UTC's "ambassador," guiding our visitors and providing information. As on many other campuses this lot will be sustained through fees. Faculty, staff, departments and student sponsors are encouraged to contact the parking office in advance to make arrangements for their guests. Campus maps can be supplied to mail to guests prior to arrival on campus.
Parking Garage Rates:
0-2 hrs - $2.00
over 2 hrs - $4.00
Maximum daily rate for University Departments is $3.00. Departments may establish an account with Parking Services to pay for their guest's parking. To establish an account send a written request to Parking Services listing the account number to be charged and individuals who will be authorized to sign for charges.
Other Visitor Parking
Meters are located throughout the campus to provide short-term parking for occasional visitors.
UTC maintains a user based parking system paid for by permit fees. To protect the parking privileges of our constituents, visitor parking in reserved and general lots is extremely limited. These lots may be used on a restricted basis for "special guests" if individual arrangements have been made with Parking Services. Requests should be submitted to Parking Services at least 48 hours in advance. The charge for these areas will be $4.00 per day.
Departments may purchase a space convenient to the office to be used by individual guests from outside the campus community. The charge for these spaces will be at the current reserved rate. These spaces may not be used for parking by any individual on the university payroll and will be charged to the appropriate departmental budget.
Vendor decals are available at Parking Services. These decals authorize parking in service vehicle areas, general parking lots and loading zones.
