Campus Parking Policy
Westminster has a total of 909 regular parking spaces on the core campus. The Garfield school provides an additional 187 spaces. During peak hours (Monday through Thursday, between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm) there may be a total of 1,800 people on the Westminster campus, still leaving a large deficit in the amount of parking available.
In an effort to decrease the number of cars on campus and promote more sustainable transportation Westminster is launching a new parking program with a variety of options.
- Priced permitting - As a new parking policy is implemented this school year, students, faculty, staff and alumni will be charged a $150 annual fee to park on the core Westminster campus. The permitting is enforced Monday - Friday between 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.
- Transportation alternatives - 30% of Westminster students and faculty and staff live within 5-10 miles of campus. These commuters are encouraged to walk, ride their bikes, or use public transportation to come to campus. All students and staff are given a UTA bus pass that can be used throughout the year.
- Ride Share - Westminster is encouraging faculty, staff, and student to car pool and ride share to campus. The core campus has prime parking spots dedicated to ride share participants. The college also has a web site to facilitate people looking to ride share, and additionally offers the U Car Share Program.
Westminster's primary focus is to decrease the number of cars coming to campus daily, in effort to support our climate control initiative. We encourage alumni to come to campus after the permitting hours, or park at the Garfield School (1830 South 1500 East) where there is no parking permit fee.
If you have any questions, concerns or complaints, please contact the alumni office at 801.832.2748 or email@example.com.
