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 structure is implemented this school year, students, faculty, and staff will be charged a $150 fee to park on the core Westminster campus.
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. As a community member you may see an increase in the number of cars parked on your street during peak times. Westminster is providing students, faculty, and staff with a parking handbook outlining the new parking program, and informing them of their options for commuting to campus. Thank you for your support in this initiative.
