CORVALLIS, Ore. — Parking permits are now for sale at Oregon State University, but the setup this year is a little different. The campus is turning to a zonal parking system.
Monday staff and faculty can buy their new permits, only if they’ve had a permit for the past three years. Each zone has a limited number of parking permits for sale, making it easier for drivers to find a spot.
“In the old system, you would have your parking permit and a lot of people would have to find a way to get to campus early enough to kind of beat everyone else to the space that they wanted and didn’t dare take a lunch break for fear that they’d lose their space,” said Meredith Williams, OSU Transportation Services Associate Director.
Throughout the next few weeks the rest of faculty and staff will be able to buy permits, then it’ll be the students’ turn.
