New Parking Meters for Visitors and Vendors

As part of the College’s initiative to increase revenue generation, the Auxiliary Enterprises Corporation has approved a parking fee for vendors and other visitors who wish to park on campus during the day or during special events. Visitors will be able to park on campus as follows: $7 for special event parking including Commencement and Performing Arts Center, HPE and Academic Core events; $10 for daily parking.  To facilitate the collection of the daily and special event fees, two parking meters have been installed at the entrance of the Performance Arts Center parking lot on Guy R. Brewer Blvd across from the Academic Core building.   

In addition, vendors who have long-term work on campus will be able to request purchase of parking permits as follows: $50 for monthly parking; $250 for six month parking and $400 for annual parking.  

Students, Faculty and Staff will continue to be eligible to purchase parking at existing discounted rates.  The College community will always have priority parking over visitors and the Office of Public Safety will be managing  the availability of spaces for anyone with a campus parking permit. 

Parking passes can also be purchased online at: https://www.york.cuny.edu/public-safety/parking

Parking on the College campus is at the vehicle operator's risk. The registered driver is responsible for the use of the vehicle on campus. The College is NOT responsible for loss or damage to any registered or other vehicles, its contents, or equipment. The payment of parking fees provides only for the privilege of parking on campus, on a space-available basis.

Parking privileges are only granted once the required documentation is validated by the Public Safety Office. Upon validation only will the parking permit be issued to the vehicle/permit holder. Parking Permits must be displayed within the Permit Holder's Vehicle with the College Logo and ID Number facing outwards, ideally from the rearview mirror, or some other suitable, secure location in the vehicle. If there is no suitable, stable, or secure front facing surface in the holder's vehicle to display the pass, it's recommended that you store the permit securely in the glovebox, console etc, before placing the vehicle in motion. Lost or stolen parking permits must be reported to the New York City Police department.

Parking permits are NOT REFUNDABLE or REPLACEABLE. If a permit is lost or stolen, a new permit must be purchased at full price.
