Transportation Services is demonstrating its commitment to sustainable commuting by offering free electric vehicle charging and preferential parking for low-emission and alternative fuel vehicles in the Hoy Road parking garage.

The demand for vehicle charging stations on campus has grown with the increasing popularity of hybrid and all-electric vehicles. To meet that demand, two charging stations were added on the first level of the Hoy Road parking garage. The charging spaces are time- and permit-restricted from 7:30 am – 5 pm, Monday through Friday. The permit restriction is lifted after 5 pm and on weekends, but users must comply with the three-hour parking limit at all times.

To promote the use of low-emission and alternative-fuel vehicles, several spaces within the garage are reserved for Low Emission and Alternative Fuel vehicle parking. The spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis for cars that meet the standard set by the Green Building Council. For more information about eligible vehicles, visit

Other recent upgrades and improvements to the facility include a complete LED bulb re-lamping project, recycling and landfill-waste bins, and public service announcement and enhanced wayfinding signage.
