POLICY:

PARK AT YOUR OWN RISK.  THE COLLEGE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THEFT, LOSS OR DAMAGES. 

There are three (3) parking areas available for FACULTY AND STAFF ONLY and all require a permit.  Parking is available on a first come first served basis at all three locations subject to the time constraints below.  Overnight parking on campus is prohibited unless one is at work (i.e.: Physical Plant workers, Public Safety Officers, Researchers who work after normal business hours, etc).  There is no through traffic on Convent Avenue from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM weekdays.

STUDENT PARKING: 
There is no general student parking available.  Paid Parking may be offered to students with disabilities who have a New York State or NYC issued disabled parking permit or license plate.

LOCATIONS:
  • South Campus Parking Lot; the entrance is at 133rd and Convent Avenue.
  • NAC Parking Lot; the entrance is just off Amsterdam Avenue at 135th Street.
  • St. Nicholas Terrace on the East side of the street in the designated areas between 140th Street and 134th Street for faculty members with permits .  PLEASE READ ALL STREET SIGNS BEFORE YOU PARK.   THESE PERMITS ARE LIMITED IN NUMBER AND ONCE THEY ARE GONE NO MORE WILL BE AVAILABLE UNTIL THE NEXT PARKING PERIOD. 
HOURS OF OPERATION:
  1. The South Campus parking lot is available everyday for 24 hours each day (restrictions apply).
  2. The NAC lot is open from 6:30 am until 10:30 pm - Monday through Friday.
  3. Parking along St. Nicholas Terrace is authorized by the City of New York from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday.
TYPES OF PERMITS AND FEES (ALL FEES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE):

Permits are valid for an entire year (July 1 to June 30) but they are issued twice in a year.   The first permit is valid from July 1 to December 31.  The second permit is valid from January 1 to June 30.  We do this so if you choose you can pay for your permit in 2 equal installments.

There are five (5) types of permits:
  1. General parking permits ($600) are available to all faculty and staff and are good for either the South Campus lot or the NAC lot.
  2. St. Nicholas Terrace parking permits are free to all faculty and staff (Please note that there will be a limited number of St. Nicholas Terrace parking permits available.  Faculty and staff may obtain both General and St. Nicholas Terrace parking permits simultaneously).
  3. Reserved parking permits ($700) are limited and are for the NAC lot.  If reserved parking spaces are not utilized by 10 am by the permit holder they will be made available to General Parking permit holders on a first come first served basis.  Reserved Permit holders must call before 10:00 am if they intend to be late in order to have their space held.  Due to limited space, reserved parking permits will be limited to certain pre-authorized Officers and Deans of the College and to specific faculty and staff whose daily responsibilities justify a reserved space.  
  4. Evening parking permits ($300) are available for parking after 3 PM to all faculty and staff for either the South Campus lot or the NAC lot.
  5. Motorcycle parking permits ($250) are available to all faculty and staff for the NAC lot.
  6. There are designated spaces for Faculty, Staff and Students with disabilities in the NAC lot who have federal, state and/or NYC issued handicapped parking permits and/or license plates.  These permits cost the same as the regular parking permits listed above.
DISCOUNTS FOR ENERGY EFFICIENT VEHICLES:  A 20% discount will be applied to each form of permit if the permit hiolder  drives an approved low emission and fuel-efficient vehicle.  If your vehicle registration doesn't list your vehicle fuel as Hybrid or Electric then you will need to provide alternative proof.  Contact Parking at (212) 650-7183 for details.
