Parking Permits for 2012-2013
The parking permit fees for the 2012-2013 academic year have been established. Faculty, staff, and students may purchase their permits beginning Friday, Aug. 17. Employees are encouraged to use payroll deduction for their vehicle registration; this reduces the cost of administering the overall parking program. Part-time benefit eligible employees, who will be employed for a full academic semester, may be eligible for payroll deduction; eligibility will be determined at the time of registration. Employees choosing not to utilize payroll deduction or who are not eligible to participate may pay for their permits via cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).

Generally faculty and staff wishing to purchase parking permits must appear in person at the Campus Transportation Management Office (CTMO), Leahy Hall, Room 121, and present a valid CUA ID card (Cardinal Card) and vehicle registration. On Aug. 17 and Aug. 20 through Aug. 22, faculty and staff may purchase parking permits at the Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center, Room 321. Starting Monday, Aug. 27, faculty, staff, and students can purchase parking permits at the CTMO in Leahy. Persons registering vehicles will be issued one permit (hangtag). Registrants who operate an alternate vehicle must transfer the permit between vehicles. Faculty permits are provided to full-time members of the faculty, as determined by the Office of the Provost. For more information, call 202-319-5111.

Network Name Change
On Thursday, Aug. 16, the name of the "CUA Wireless" network on campus changes to "CUA Guest." Students, faculty, and staff who are using "CUA Wireless" will have to reconnect to "CUA Guest." The "CUAuth Wireless" network will not change. For more information, please visit
