IMPORTANT PARKING UPDATE – APRIL 24, 2020
NOTICE TO ALL STUDENTS REGARDING SPRING 2020 PARKING REFUNDS:
We are pleased to announce that the Lehman College Auxiliary Enterprise Corporation Executive Committee has approved the refund of student parking permits for the unused portion of the Spring 2020 semester. The refund for students with daily passes will be $48 and for students with evening passes $35. The refund will be returned to your original form of payment (i.e. credit for card for on line payments and student accounts for Bursar payments). Due to the large number of refunds that must be issued we expect this process to be fully completed within the next 30 days. We would like to thank all Lehman students for their patience and understanding during this time. Stay safe and be well.
Student parking rate structures remain unchanged from the previous semester. The rates are $75 for day permits and $55 for evening only permits. The day permit grants full access to the student parking in both the day and evening hours. Whereas, the night only permit allows for parking in the student or faculty lot after 5:15 pm only. Please consider your planned usage when selecting the type of permit you would like to purchase, since all parking fees are non-refundable. Permits can only be used by the student whose name the permit is in and only while they are on campus.
If you wish to purchase a parking permit, payment can be made in person at the Bursar’s Office. Due to changes in Board of Trustee policies regarding the acceptance of monies, the Office of Campus Activities cannot accept any payments for parking permits. In person payments must be done using cash, check, or money order at the Bursar Office, located in Shuster Hall Room 031.
Once you have paid for your permit, you must bring your paid receipt and student ID to the Office of Campus Activities in Shuster 078 to have your ID validated and to obtain your parking permit. All parking permits must be displayed in the vehicle while parked in any of the college’s parking lots. Cars that do not display a permit will be ticketed. Parking is extremely limited so it is essential that all parking permits are picked up by Monday, February 3, 2020 to ensure that you have a space in the parking lot. Permits not picked up by that time are subject to forfeiture to persons on the waiting list. Please remember that there are no refunds.

As many of you are aware, an unsafe condition exists as students, faculty, and staff attempt to cross the street on Goulden Avenue to access the South Parking Lot. The condition is being created by a constant flow of double-parked cars that impede both vehicular and pedestrian movement in the area.
To alleviate this condition, the Public Safety Department will issue “double-parking Summons”. Our intention with this initiative is not to cause inconvenience to any member of the College Community but rather to provide a safer environment in that area.
Please be advised that failure to pay parking violations summonses may result in the revocation of your campus parking privileges, deactivation of your dual card and, for students a negative service indicator will be placed on your CUNYfirst account. Anyone who repeatedly violates College parking regulations will forfeit their privilege of using the College parking facilities, and will be reported to the proper College authorities.
