The University Record, January 10, 1994

Security increased; parking structures open at night

To increase campus security, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) in December increased its patrols around major residence halls on both Central and North campuses and opened three Central Campus parking structures for free parking in the evening for students and employees.

In the pilot program that will continue through the end of January, students, faculty and staff with University ID can park free 6 p.m.–6 a.m. nightly in the staff-paid areas of the Fletcher, Hill and Thompson street structures. DPS and Parking Services staff are patrolling and monitoring access to the structures.

At the end of the month the University will evaluate the pilot program to determine the level of use, personnel costs, how the evening parking program can be improved, and whether it will be necessary to charge a nominal fee to defray a portion of the cost.

The evening parking program and increased patrols are part of the University’s continuing efforts to provide a safe environment for all members of the University community, according to Public Safety Director Leo J. Heatley.
