COVID-Related Discounts & Adjustments 

Permits for faculty and staff are based on annual pay and are prorated monthly. Due to modified operations related to COVID-19, permits are being sold on a term (semester) basis for fall 2020 and spring 2021. Parking rates will continue at the 2019-2020 academic year rates, and the semester rate will be half of the applicable annual rate. Fall 2020 payroll deductions for parking permits will occur over nine pay cycles for those who sign up by the first pay cycle. Spring deductions will be done over 10 pay cycles.

In addition, faculty/staff fall and spring term permits will be discounted an additional 50 percent, and all faculty/staff will remain in their 2019-2020 parking salary tiers. Any changes over the past year that moved a faculty or staff member into a higher tier will not be applied for this academic year.

Daily permits will be available for faculty and staff in their designated parking areas beginning Aug. 24 through ParkMobile and at pay stations. Daily permits on the main campus will cost $6/day (including General Services, Public Safety and Core spaces for commuters). Daily parking will be available in Overflow spaces in West Village garage and stadium lots for $3/day. 

Please visit towson.edu/parking/ for more information and instructions for purchasing daily permits.
