New Parking Option
Charger Plaza parking lot - (P35) on the UNH parking map - is a new parking option available to university commuter students, faculty and staff. The parking lot is behind Charger Plaza which is located across Campbell Avenue from Bethel Hall. The parking lot can accommodate up to 140 vehicles.
The lot is well-lit and a security officer will be posted there Monday – Thursday 7 am – 10 pm to provide security and assist with pedestrian crossing. UNH Police will also monitor this area as Graduate classes will be in session at this location as well. All vehicles parked in this lot require a valid UNH parking permit. This lot is a park and walk lot – no shuttle service will be provided from this lot.
Reminder: This lot is not authorized for gold/silver permit parking on your off-campus days. The gold/silver permit lots remain Bergami Hall West, North Campus and St. Paul’s church which are all serviced by UNH Courtesy Vans.
This section contains the most pertinent information about parking on the UNH campus. All persons who will possess or operate a motor vehicle on the West Haven campus are required to display a valid UNH parking permit on the vehicle.
If you had a valid permit for the 2011-2012 academic year you simply need to update your vehicle and personal information, if there are any changes, and then pick up your permit at the UNH Police Department. It is best to wait at least 24 hours from the time you apply on line until you come in to pick up your permit. This will allow time to process your request. If you are unable to pick up your permit during normal business hours, please call 203-932-7013 to make arrangements.
Students may pick up their permits by presenting their driver's license, the vehicle's registration certificate and their UNH identification card at the UNH Police Department after doing the online application. Resident students residing on the main campus, and those at Forest Hills, must pay a $200 parking fee at the time of application. This fee must be paid by credit card. It cannot be applied to a student's account.
As our student population increases, and our campus grows, we are facing more challenges in terms of parking. In order to better serve our students, over 200 faculty and staff will be parking off campus daily, Monday through Thursday, to create more available parking on the main campus. The University continues to explore other short- and long-term parking options.
It is important to note that the Allingtown Fire Marshal has directed that the University keep the fire lanes and walkways open at all times. Violators parked in these areas will be immediately towed at their expense. Additionally, the UNH Police will strictly enforce all new parking policies. Any vehicle receiving more than three parking tickets during the academic year will automatically be ticketed and towed for every subsequent violation.
