Student Parking

Summer 2022 Student parking permits expire August 31, 2022.

Student parking lot permits for the Fall 2022 semester will go on sale beginning Monday, August 22, 2022. If you are a registered student for the Fall 2022 term and wish to purchase a parking permit, payment can be made online or at the Bursar’s office beginning at that time.

To be eligible to purchase a permit you must be enrolled for the Fall semester, have a valid Lehman student picture ID that gives you access to the campus, have no outstanding financial obligations to the College including those for the Fall 2022 semester, and must have met CUNY’s vaccination requirements. If you do not currently have a physical photo ID, you must send an e-mail to public.safety@lehman.cuny.edu for further instructions. The Lehman 360 Digital ID will not allow you access into any of the college’s parking lots and a physical ID is required.

The student parking rate structure remains unchanged from the previous semesters, the rates are $75 for day permits and $55 for evening only permits. The day permit grants full access to the student parking for both day and evening hours, whereas the evening only permit allows for student parking access after 5:15 pm. Please consider your planned usage when selecting the type of permit you would like to purchase since all parking fees are non-refundable. Permits are non-transferable and can only be used by the permit-holding student while on campus. Persons who leave their cars parked while off campus will be in violation of College policy, risk losing their parking privileges and are subject to enforcement actions including towing at the permit holder’s expense.

To make a payment using Visa or MasterCard including VISA and Mastercard debit cards please visit the Lehman College parking website at https://secure.qgiv.com/for/hhlcaeci. If you cannot make a payment online you may make an in-person payment with cash, check or money order at the Bursar’s Office in Shuster 031. The Bursar’s office does not accept credit or debit card payments.

Once you have paid for your permit, you will need to go to the Campus Activities Office in Shuster Hall 078, with your Lehman physical ID and payment receipt to pick up your parking decal and have your ID activated for the Fall 2022 semester. Please note, that parking decals are required to park in any of the college’s parking lots and must be displayed at all times. Cars that do not display parking decals are subject to ticketing by Public Safety.

The Office of Campus Activities is not permitted to accept payments in their office, so if you would like to pay by cash, check or money order you can do so at the Bursar’s Office, Shuster Hall, Room 031.

After you have purchased your permit, you must bring your receipt and dual ID card to the Office of Campus Activities Office in Shuster Hall, room 078, to pick up your parking decal and have your dual ID card activated for the new year. Parking decal distribution will begin on Monday, August 22nd. Please do not come to the Office of Campus Activities prior to that date since we will not have parking decals ready for distribution since we are not expecting delivery from our vendor until Friday, August 19th. If you do not have an ID card, you will need to contact the Office Public Safety at 718-960-8593 for information on how to obtain one since this is required for parking privileges.

Parking permits must be displayed in the vehicle at all times when parked in any of the college’s parking lots. Cars that do not display a permit will be ticketed.

Reserved Parking Permits

Reserved parking permits should only be purchased online once you have been notified that your request for reserved parking has been approved for the FY 2022-23 academic year.

Requests for Lehman College’s 2022-23 reserved parking permits (i.e. South lot and Paul Avenue parking lots) are currently being accepted by the Office of Campus Activities, Shuster Hall room 078. The price of a reserved parking permit is $285. At this time, Science lot will not be reopening for the Fall semester and reserved parking availability will be limited to the South and Paul Avenue lots.

To be considered for reserved parking, you must complete and submit the Reserve Parking Request Form via email at lehman.parking@lehman.cuny.edu by close of business on Thursday, August 18, 2022. Please note that reserved parking is extremely limited so it is imperative that this form be completed demonstrating the need for “in-out” privileges in order to be considered; having a reserved parking space in the current year does not guarantee that you will receive one in the next academic year.

Enforcement

The College provides Campus Peace Officers for the safety of persons and property.

Officers will place tickets on all vehicles in violation of parking regulations.

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.

Penalties

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.

Should it become necessary to remove a vehicle which is found to be in violation of parking regulations, the owner will be liable for all expenses incurred.

If your vehicle is TOWED, report to the Public Safety Department for all the information needed to retrieve your vehicle. The 50th and 52nd Police Precincts (according to where the vehicle is parked) will be notified of the towing occurrence.
