PARKING RULES AND REGULATIONS
ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS AND INSTRUCTORS: Any outstanding parking tickets must be paid off before being issued another permit.
All OLLI members must have a parking decal clearly displayed in order to utilize OLLI at UConn’s parking options.
Please note that OLLI and the Waterbury Campus do not administer or replace parking decals for UConn/Campus-related parking. Semester parking decals can be purchased directly from University Parking Services, Storrs, CT at discounted rates. Each semester, please find the most up-to-date prices on the application itself. The link to the application is as follows: https://park.uconn.edu/olli-parking-information/
As noted, if you plan to use UConn Parking, you must have a current parking decal. You must apply for a parking permit on your own initiative. OLLI and/or Parking Services will NOT reach out to you first. If you do not choose to use UConn parking, you can use other private or municipal parking options. Carpooling is another way to reduce traveling and parking expenses.
