Student Parking

We are pleased to announce that the student parking lot permits for the Spring 2022 semester will go on sale beginning Tuesday, January 18, 2022. The online system will be ready to accept payments at that time. To be eligible to purchase a permit you must be enrolled for the Spring  semester, have a valid physical  student picture ID that gives you access to the campus, and have no  outstanding financial obligations to the College including those for the Spring 2022 semester.

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 in both the day and evening hours. Whereas, the evening only permit allows for access to the student parking lot 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. The permits are non-transferable can only be used by the student whose name the permit is in while they are on campus.

If you are a registered student for the Spring 2022 term and wish to purchase a parking permit, payment can be made online beginning Tuesday, January 18, 2022.  Please note that you must have met CUNY’s vaccination requirements and have a valid student picture ID that grants you access to campus to purchase a parking permit. If you do not have a physical picture ID you must login to Lehman360 and click the blue ID icon next to your EMPLID. For an ID card, email public.safety@lehman.cuny.edu requesting a physical ID card. They will let you know when you can pick it up at the main entrance at gate #5 on Goulden Ave.

To make a payment using Visa or MasterCard including VISA and Mastercard debit cards please visit the Lehman College parking websiteIf you cannot make a payment online and wish to do so in person at the Bursar’s Office, please send an email to bursar.department@lehman.cuny.edu to make the appropriate arrangements. Due to our remote status, online payments on the parking website are the preferred method of payment and will speed up the processing of your permit. Debit cards are accepted on the parking site.  

Once you have paid for your permit, your dual access ID will be programmed remotely. Please be sure to include your correct CUNYfirst EMPLID on the online payment site, since this is the unique identifier we need to program your current dual access ID card to grant access to the parking lot. After programming, you will be notified via an email from the Office of Campus Activities that your parking decal is ready for pick up and the pick-up location. You will be required to show your parking decal receipt and identification card, in order to pick up you Spring 2022 parking decal.  If you do not have a physical picture ID you must obtain one prior to picking up your parking decal since a physical ID is required for access into the lots.

All parking permit decals must be displayed in the vehicle while parked in any of the college’s parking lots. Cars that do not display a decal will be ticketed. Please remember that there are no refunds. 

Lastly, please remember that parking in the college lots is only permitted while you are on campus. Persons who leave their cars beyond this time period are in violation of College policy and risk losing their parking privileges and having a boot place on their car. Please, note parking permits must be displayed at all times. Penalties for violations include ticketing, fines, towing, an administrative hold on a student record and revocation of parking privileges. More detailed information regarding parking rules and privileges is available online.

Faculty and Staff Parking

Spring 2022 Faculty and Staff Parking permits sale start on Monday, December 6, 2021.  Parking permits for the 2022 Spring semester have been reduced to half of the annual rate which will be $92.50 for a regular parking permit, $142.50 for a reserved parking permit and $62.50 for Paul Avenue Evening Only parking permit. All parking permits will be good through August 31, 2022. We expect to resume selling annual parking permits in Fall 2022.

Please note that reserved parking will only be available in the South (Faculty and Staff) and Paul Avenue lots. As a result of this, these spaces will be very limited, and we encourage those persons who do not need a reserved to purchase a regular permit for the Spring 2022 semester.

All payments must be made on line on the parking site.  If you cannot make an online payment, please contact Andrea Pinnock in the Office of Campus Activities for further instructions.

If you have had parking privileges previously, your dual access ID will be programmed remotely.  Please be sure to include your correct CUNYfirst EMPLID on the online payment site since this is the unique identifier we will use to program your dual access ID card to grant access to the parking lot. After programming, you will be notified via email from the Office of Campus Activities that your parking decal is ready for pickup in Shuster Hall room 078. To obtain your decal, you will be required to show your parking permit receipt and current identification card at the time of pick-up.  If you already have a Lehman ID and not a dual access card, the Office of Campus Activities will issue one to you at the time of pick up and program it at that time.  

If you do not have an ID card, you will need to first contact the Office Public Safety at 718-960-8593 for information on how to obtain one since this is required for parking privileges. All 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.

Please note that all current  parking permits expire on  December 31, 2021 and you  will not be able to park in any of the college  lots after this date  without a new decal.  For this reason, we urge everyone in need of a Spring permit to purchase one as soon as possible and prior to December 31st.

Reserved parking permit holders can only purchase their permits after they have been notified that they have been approved for a reserved space for the FY Spring 2022 academic semester. Please see the following section for specific information pertaining to reserved parking.

Reserved Parking Permits

As indicated, reserve parking permits for the Spring Semester will be very limited due to the continued closure of the Science Lot.  On account of this most persons requesting reserved parking will be assigned to the Paul Avenue lot given the limited availability in the South lot. To request a reserved parking space, you will need to submit the attached Reserve Request Form documenting that your position at Lehman requires a need for reserved parking. Generally, this means that your job requires you to enter and exit the campus during the day. If you are interested in being considered for reserved parking you must submit the completed form to Business.Office@lehman.cuny.edu  as soon as possible and no later than Wednesday, December 8, 2021.  Please do not pay for your parking decal until you have been notified that you have received reserved parking.

Please note, that there is no guarantee that you will receive reserved parking during the Spring 2022 semester even if you had a space in previous years. There is also no guarantee you will receive your preferred lot or space number. We will try our best to accommodate as many requests as possible but given the current circumstances we ask for everyone’s understanding and patience as we navigate through this. If you are unhappy with your lot assignment you will have the opportunity to purchase a regular unreserved space in the faculty-staff lot.

The parking permit rate structure remains unchanged from previous years. The rate for the annual parking permit is $185.

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.
