Message regarding the End of the Semester for on campus students from Parking Services – Fall 2017

The College of Charleston’s Office of Parking Services has partnered with the offices of New Student Programs, Public Safety, and Residence Life so that we can provide convenient parking for the families of students moving out of residence halls for the holiday break. (Although students are not required to move out all of their belongings for this break, we want to provide reasonable parking options to make it easier to move out the items that they plan on taking with them when they leave for the holidays.)

 

Be advised that any street parking other than metered spaces will be ticketed by The College of Charleston and/or the City of Charleston. Parking on streets in areas that are not designated as parking areas restricts traffic flow and creates safety concerns for both pedestrians and other vehicles. Leaving someone to stand guard at a vehicle that is parked on the street OR parking on the street with hazard lights flashing will not prevent that vehicle from being ticketed.

 

SURFACE LOT AVAILABILITY

 

Selected surface lots that will be available for move-out on the dates and times provided below the following list:

  • G Lot (close to Buist-Rivers; please note that you cannot park in a space that is marked as “handicap accessible” or “Residence Hall Director”)
  • BS Lot (close to Bull Street historic houses; please note that you cannot park in a space that is marked as “RHD”)
  • I Lot (close to McConnell; CofC marked spaces only)
  • P Lot (close to McConnell and Wentworth Street historic and fraternity houses)
  • WP Lot (close to Warren Place and Kelley House; also fairly close to Berry and McAlister; please note that you cannot park in a space that is marked as “Service Vehicle” or “RHD”)
  • W Lot (behind 298-300 Meeting St.; please note that you cannot park in a space that is marked as “RHD”)

 

We will not be ticketing the selected surface lots listed above during the following timeframes ONLY:

Tuesday 12/5/2017 from 5 PM until 9 PM

Wednesday 12/6/2017 from 5 PM until 9 PM

Thursday 12/7/2017 from 5 PM until 9 PM

Friday 12/8/2017 from 5 PM until 9 PM

Saturday 12/9/2017 from 12 PM until 5 PM

Sunday 12/10/2017 from 1 PM until 5 PM

Monday 12/11/2017 from 5 PM until 9 PM

Tuesday 12/12/2017 from 5 PM until 9 PM

Wednesday 12/13/2017 from 5 PM until 9 PM

Thursday 12/14/2017 from 5 PM until 9 PM

 

For exact locations of these surface parking lots, please consult the College of Charleston – Parking Map. Printed copies of the map are available at Parking Services or Public Safety.

 

These are the only surface lots that will be available, and they will only be available during the timeframes provided above. Exams do not officially end until 12/13/2017, and students and employees with permits for these lots will still need access to their spaces while other students are moving out. Even if a lot appears to have several available spaces, it will be ticketed; the only exceptions are in the lots listed above during the designated timeframes.

 

 

GARAGE PARKING

 

For students who are moving out at times when there will not be surface lot availability, or for students whose residence halls are closest to the PG or WG garages, we will offer complimentary two-hour garage parking for one vehicle per student. Please read the following information very carefully:

 

  • Upon request students will be provided with one 2-hour parking voucher for either PG Garage or WG Garage. For exact locations of these garages, please consult the College of Charleston – Parking Map. PG Garage is convenient to Warren Place, Kelly House, Berry, and McAlister. WG Garage is convenient to the George and Liberty apartments, the Wentworth Street historic houses, and the Wentworth Street fraternity houses. WG is reasonably close to McConnell and Craig.
  • Garage parking vouchers will be available at the Parking Services office beginning on Tuesday, 12/5/2017, and must be picked up during business hours (Monday through Friday; 9 AM – 4:30 PM). A valid Cougar Card must be presented in order to receive your garage parking voucher. (Public Safety will have a limited supply of garage parking vouchers if you need to pick one up after 4:30 PM.)
  • Garage vouchers may be redeemed at almost*any time of day (see below for details) between 12/5/2017 and 12/14/2017. Garage vouchers will represent the only parking option to students who plan on moving out on a weekday prior to 5 PM. (*The PG Garage is not staffed 24/7, but there is usually a cashier on duty on weekdays between the hours of 7 AM and 7 PM and on weekends between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM. Unfortunately, vouchers cannot be presented when there is not a cashier on duty. In order to avoid normal exit fees for two hours of parking, we recommend that you park at a metered space if you will be leaving campus when the cashier is not on duty. WG Garage is staffed until at least midnight each night.)
  • There is a strict two-hour time limit on the parking garage vouchers, so please have all belongings packed and ready to go before you begin moving them out. If time parked exceeds two hours, patrons will be responsible for paying the additional fees.
  • You must retain the ticket that you pulled upon entering the garage in order to be eligible for the two hours of free parking. You must present both the ticket and the voucher to the cashier in order to be eligible for the two hours of free parking. Vouchers are not intended for multiple uses and must be surrendered to the cashier in order to take advantage of the two hours of free parking.
  • The garage on St. Philip Street next to CVS is convenient to the George and Liberty apartments and Craig. However, this is a City of Charleston garage, sowe cannot offer free parking in this garage. Students and their families are welcome to park in this garage, but they will have to pay the full amount due upon exiting the garage.

 

Please feel free to call Parking Services at 843.953.7834 or email parkingservices@cofc.edu if you have any questions.

CofC Alternative Spring Break participant applications available

The Center for Civic Engagement is now accepting Alternative Spring Break participant applications! Applications are due on November 8th at 5:00PM in the Center for Civic Engagement (Lightsey 203).

Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a transformative experiential learning opportunity where students spend their academic breaks addressing critical issues such as affordable housing, LGBTQ+ Rights, environmental protection, civil rights, and sustainability in different communities throughout the country. Alternative Break is a great opportunity  for students who are interested in making a difference in the world. Additionally, ASB is a great opportunity to build your resume. According to Dr. Chris Spera, CNCS’s Director of Research & Evaluation and one of the authors of the report “Volunteering as a Pathway to Employment,” active volunteers were 27% more likely to get a job than non-volunteers.

This year there will be 5 trips with students traveling across the United States:

  • Cultivating Common Ground: Environmental Justice and Mindfulness, Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center | Washburn, TN
  • Constructing Relationships and Building Compassion: Affordable and Sustainable Housing, Habitat for Humanity | Asheville, NC
  • Water Resources and Sustainability, Chesapeake Bay Foundation | Annapolis, MD
  • LGBT+ Rights and Public Health, Gay Men’s Health Crisis Center | New York, NY
  • Civil Rights and the Arts, Selma Center for Nonviolence | Selma, AL

*Please note that there are a limited number of spots on each trip and participants may not get their first choice.

Meetings will be held on select Wednesday nights November-April with immersion trip occurring March 17-March 24, 2018. Interested candidates should review the application thoroughly to ensure that they can meet the required qualifications. All trips cost $300. Financial aid is available.

For questions and additional information on the Alternative Break program please contact cofc.alternativebreak@gmail.com or Christopher Ciarcia, Associate Director of the Center for Civic Engagement at ciarciac@cofc.edu.
