Parking rates increase this fall. This is the first increase in 14 years, and funds will be used for deferred maintenance of parking structures and parking lots. The increase was approved by the Parking and Transportation Services committee, whose membership includes faculty, staff and students, and has been approved by university leadership to begin Sept. 1, 2021. Currently, Mizzou’s rates are some of the lowest in the Southeast Conference and the lowest among our Midwest university peers. Even with increased rates, Mizzou will continue to offer among the lowest.
Revenue from permit sales pays for deferred maintenance of parking structures and lots. Increasing permit prices will allow Mizzou Parking to address $26 million in deferred maintenance over the next 10 years.
You may view the presentation for more information about Mizzou Parking and the new plan. We appreciate the community’s understanding that maintenance of lots and structures is necessary to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors.
