Faculty / Staff Parking
All faculty and staff must present vehicle registrations and current GWORLD Identification Cards before decals will be issued. Arrangements for an employee's parking cannot be made by another staff member or by a department. Parking decals cannot be sent through the mail.
Parking privileges should be cancelled at the beginning or end of the month. You must complete a termination form in the Faculty Staff Service Center to stop payroll deductions. Faculty members who do not wish to have parking privileges during the summer months or while on sabbatical, must follow procedures to cancel parking as outline in the Faculty & Staff Parking brochure.
Personnel in a Leave of Absence or Leave Without Pay status (LOA/LWOP). When an employee is placed in a LOA/LWOP status, regardless of the reason, it is the employee's responsibility to contact the Faculty Staff Service Center to the beginning of the leave period. The processing of personnel forms does not complete this process. If an employee fails to cancel parking, accrued payments will be applied upon return from LOA/LWOP for the period in which no payroll deductions were made. No exceptions will be made regarding collection of fees due upon return from leave. Employees who cancel their parking will be given first priority on the waiting list if a space is not available upon return.
Retirement Personnel who are retiring during the academic term and have payroll deductions for parking should notify the Faculty and Staff Service Center prior to retirement.
Current parkers with a Disability Tag or Placard will either be permitted to remain in their current parking location or will be relocated to the closest available on-campus parking facility with designated handicapped parking spaces if they meet the requirements noted in the policy for accommodations. Disabled parkers should submit documentation of their Disabled Tag or Placard to the Office of EEO to ensure compliance with the current request process outlined below.
Alternatively, if you are managing a medical condition that requires accommodation under the protections of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) you need to process your request for accommodation through the Office of EEO and HR Policy Compliance. To obtain the appropriate request forms please got the HR website athttp://www.gwu.edu/hr/eeo/forms.html. Click on the “ADA and Religious” request form, complete it and turn it in to the Office of EEO and HR Policy Compliance processing. This completed form along with the release of information form will be kept confidential; the only copy will remain at the EEO Office (not in the transportation and parking office or with your supervisor). The release for information is required to contact your attending physician; who must validate your need for accommodations. If accommodations are granted, EEO will contact the Office of Transportation and Parking on your behalf in order to provide the approved accommodations.
