Colonial Cash for Daily/Occasional Parking
Daily Parking Debit Card
Use your GWorld Card as a debit card to park your vehicle.
How does the program work? Faculty, staff and students will be able to use their GWorld Card to park. First, you must visit the GWorld office to open a Colonial Cash account (if you don't already have one) and transfer funds to your GWorld card. Cash, check, MasterCard and Visa are accepted at the GWorld Office.
Thereafter, you may visit the GWorld Web site to add money to your GWorld Card using a credit card or use one of the VTS (Value Transfer Station) machines located throughout campus.
If you are a faculty or staff, go to the Faculty & Staff Service Center (2121 Eye Street, 1st floor) to obtain a decal and learn about the available garages for debit parking. If you are student, go to Student Parking Services in Colonial Center in the Marvin Center (801 21st Street, ground floor) to obtain a decal and learn about the available garages for debit parking. Please be aware of the following rules:
Pulling a Ticket vs. Card Swipe
If you pull a ticket to enter and the issue is not resolved prior to exiting, you will be required to pay the posted daily rate with the ticket at the exit. If you feel there was an error on the part of the University, please email us at email@example.com
with detailsas to why you had to pull a ticket to enter the garage.
If you swipe your card and the arm gate does not rise, allow 15 seconds before trying your card again. If that does not work, then you may pull a ticket and immediately visit the FSSC or Student Parking Services so your card can be RESET.
Your parking debit card is setup on an IN/OUT SEQUENCE. The Office must check your card for the problem and if necessary, reset your card for a proper exit.
Negative Debit Balances
If you exit with a negative balance, you will not be allowed to re-enter unless funds have been added.
Once again, thank you for your participation in our customer service initiative. Enjoy the convenience of the program!
