Students living in Smith, Carolina, the International Pavilion, Honors Pavilion, Hook, Brannock and Barney currently pay $160 a year for on-campus parking. The change would decrease parking passes for these residents by $20.
Students living in Chandler, Colclough, Maynard, Staley, Moffit, West, Virginia and Sloan currently pay $80 a year for on-campus parking. Next year, students in these residents halls will pay $100 for a parking pass.
Currently, residents with $80 passes pay less because they must move their cars during football game days. According to Junior Class President Sam Warren, these students only move their cars five to six times a year, only in the first half of Fall semester.
Elon Campus Safety and Police Chief Chuck Gantos has already approved the changes. Currently, commuter students and residents in the Oaks and Danieley Center will not be affected by the parking legislation.
The legislation passed with a vote of 26-7-0.
