Library Survey Response: Answers To Your Questions

LibQual Survey FAQs

Do I have to pay for parking at the library?

Because parking is limited, all students, faculty, staff, and visitors are required to pay for parking on UAA’s main campus during peak hours.

During peak hours, which are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 am – 7:30 pm, parking can be paid for in the following ways:

  • UAA PERMITS: UAA Students, faculty and staff can purchase a semester (fall, spring, summer) or a year-long parking permit from The Permit Store.
  • APU PERMITS: Vehicles with a valid APU parking permit can park in the lots directly next to the library on the east and north side of the building. Note that APU parking permits are not valid for other parking lots on the UAA campus.
  • FULL DAY PASSES: Library patrons can purchase a full day pass at the Pay and Park machines located in the open parking lots (and in the library’s East lot) or they can purchase an unlimited number of full day passes in advance at the Consortium Library main Circulation Desk. Full day passes cost $10 and are good in any of the lots and garages on campus.
  • HOURLY PASSES: Library patrons can purchase parking by the hour at any of the Pay and Park machines located in the University’s open lots (and in the library’s East lot). The hourly rate is $2 per hour up to 5 hours.
  • PASSPORT APP: Download the Passport App and pay on-the-go using your smartphone. If you don't have a smartphone, you can still pay-by-phone by calling (907) 341-4170. You can pay by the hour or by the day, and you must have a valid credit or debit card. Each transaction includes a $0.20 convenience fee.

Parking is free on the main campus anytime Friday through Sunday; Monday through Thursday evenings after 7:30pm; during the interim period between semesters; and on holidays when there are no UAA classes. For more information on parking options visit the UAA Parking Services website.
