Parking Guidance for Universities & Education

Dynamic parking solutions for educators, students and staff

Students, professors, teachers, alumnus, visitors and staff all have one thing in common – they are trying to get to their campus destination on time. With a great number of college campuses built where parking is limited by design or location, these people are forced to search for spots.

By guiding people to open spots, ParkHelp improves the parking experience – eliminating the frustrations and delays. Any, by decreasing emissions, parking has less of an impact on the environment.

CASE STUDY:

University & Education

Overview:
When you are a commuter school with close to 6,000 students, ease and availability of parking is crucial to the daily functioning of your university.

Strategy:

Introduce a parking system to the existing parking facilities that reduces time spent searching for a space and reduces the carbon footprint produced in the garages. Also, the parking system has to improve the daily user experience in order to increase revenue from campus parking usage.

Customers Who Trust ParkHelp

“Tenant retention is probably double…. Very few were lost after the improvements were there because very few buildings have all the amenities and sophistication. The property was actually better than brand-new because they never had that kind of parking advantage before.” 

Director of CBRE Global Investors - Galleria Dallas

“At many of the other parking facilities [on the property], the parking systems are turned off. The gate arms are up, they don’t operate because they might be closed when they ought to be open, so they just turn them off and leave the gates up. Or they’re on, and everybody knows that the car counts are wrong.” 

Project Manager - Walter Reed Medical Center

“Ultimately, it was worth the wait, the parking industry is a very fast-paced business. We had to find a system that would keep up with (or a step ahead of) continuously evolving parking technology and would not be outdated by the time all of the systems were installed.” 

Senior Director of Countywide Parking Management - LA Metro

“We’re trying to make it more efficient, providing more information for them instead of driving around and around looking for a space, we’d rather have them studying and enjoying the student life.” 

Associate Vice Chancellor of Facilities - University of Washington Bothell

“The reason we decided to install a metering system is that we only have space for about 327 cars, and we have at least 700 employees. People would drive around the garage not knowing if there were any spots available. We incorporated a display board which is right by our main entrance to notify if the garage is full. It did solve the issue that we had.” 

Construction Supervisor - Howard Hughes Medical Institute

“Accuracy is critical… because, as a military medical facility, there are so many handicapped people who come to the medical center. Being able to know exactly where the handicapped spots are is really useful.” 

Project Manager - Walter Reed Medical Center

“This project will accomplish every business objective we had for the project.” 

Design & Construction Project Manager - American Express

“It gets them inside quicker. They get to spend more time inside the property. It’s a better guest experience. We want to give them the best guest experience possible. If they had to ride around the garage looking for a spot, that wouldn’t be a good experience.”

VP, Facilities and Engineering - Pachenga Casino

“This system is more accurate. The other systems are not telling you the truth. If you see a sign out there that says there are 22 spaces available, there might only be two spaces available. They don’t count the cars in and out as accurately as this one does partially because this system is more wireless and is available to monitor better because you don’t have to have as much physical infrastructure.”
