LOW EMISSION & ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Low Emissions Vehicles (LEV)



Priority parking spaces designated specifically for low emissions vehicles (LEV) are available in these campus locations:

  • ❖ Lot 1 near Jefferson Suites
  • ❖ Gray Drive
  • ❖ West Drive
  • ❖ Library Service Drive

To park in LEV permit spaces, your vehicle must qualify and you must have a valid UNCG parking permit for the designated permit type. To park in LEV metered spaces, your vehicle must quality and you must pay the meter — 25 cents per 15 minutes.


The vehicle list compiled by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy decides what qualifies as a low emissions vehicle. This list is also utilized by the US Green Building Council to determine qualifying alternative transportation programs for LEED credit.

Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs)



Electric vehicle charging stations are located inside both the Oakand Avenue and McIver Parking Decks.


  • Oakland Deck Location
    Level 1, in the southwest corner near the Kenilworth Street entry gates. In this location, there are: five 110 volt, 20amp standard outlets and four 30amp J1772 GE faster charging stations (8 hour time limit).
  • McIver Deck Location
    Level 1, in the southeast corner near the McIver Street entrance. There are: four ClipperCreek level 2 charging stations with a 4 hour time limit.


What if I don’t have a McIver or Oakland Deck permit?

You can pay by the hour to park in either deck and use the charging stations. If you have a valid UNCG permit and a registered EV (electrical vehicle) you will be able to get one complimentary deck exit pass and have the option to purchase up to three daily discount exit passes for either the Oakland or McIver Deck ($3 each), per calendar month. You can register your EV by filling out this form.


Charging stations are reserved for plug-in electric vehicles during active charging sessions. Time limits are strictly enforced. Once a vehicle is fully charged, it must be moved so other vehicles can access the charging stations. Students and employees with the proper deck permits may utilize the charging stations without paying additional fees. The visitor parking rate is $2 the first hour, $1 each additional hour.


The projects are the result of a student initiative with support from the UNCG Green Fund. Thanks to the Triad Electric Vehicle Association (TEVA)Strong College, UNCGreen and the Office of Sustainability for ongoing support in promoting these charging stations.
