uWindsor faculty, students criticize parking rate hikes

May 29, 2009

In order to cope with a multimillion-dollar deficit, the University of Windsor will increase the cost of an 8-month faculty and staff parking permit by 60%, and a student permit by 30%, a move that is drawing criticism from both professors and students. The president of the university's faculty association says there are plans to quadruple the amount that faculty are paying now for parking in 3 or 4 years. He says professors likely wouldn't have objected to incremental increases in parking permit fees, but the 60% hike is "outrageous." uWindsor Daily News | Windsor Star
