     For retired Faculty and Staff, the assignment of parking privileges will be at the discretion of Parking Services.

b)  Faculty and Staff whose Parking Stall or lot is closed in accordance with Section 12.5.8 or whose assigned work has been transferred to another zone of the Campus may transfer to another location with equivalent facilities if available.  When more than one member is transferred at the same time, priority for available parking will be given on the basis of years of service at the University.  Those not receiving equivalent assignment at that time will be given top priority for reassignment.

c)  Parking for Faculty and Staff who are going on a leave of absence will have parking reassigned to them on their return.  If they require their stall during their leave, they must request retaining the stall at the time of the leave.  All parking privileges revert to Parking Services during leaves.  Written notification prior to leave and prior to return are required by Parking Services.

     Should the lot or stall be taken out of service during the leave, the member will be given priority in obtaining an equivalent stall or lot as if not on leave and according to the years of service at the University
