Pay parking will be introduced to the Joensuu and Kuopio campuses of the University of Eastern Finland as of 1 September 2018. Parking permits issued earlier (e.g. green parking permits issued for students) are no longer valid when the pay parking will be introduced.
Pay parking will be enforced from September to May on weekdays between 7 am to 4 pm. At other times, parking on the university campuses is free of charge.
Parking permit reservations can be made from 1 August onwards at eparking.fi. More information about the service is available on the website, and the customer care contact details can also be found there. Staff members and students log in to the eParking service by using their UEF usernames and passwords (HAKA login).
The price of a permanent student parking permit is 90 euros/12 months. The price of a fixed-term student parking permit is 12 euros/month. A student parking permit entitles to parking in areas reserved for student parking. Short-term parking costs 1 euros/hour, but will not exceed 6 euros/day.
Parking permits with a 12 month invoice interval are permanent and can be renewed by paying the invoice by the deadline. Information about an outstanding invoice will be sent by email. Short-term parking can be paid at the payment machine or as a mobile payment.
Staff and student parking permits can also be extended to the other campus.
Parking permits are tied to the vehicle registration plate and are vehicle-specific. The parking permit can be set as “active” for one registration number at a time, but you can change the active registration number on your permit as often as you need to if you have multiple vehicles. You can change your registration number or set a new one on the eParking website or using the mobile app.
