For many university students, parking on campus can be a frustrating experience. Locating parking spots often causes stress and tardiness, both of which make learning
difficult. Universities can solve this by taking the initiative to use parking guidance to enhance the student parking experience. Moreover, safety on campus parking lots is an additional concern that shouldn’t be overlooked. Implementing parking guidance systems and safety solutions can significantly improve parking, and learning, for students. Parking Logix offers intuitive parking solutions that universities can quickly adopt and implement.
The Problem of Insufficient Parking
One of the most common complaints from university students is about the lack of sufficient parking spots. Students struggling with parking issues can be late for classes or exams, which can significantly impact their ongoing performance. In truth, most higher education institutions have enough parking for their students. But lots do tend to fill up and simply finding available parking can be a difficult experience.
The Issue of Safety in Parking Lots
Safety is another significant concern when it comes to university parking lots. Frequent pedestrian traffic, blind spots, and reckless, rushed driving can easily cause traffic crashes. A single accident can cause injury, litigation, and reputation damage. Ensuring safe parking areas by implementing parking safety solutions is essential for protecting students, property, and the university’s reputation.
Parking Guidance with OpenSpace
Parking Logix OpenSpace is an affordable parking counting system used by universities across the U.S. OpenSpace is a parking guidance system that counts available parking spots and notifies students where parking is available and when a lot is full.
The wireless system is easy to install and operate. It uses sensors to track and maintain a real-time count of available parking spots. The system shares data via customized LED signs mounted at each parking lot and/or at the entrance of your campus. Data can also be shared with students via your school’s website or app. OpenSpace is quick and simple to install and does not require any major disruptions to the parking lot infrastructure.
