A Fall Like No Other
Universities across the country are preparing for fall, and a long-awaited return to normalcy. With zoom fatigue looming large and students eager for socialization, many are looking forward to the fall 2021 semester. But college campuses have been closed for over a year. That means that an unprecedented half of the incoming student body will be heading to campuses they aren’t familiar with. College parking that was challenging before will be doubly so. How can you streamline the process before fall’s arrival?
Campus Parking Guidance
You provide your students with educational guidance but how about parking guidance? As cars enter your campus each morning, chaos can ensue. But it doesn’t have to. With surges of students coming and going throughout the day, finding parking in time for class can be challenging. Especially in the fall of 2021, with so many students new to your campus, college parking will be particularly challenging. But parking guidance can make the difference between chaos and calm.
What is Parking Guidance?
Parking guidance is the process of keeping track of available parking spaces via sensors and sharing that data with drivers. Traditional parking guidance systems involve wiring a sensor into every spot. This process is lengthy and expensive- and not something you want to undertake in addition to the many hurdles of reopening. OpenSpace from Parking Logix makes college parking guidance a lot simpler. OpenSpace is an innovative parking guidance system that provides over 99% accuracy without installing a single sensor into a parking space. Sensors are installed at entry and exit points for a simpler, more intuitive system that doesn’t compromise on accuracy.
Sharing Data with Students
Keeping count of available parking spots on your campus is a great first step. But how do you share that data? Parking Logix offers customized signage wherever you think drivers need to see it. You can display the number of available spots in each of your lots right at the entrance to your campus. You can show parking availability outside of each campus parking lot or garage. And you can make that data available on your website, school app, or parking apps using our API integration. Parking Logix is here to help you get students back to campus smoothly and safely. Try OpenSpace and streamline the post-pandemic back-to-school experience.
