Auxiliary Services to re-distribute incorrect parking permits

During the inaugural use of the new online parking permit
system, some commuter students ran into some issues, including permits for the wrong lots. Shortly after going online,
the Parking Services' permit store, now a function under
the Student Services tab on the MyXU Portal, posted a message stating that "print production delays" would defer parking permit shipments up to thirty days. In the meantime, the Office of Auxiliary Services suggested that students print out and display temporary permits. A few weeks later, some commuter students began receiving passes for the Commons
Apartments instead of the commuter lots. "It's an isolated, first-year issue," Jon Beres, assistant director of Auxiliary Services said. "The important thing is that the issue is resolved and we are doing everything we can to make sure that students receive their correct passes." Beres estimated that about ten percent of Xavier University's commuting population received parking permits to the Commons Apartments in error,
and that students who have yet to receive their correct passes should expect to have them in the next seven to ten days.
The switch to online orders occured in the same year that
the Office of Auxiliary Services took control of Parking Services from Xavier Police. Administrators anticipated that the change, several years in the making, would give students greater freedom in conducting parking-related business, including ordering passes and adding parents' cars to permits. Despite the setbacks, Beres highlighted that the online system
works. "I hope students appreciate the convenience of online management," he said. The Office of Auxiliary Services requested in an e-mail that students receiving parking permits in error return the incorrect passes to their office in the Musketeer Mezzanine in Fenwick Place.
