On behalf of the faculty, staff, and administration, we warmly welcome you to Blinn College. As we anticipate heavy traffic during the first weeks of the semester, we need your help to make sure the start of the semester goes smoothly for you and your fellow classmates. For our first-time students on the Bryan campus, please understand that parking is limited and spots fill quickly. We know the start of a new semester brings challenges. We appreciate your patience.
New for the 2015-16 academic year!
Beginning this Fall, Blinn will introduce 150 Pay-By-Space spaces to provide speedy and convenient parking for students and employees. These specially-designated spaces will be located in Parking Lot E near the G Building and in Parking Lot J near Modular 1 (map). Marked with appropriate signage and yellow parking stripes, these specially-designated spaces will cost $2 per hour for the first two hours and $1 every half hour after that. Patrons can conveniently pay at the nearby kiosks.
Many universities, including Texas A&M, utilize this system and have found that Pay-By-Space lots increase turnover, allowing more vehicles to use these spaces over the course of the day, and provide an affordable alternative to parking permits for part-time students. The improved enforcement of campus parking regulations will improve our customer service and ensure that students with permits have access to parking.
As part of this summer’s campus renovation, Blinn has added approximately 150 new parking spaces, so the new pay-as-you-go spots won’t reduce the number of permit spaces and will actually create more available spaces throughout the day!
Drivers to the Bryan campus are strongly encouraged to take the following steps:
- Utilize the Texas A&M University bus shuttle (Reveille - Route 12), which delivers riders to the heart of campus approximately every 15 minutes - free with a valid Blinn ID.
- Consider carpooling or riding a bike. Bicycle racks are available throughout the campus.
If you drive:
- Get a parking permit
- Arrive an hour before class begins
- Avoid parking in restricted areas. Parking on nearby city streets is allowed only in designated
areas. Bryan Police will strictly enforce the posted parking signage.
All students parking a vehicle on Blinn College Campuses must register their vehicles and purchase a vehicle parking permit before parking a vehicle on campus. Parking permits will only be issued to the student. Please refer to the following website for vehicle and parking permit registration information. http://www.blinn.edu/parking/index.htm
Blinn College parking permits must be displayed as follows:
Summer 2015: Exterior Sticker - on the outside of the vehicle’s back window in the lower left corner
Fall 2015: Interior Decal - on the inside, in the lower right corner (passenger side) of the front windshield (opposite of the vehicle inspection sticker)
Students MUST park according to the permit issued, and are NOT permitted to park in Reserved, Numbered or Visitor spaces.
The registered owner of the permit is responsible for all parking citations incurred when utilizing the permit for compliance with Blinn College parking policies. Parking and traffic regulations are in effect at all times. The parking citation fine per violation is $40.00. Multiple violations may be assessed on one citation. Vehicles may be subject to towing.
Parking permits are NOT transferable to any other person or vehicle. Report stolen or vandalized parking permits to Campus Police and Enrollment Services as soon as possible. Possession of a stolen permit is grounds for disciplinary action.
