The price of parking permits for the University of Eastern Finland’s campuses is revised from 1 September. Due to the coronavirus situation, the prices of both annual and monthly parking permits will be reduced; however, parking permit fees from the past spring will not be refunded. A new permit for charging electrical and hybrid cars is also introduced.
Parking fees from 1 September 2020 onwards:
– permanent staff permit: 111 euros/12 months and 12 euros/month (previously 123 euros/year and 17 euros/month)
– permanent student permit: 90 euros/12 months and 10 euros/month (previously 100 euros/year and 13 euros/month)
– permanent permit for a parking space with electricity (staff) 171 euros/12 months and 32 euros/month (previously 190 euros/year and 34 euros / month) November–March
– EV charging station permit 160 euros/year + 0.10 euros/kWh according to usage, or 13 euros/month + 0.10 euros/kWh according to usage.
Staff and students can reserve parking permits for the parking areas via the eParking.fi system.
Short-term guest parking costs 1 euros/hour, but will not exceed 6 euros/day. Short-term parking can be paid at the payment machine or as a mobile payment.
Electrical and hybrid cars can be charged at Type2 charging stations and from schuko electrical sockets available in eTolppa charging stations, 8A (slow charging). eTolppa charging stations are also suitable for block heaters. The use of charging stations is subject to a fee also in June–August.
There are plans to increase the number of EV charging stations on the campuses in the upcoming years. A new EV charging station and eTolppa charging stations will be introduced to Joensuu in connection with expanding the P14 parking area on Yliopistokatu 7. Currently, EV charging stations can be found in Joensuu in the parking areas P4 and P5 on Tulliportinkatu and at Rantakylä Teacher Training School. In Kuopio, EV charging stations are available in the parking area P1 at Melania.
