Retirees are eligible for free parking in Lots K, P and Z or any of the overflow lots. Retirees should go directly to Transportation Services’ Faculty/Staff Parking Office, located in the ground floor of the Regents Drive Garage (Bldg 202). To pick up their parking permit, they must bring their Retiree ID Card. For more information call (301)314-7199.
Retiree ID card
Retirees may receive a new ID card that displays their “Retiree” or “Emeritus” status, as appropriate. Active emeriti faculty are automatically set up to receive a new ID card. For all other retirees, the retiree’s department enters the retiree into the Affiliates module of PHR, indicating their retiree status.
To pick up their new ID card, a retiree goes to the Office of the Registrar – 1st floor Mitchell Building and exchanges their current ID card for a new ID card. (Note: For retirees entered into the Affiliates module of PHR, data will be available to the ID card Office on the business day following entry of the record.)
Retirees can keep the same ID picture if they like or they can receive a new id picture. ID cards do not display titles.
The ID card allows retiree to:
• Join the Campus Recreation Center for a fee.
• Receive discounts at the campus bookstore.
• Use library privileges.
• Receive discounts to Clarice Smith School for Performing Arts if over the age of 62.
• Use of the Wellness Center
• Use of the Shuttle
Active emeriti faculty are automatically set up to keep/activate an OIT email account. For all other faculty/staff, the department from which they retire is the deciding authority regarding obtaining an email account.
If the sponsoring department does not run their own email system, they can sponsor the non-emeriti retiree for an OIT email account via the Affiliates module of PHR. For more information about sponsorship, retirees should contact their department. If the retiree is approved for OIT email, questions about email activation should be directed to the OIT Help Desk at (301) 405-1500.
