LEV Preferred Parking
In August 2009 the University announced a new preferred parking program for Low Emitting Vehicles (LEVs). Over 50 spaces are available in five lots on campus for qualifying low emitting vehicles. These spaces are marked with special signage and are open to faculty, staff and graduate students. More information about the LEV Preferred Parking program can be found here.
Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
There are currently seven electric vehicle charging stations on campus. Five of those stations are for use by the university fleet and the other two are available for use by the Notre Dame community. Public charging stations can be found at:
- Joyce Lot near lamppost 7
- Library Lot near Leahy Drive
Zipcar is the world’s leading car-sharing service. Zipcars are available 24/7 to all students, faculty, and staff members, ages 18 and older. The option of renting a high-efficiency and low-cost Zipcar encourages students on campuses across the country to leave their cars at home during the school year.
Notre Dame purchased four Smart Cars in August 2010. One of the high-efficiency cars is used by Mail Services to replace a standard sedan, while the other three are used by the Development offices in Eddy Street Commons. The Smart Car is one of the most economical cars on the U.S. roads today, with an average of 33 mpg for city driving and 41 mpg on the highway. It is classified as an ultra-low emissions vehicle. The Smart Cars will contribute to improving the University Fleet’s average fuel efficiency.

Why travel when you can WebEx?
OIT provides video and web conferencing to the faculty, staff and students at ND. Conference participants can see each other via webcams, view the same powerpoint presentation on their computers, and even work together on the same documents in real-time. Recent teleconferences have connected those here on campus with colleagues across the globe, from Sweden to Antarctica. Check out the campus facilities and learn more about the Webex program. Fees are modest and vastly cheaper than flying. Best of all, teleconferencing reduces your carbon footprint the carbon emissions you are avoiding can be summed up on the WebEx calculator.
