Electric Vehicle Charging & Parking

Please note: Due to the closure of the Library Lot, the EV chargers are being relocated to the Fischer Faculty/Staff parking lot.  Until the relocation is complete, please use the EV chargers located in the Joyce Parking lot (near post 14).  Updates of when the chargers are ready for use will be posted here.

Notre Dame has electric vehicle charging stations on campus available to university staff, faculty, and students. The stations, paired in the Joyce Lot near lamppost 14 provide electricity to charge fully electric as well as hybrid plug-in vehicles such as the Chevy Volt, Toyota Prius EV, Tesla Model S and Nissan Leaf.  

Ev Charging Station1

A valid Notre Dame parking permit and ID are required to receive a special EV parking permit.  Permits need to be renewed at the beginning of each academic year. For the 2022-23 academic year, we are waiving all renewal fee expenses of the EV parking decal permit. 

Please note that only vehicles which must be plugged in to charge, including fully electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids, are eligible for this decal. The decal gives you access to the campus charging infrastructure and Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) parking spots, though the LEV program is under review and subject to change in the future.

Whether applying for a new EV parking decal or submitting a renewal, please fill out the Google form linked here. In addition to the form submission, please follow up by sending the Office of Sustainability an image of your vehicle's registration.

Once your documentation has been processed, we will send your 2022-23 EV parking decal to you. 

As a reminder, the following are elements of the EV Parking Policy:

  1. Parking in electrical charging stalls is restricted to vehicles plugged in for charging.
  2. Electric Vehicle charging stations are available on a first-come-first-served basis.  If the charging space is occupied,
  3. We ask that you NOT unplug another vehicle so that you can plug your vehicle in.
  4. In order to use the University's EV charging stations, you must display a Notre Dame EV sticker on the inside, lower corner of the driver's side front windshield.
  5. Charging of electric vehicles is limited to a 4-hour period per 24-hour window.  The time limit on all EV parking stalls will be monitored and enforced by NDSP.
  6. Please email the Office of Sustainability regarding any EV charger that is out of service.

Etiquette for shared/limited EV charging equipment:

  1. Don't charge your vehicle if you don't need to.  Please leave the spot available for another EV driver that may need the charge.
  2. Only occupy a charging spot while your car is being charged.  When your charging session is completed, unplug and move your vehicle.
  3. DO NOT unplug another vehicle so that you can plug your vehicle in.
  4. Please be kind and wind the cord neatly, placing it back on the charger to prevent anyone from tripping.

Due to current supply chain related capacity restrictions, only Notre Dame faculty, students, and staff who have a valid Electric Vehicle Decal and parking hang tag displayed may charge a vehicle on campus. If you are a visitor to the area, off-campus charging resources are available and can be located with this link. Visitor charging resources may change as the campus infrastructure undergoes updates.
