UConn Travel Policy – 2b. PARKING AT BRADLEY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Procedure Prior to Travel:
To obtain a parking permit, the traveler must use the Travel WebForm which you can get here; UConn Travel by clicking on travel forms. After the Travel WebForm is submitted, a parking permit will be mailed if the departure is greater than 5 business days away. Travelers that are departing sooner than 5 business days may pick up their parking permits at the front desk of the Office of Travel Services; provided the pre-trip portion of the Travel WebForm has been completed. It is the traveler’s responsibility to obtain the parking pass before departure. Travelers should review and follow the instructions and information printed on the permit prior to parking.
At the Airport: The employee must present the parking permit to the attendant when they exit the state employee designated parking lot. If the state-designated lot is at capacity, travelers should park at the lowest-cost economy parking lot.
After travel: To receive reimbursement if the state-designated lot was at capacity or if the traveler incurs any charge for parking for a period greater than fourteen days, the traveler must submit the paid receipt and the original parking permit with a brief explanation in the “Remarks” section of the Travel WebForm. Those picking up arriving University travelers(including, on rare instances, graduate students) may submit paid parking receipts for reimbursement.
