Since the October 27th, 2021 article, more students at Memorial University of Newfoundland have come forward with parking issues.
A student states, “Me and my friends have been having a really difficult time with parking this semester with the people at the parking building being very rude and unhelpful with us. It wasn’t until we emailed Neha Bhutani (firstname.lastname@example.org) that we felt our issues were actually heard, and she helped us deal with our issues. I also recommend posting in the group MUN Students Come Together on Facebook to let other students know others are struggling too. When me and my friend went to the office for parking, we were told it was only us complaining, and it was our issue, not theirs. The machines here do not work and haven’t for some time.”
Emily Valerie Pearl Colbourne says, “They wouldn’t give me my keys once that was turned into them after I lost them out of my pocket.”
Julia Breen states, “I had the same issue and met with Neha Bhutani; she informed me that she would send on a message higher up about replacing the machines. Overall, she was extremely helpful! There are evening/weekend permits available; unfortunately, that is the only option we have right now as we have to wait for new machines. Also!! The machine on floor 2 of the parking garage across from the UC works most times!”
Jessica Marie Martin says, “I had the same issue in September by the new science building. I was so scared of getting a ticket that I put a sign on my dash and money on my wipers. I called and left a message at parking, and no one did anything or called me back.”
