(Aug. 16, 2010)--If you haven't ordered your UTSA parking permit, now is the time to place your order online -- last year's permits expire Friday, Aug. 20. Parking permits must be ordered online. The benefits are no waiting in long lines and the convenience of ordering the permit online.
>> Order your permit 24/7 by logging on to the ASAP information system.
Permits are mailed to the residence address that the purchaser lists on the online application. Because a vendor mails the permit directly to the purchaser, allow three to five working days to receive it.
UTSA permit buyers can print a dashboard permit beginning Aug. 15 (valid for seven days) at the completion of the online order. While the student, faculty member or staff member awaits the arrival of their hangtag permit by U.S. mail, the dashboard permit will allow them to park on campus without the worry of ticketing.
Business Auxiliary Services now offers Visa as a payment option. Students who have registered for fall classes can purchase permits by Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover credit card or e-check. Students also can add the permit fee to their Tuition and Fee bills.
Faculty and staff members have the option of payroll deduction on a pre-tax or post-tax basis. For payroll deduction, the FY 2011 permit cost is divided into monthly payroll deductions beginning in October 2010. Deductions for permit purchases will continue until the full price of the permit is paid or until the permit is returned.
As another choice, faculty and staff members can use the Main Campus South Parking Garage on an hourly basis and avoid waiting in line to pay by using a Fast Pass. Purchase a Fast Pass at Business Auxiliary Services in Multidisciplinary Studies Building Room 1.01.52 or the South Garage office for a minimum of $20, and add funds to the card in $10 increments as needed. Parking fees are deducted when you swipe the card to leave the garage.
UTSA Business Auxiliary Services manages parking, transportation, dining and catering, bookstore, vending, copier and UTSACard services with the goal of providing the highest level of quality, value, innovation and excellence for UTSA students, faculty, staff and visitors.
UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.
That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.
Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
