EV Chargers Installed in Chicago Parking Garages

Working with sustainNU, Transportation & Parking, is excited to announce that new EV chargers have been installed in the Huron Superior and Erie Ontario parking garages. Each garage has two dual-port station allowing a total of four vehicles to charge at the same time in each garage. The two charging stations in the Huron Superior A Parking Garage (221 E Superior) are conveniently situated just past the north entrance ramp gates off of Superior Street along the east wall. The Erie Ontario Parking Garage (321 E Erie) hosts another two charging stations, located just past the Erie Street entrance in section C.

The Parking Office will no longer provide daily coupons to any faculty, staff, or student who is eligible for the Daily Debit Recharge program. Coupons are still available for temporary, part-time, new, and Evanston-based employees. Please review the information on the Daily Validation page for additional details about the program.
