Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

EV charging station

Western currently offers three EV Charging Stations on campus. These stations are located in the Visual Arts lot, the Alumni Thompson lot and the Elborn lot. See the parking map for locations.  

In order to use the charging stations, time must be booked through the ChargePoint app.

We do not charge per kilowatt hour; however, standard parking rates apply.   

Elborn and Visual Art Charging Stations - these stations are located in ungated lots. Permit holders with a valid Western Parking permit can use these stations at no additional charge.

Alumni Thompson Charging Station -  this station is located in a gated, paid visitor lot. The use of the charging station is complimentary; however, payment on exit is subject to the usual parking rate of the lot. Western permit holders who would like to use this EV station at no additional cost will need an EV-hang tag to allow them access to this gated charging station. Stop in to the Parking Office and we'll be happy to provide you with an EV permit at no charge, to be used in addition to your regular paid parking permit.
