Charger locations and specs
You can also use ChargePoint's Find a Location tool to find charger locations across the U.S.
All charging stations at CU Boulder are Level II chargers (i.e. will charge a standard EV in a few hours). All CU chargers are open to any plug-in EV user (staff, students, and visitors) except for the chargers in the Center for Community (C4C chargers are only available to lot 327 permit holders). To inquire about permits for these lots or to move from an existing lot, contact your department's Parking Liaison or email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability.
How to charge/charging fees
CU charging stations are on the ChargePoint network and function as the parking payment machine, which will assess the $1.50 hourly charging fee plus a variable short term parking fee for visitors or staff without a permit. If you plan to charge on campus, we encourage you to become a ChargePoint member. As a member you can download the ChargePoint app to start and stop charging sessions remotely, or you can use the RFID card provided to you.
CU monthly/semester permit holders
Effective July 6, 2021, permit holders pay $1.50/hour while they are actively charging if they have set up a CU "connection." Anyone without a permit will also be charged the short-term visitor parking rate (refer to section below).
Effective July 6, 2021, visitors pay $1.50/hour for charging plus the standard short term visitor parking rates of $1-$2/hour (depending on lot/day of week/time of day). Visitor parking rates are posted on lot signage and in the ChargePoint app.
