Lecturers should park at a pay-and-display parking during the day and receive a refund. Refunds are made either by filing an appendix to the study administration or via the discount station. In the evenings (after 16.00/4 P.M and on weekends) it should be possible for hourly lecturers who have ID cards to park on the free parking lots.
