Campus Charging Stations Moved for Better Access

Five charging stations for electric vehicles, previously located on the top floor of Cal State Fullerton's Eastside Parking Structure, are now located on the north side of the College Park Building, right off Nutwood Avenue and Langsdorf Drive.
The charging stations were moved to more easily accommodate campus and community members, said Joe Ferrer, director of parking and transportation services. "It made better sense to locate the charging stations in an accessible area for commuters on the 57 freeway in need of a charge. The stations are part of a larger network so that electric vehicle owners can locate the nearest station on their commute."
The charging stations are for vehicles that need to be charged for four hours or less. Campus members can park there using their usual parking permits but must move their vehicles once they have been charged so that others can access the stations. Community members can purchase a short-term parking permit that is valid for up to four hours from a dispenser located adjacent to the stations.
Vehicles needing a longer charge can receive a full charge from two charging stations on Corporation Drive near the Physical Plant building. A valid parking permit is needed when using any charging station on campus. Again, vehicles must be moved once charged so other users can have access, Ferrer said.
