Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Electric Vehicle Charging at UMD

Thanks to a 2020 grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), UMD received funding to assist with the purchase of two electric vehicle charging stations. We now have three stations each equipped with two 240V chargers. 

With space for two cars to charge simultaneously at each station, EV drivers can top-off their batteries while studying, visiting or working on campus. The cost is $1/hour in addition to the hourly parking space fee.

In addition to the installations on the main campus, there are two Zefnet chargers located at the Natural Resources Research Institute (NRRI).

How it Works

Anyone can use the chargers, including students, staff, faculty and visitors. Charge time and parking at the chargers is limited to four hours. Meter payment or pay lot entry fee is required, with the exception of those displaying a valid UMD parking permit. To check the availability of the charging stations, visit chargepoint.com.

There is no cost for those that use the Zefnet chargers at NRRI. The four hour limit does still apply.
