Colleges and Universities
Maastricht University is the most international university in the Netherlands, with more than 18,000 international students and 4,400 employees.
WPS has equipped several branches of the university with the state-of-the-art, user-friendly parking management system ParkID and the corresponding ParkAdvance parking equipment. We implemented a single platform that linked all branches through a network connection. For one, parking management is possible both locally and centrally. The system is flexible and can be fully adapted to these changing needs and requirements, for example if Maastricht University were to decide to switch to paid or ticketless parking. Staff and students enter and exit the facility using a MIFARE® pass and visitors receive a parking pass on arrival.
Visitors must report to the reception desk of the branch in question on departure, after which the parking pass is recoded to a time slot within which the visitor must leave the parking facility. This helps to prevent visitors from using the parking facility for extended periods of time (for example to go into the city center) and from keeping parking spaces occupied unnecessarily.
