Battery Assistance

Parking & Transportation Services provides free, on-campus battery assistance. The intent of this service is to assist faculty, staff, students, and their guests, with dead batteries.

This on-campus service is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. However, this assistance is not available on weekends, during special events that require officers for traffic control (including football game days), nor when the University is closed.

Customers in need of battery assistance should call the Parking & Transportation Services dispatch at (225) 578-5002 and a Traffic Control Officer will be dispatched to the on-campus location.

Please provide the make, model, and color of your vehicle, the license plate number, and the length of time you will be with your vehicle. Response time will depend on the availability of an officer at the time of the request, but every effort will be made to give a speedy response. Also, customers will be required to sign a waiver or liability prior to receiving assistance.
