ChargePoint EV Level 2, 240V Charging Station

This charger is a part of the ChargePoint Network  (Level 2, 240V) and is located on Level 3 of the Franklin parking garage.  It comes with two ports so it can charge two vehicles at the same time.  Access is first come, first serve.

IMPORTANT:  ChargePoint will bill you for usage based on the length of time your vehicle is connected to the charging station. Please make sure to move your vehicle when charging is complete or you will be charged as long as it occupies the ChargePoint space.

To charge a vehicle, you may use a ChargePoint access card, an RFID-enabled credit card, or call ChargePoint customer support toll-free to provide a credit card number by phone. You may also download the ChargePoint mobile app to charge your vehicle with just one tap from your smart phone.

You must register with ChargePoint to activate your ChargePoint access card.  You can initiate a charge session without a membership, but with a free ChargePoint account, you can set up mobile and email notifications to get updates on the charging status of your vehicle. 

Enrollment and billing for using the ChargePoint EV Charging Station is an employee/ChargePoint relationship.  Please visit ChargePoint for instructions, including a video demonstration on how to charge your vehicle.  In the event the charging station appears to be malfunctioning, please contact BuildingServices@ucop.edu
