Parking

Decals

Decals can be obtained from the campus police office.

Students must register vehicles routinely driven on campus at the Campus Police and Vehicle’s Information Center. Registration information includes social security number, driver’s license number. Liability Insurance is recommended for all vehicles.

At the time the vehicle is registered, the campus police will issue a hanging decal. It should be facing forward on your inside rear view mirror. Only the current decal should be displayed. Additional hanging decals can be purchased for $5.00.

If a temporary vehicle (without a decal) must be driven on campus, the student should obtain a temporary parking permit at the Campus Police and Visitor’s Information Center. The license tag number of the temporary vehicle is necessary to receive a temporary permit.

Please read and observe the following rules:

Students, faculty and staff must park in their designated areas.

The campus parking plan is as follows:

  • Faculty members may not give students permission to use faculty parking areas.
  • Parking is prohibited in loading and no parking zones.
  • All stop signs must be obeyed.
  • Speed on all campus roads is limited to 15 mph., except where posted otherwise, but any speed not safe for the conditions of the road, including vehicular and pedestrian congestion is prohibited.
  • All parking must conform to marked-off areas. All parallel parking must be within twelve inches of the curb.
    Vehicles left on campus overnight must be registered with the Campus Police Office.
  • Driving and parking on the grass and sidewalk is prohibited.
  • Double parking is prohibited.
  • Blocking driveways, entrances an exits to parking areas or buildings is prohibited.
  • Drivers must yield to pedestrians in designated crosswalks.
  • In all lots that are marked with parking spaces, vehicles must be marked heading into spaces.

A citation and fine will be issued for each violation. Vehicles may be towed away at owner’s expense in the event of chronic violations. If a vehicle is parked in such a manner that it cannot be towed, the Campus Police will immobilize the vehicle with a “Car Boot” to the wheel area. This action will result in an additional fine to the owner/driver of the vehicle.

Curb Colors

  • White – Students

Parking Fines can be paid at the cashiers office on any campus during normal hours, 8 am – 4:30 pm.
