Students, faculty, and staff are expected to comply with driving and parking rules. There are parking spaces set aside for handicapped drivers and for visitors, but students and employees are expected to register their cars with Public Safety to obtain the appropriate decal and display that decal as instructed. Those who do not comply may be ticketed and/or may have their cars towed. Tickets may be appealed within 5 working days after they are issued.
The responsibility for finding a legal parking space rests with the vehicle operator. Lack of space in any area or the fact that other vehicles are parked improperly is not considered a valid excuse for violation of these regulations.
The Director of Public Safety attempts to regulate the number of permits issued so adequate space is left for all parkers under normal circumstances. During large-scale events, parking space may be temporarily filled on campus; and in this case, parkers are expected to wait for a legal space to become available or to park off campus.
As needed for special functions, emergencies, or other College-related functions, the Director of Public Safety may temporarily close a parking area(s) or designate an area(s) for a specific person or group. Unless specifically authorized by Public Safety, parking on lawns, fields, or other grassy areas is prohibited.
Vehicles should be parked within parking space boundaries if so marked.
