Students may park their registered vehicle in designated student lots.

Parking in legal spaces on city streets is an option, but beware that on Dudley Avenue and Clayton Avenue there are reserved residential spaces that are not open to students. These spaces are clearly marked as tow zones with signage and are monitored daily by the city police.

Parking is not permitted in any fire lane, loading zone, marked tow zones, any grass area, or at anytime in specifically reserved spaces such as handicapped, RD, the President, or Governor.

No vehicles are permitted in the Mill’s Quad area without authorization. At no time are vehicles permitted on the grass areas except as specifically authorized in advance. Driving or parking on sidewalks or grounds anywhere on campus is strictly prohibited without the expressed prior consent of the Director of Campus Safety.

Parking Violations

Campus Safety reserves the right to ticket and/or tow any vehicle in violation of vehicle and parking policies, including registration under false pretenses. The driver and/or the registered owner of the vehicle is responsible for violation(s) of College vehicle and parking regulations, including appropriate fines, towing fees, related charges and possible disciplinary action. Make sure you inform any relative or friend who may use your vehicle about parking guidelines. This includes where to legally park your vehicle in order to avoid a parking citation.

Tickets and Impoundment

If you park in a spot not authorized by your permit, you are a candidate for a parking citation. These citations can be costly; the following is a list of parking violations and fines.

Failure to display current decal$40
Parking in a Disabled Person’s spot$40
Parking in a reserved or restricted area$25
Driving/Parking on grounds/sidewalk$25
Parking in a fire Lane$25
Improper parking(over line, not in space)$10
Improper display of current decal$10

Tow fees and impoundment cost even more. Fines are paid at the Business Office located in Highbaugh Hall. There will be a $5 reduction in the total fine for all tickets paid within 2 business days.

Parking Violation Appeal

Students who feel their car has been unfairly ticketed have the right to file an appeal with the Campus Safety Office within 5 business days. An appeals committee which is comprised of faculty, staff, and students meets monthly to review parking appeals.

How do I file an appeal?

Parking citation appeals are filed with the Campus Safety office. In order for your appeal to be considered an appeal form must be completed giving a written explanation of circumstances. The copy of the parking citation must also be attached to the appeal form. When you file an appeal you do not need to pay any portion of the fine until after you have been notified of the committee’s decision.

How will I be notified of the committee’s decision?

Students who have filed an appeal will receive a letter informing them of the committee’s decision. Students who are informed that their appeal has been denied or amended will still have the opportunity to receive a $5 reduction in the total fine. However, the fine must be paid in full and within 2 days from receipt of the notification letter.
