Parking Enforcement:

Parking rules and regulations are designed to:

  • Provide orderly parking for; faculty, staff, students and visitors
  • Protect pedestrians
  • Ensure emergency access to all buildings.

Violation of these regulations can result in parking citations, immobilization or towing of your vehicle. ONLY the Department of Parking & Transportation Services has the authority to waive or grant exceptions to these regulations. Parking & Transportation Services will make every effort to ensure that a parking space is available to anyone who purchases a parking permit through enforcement of these regulations. Due to the limited number of parking spaces on campus, enforcement of parking regulations is important even during off-peak periods to ensure availability during peak periods.

A copy of the Parking Rules and Regulations can be found at Parking Rules and Regulations.
