Public Safety officers are entrusted with ensuring the safety of
the University community and its visitors. Officers are to be
treated with courtesy at all times, particularly when they are
enforcing parking regulations. Failure to act in a proper manner
may result in the loss of parking privileges; no refund on permit
will be issued. All persons using the campus parking facilities are
expected to cooperate and accept officers’ directions and
suggestions. Officers are required to place parking violations on
all cars in violation of parking regulations. There should not be
any dispute with any officer issuing parking violations. All
complaints may be made to the Executive Director of Public Safety
Times of Enforcement:
- Permit Areas: All parking zones are limited to authorized
permit holders and will be strictly enforced.
- Restricted Spaces: These spaces are restricted for their
designated purpose at all times (24 hours a day).
a) Murray Residence Reserved
b) Fire lanes
c) Handicap parking areas
d) Residence Village
f) Specially signed areas or pavement markings
Lack of a parking space will not be considered a valid excuse for
violation of parking regulations. Individuals who frequently
violate parking regulations are demonstrating a lack of
consideration for others and may forfeit parking privileges.
Students will be reported to the Dean of Students; faculty members
will be reported to the Provost; employees will be reported to
corresponding department heads. It is the responsibility of each
person to make a prompt settlement with the University.
- Two unpaid parking violations will result in vehicle being
immobilized or towed.
- More than three parking violations in one academic year will
result in subsequent fines being doubled.
- More than four parking violations in one academic year may
result in the loss of parking privileges.
