Enforcement and Fines

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 in writing.

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
e) Faculty
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.
