Parking on campus

Students, faculty, staff and contract employees who own, possess, or operate a vehicle on campus property are responsible for knowing the vehicle parking and traffic policies. With rare exceptions, parking violations are imposed against the vehicle rather than against the operator, and the owner of the vehicle in violation is responsible for payment of the fines. Moving violations are imposed against the operator of the vehicle at the time of the violation. Parking and traffic policies are enforced 24 hours per day throughout the year.

The Department of Public Safety (DPS) wants all students and employees to know that vehicle registration is required for anyone parking a vehicle on campus. Providing the information is important as it provides Public Safety pertinent contact information should a vehicle be involved in an incident—i.e., a vehicle is broken into, someone hits the vehicle, or the vehicle needs to be moved for maintenance issues. The campus registration information enables DPS officers to quickly contact the owner.
