All campus lots require a valid parking permit 24/7 year-round. Each lot has a sign indicating the type of permit required. Most lots on campus are not available to visitors. During the week, parents and other visitors must obtain a permit to park in visitor lots from University Police. On weekends a permit is available at Center Lodge or from your residence hall. Such permits are valid from 6 p.m. on Friday until 6 p.m. on Sun. in lots 301 & 401.
Tickets received by family or visitors may wind up as “holds” on the financial accounts of the student they are visiting, the same as if the student got the ticket him/herself. Holds for unpaid tickets may result in the withholding of grades and transcripts, and ineligibility to register for future classes until payment is made in full. Outstanding ticket fees are turned over to a private firm for collection.
For some parents, their first experience of campus parking is on the day everyone is dropping off their sons and daughters – and all their stuff- at the dorm. Move-in day is an unusual day when normal parking rules are suspended. All other occasions follow the normal regulations.
