Can I park in visitor or other designated parking spaces?

April 16th, 2010 by Michael

There are several types of designated parking spaces on campus. Misusing these spaces will result in fines and towing.

  • Visitor spaces are provided in lots throughout the campus. These spaces are short-term parking for persons visiting Plymouth State University. These spaces are not for student, faculty or staff use.
  • The 15-minute spaces provided in key areas are for those times when students, faculty and staff need very short-term parking, such as loading and unloading a vehicle.
  • Spaces marked “physical plant parking only” or “food service parking only” are just that. They are for use only by those entities because they need immediate access to certain areas to provide services to the community.

I paid for a permit to park in my lot, but when I got there no spaces were available. Can I park in a different lot?

Sorry, no. From time to time lots get filled with vehicles that don’t belong there. While we sympathize with the situation, and take measures to enforce parking rules by issuing citations to those who illegally take up spaces in lots, we can’t allow you to park in another lot because there is no space available there either. Logically, if you park illegally in another lot, you will displace someone else from their own lot. Then that person may choose to park illegally in yet another lot, causing three violations instead of just one. Lack of available space is not an acceptable excuse to park inappropriately. If you find that there are vehicles in your designated lot that are not supposed to be there, contact University Police and we will send an officer to issue citations or possibly tow the vehicles involved.

I have a restricted permit but I sometimes have to load or unload my car at my residence hall. I can't carry all that stuff up from Facilities Services.

Although vehicles with restricted permits cannot park on the main campus, we do allow for those times when a vehicle has to be on campus to load or unload. Examples include when you return after being gone for the weekend or holiday or even when you do laundry or have groceries. You may park in a 15- or 30-minute space near your residence hall or campus apartment for this purpose. If none of these spaces are available,  just leave a note on your vehicle (including the time you parked it,) your hazards on, and the University Police will allow a reasonable amount of time for you to park while unloading.
