Where Can I Park?

With a valid permit, non-residence students may park only in lots designated as WHITE parking lots [Lots 3A, 9, 36, 37 (left side)] and 48. Please refer to a campus map for these locations. Typically, permit parking is enforced in these lots from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday (please verify with signs posted in these lots). FREE parking is offered after 4:30 p.m. in all WHITE permit lots for both students and visitors to campus. Overnight parking is not permitted. Failure to utilize the lots listed above may result in a ticket and/or tow.

Parking in staff/faculty lots, residence lots, in Pay & Display, meters, accessible spaces, service vehicle spaces and reserved spaces will not be tolerated and violators will be ticketed and/or towed. Parking on roadways, in fire routes and “no parking” areas are subject to an immediate tow.

Violations and Payment Options

Students who are issued a parking violation are responsible for forwarding payment or initiating the appeal process within 14 days of receiving the violation. Failure to pay your parking ticket(s) may result in further ticketing and/or your vehicle being towed from university property at your expense. Any un-paid parking violations may also lead to a hold on your student account.

Single Term & Co-op Students

If a student is enrolled in classes for one term or will be doing a co-op during the Winter Term, they are still required to apply for and purchase a Fall/Winter (8 month) parking permit. In December, upon completion of your studies, simply return the permit to our office for a credit of four (4) months. This credit may be used for other university charges or saved until you require a parking permit again (i.e. during the summer months).

Should you require a permit for the winter term only, we encourage students to apply during the summer. Students will be placed on a waitlist and contacted mid-December/early-January.
