Parking

Parking

The operation of a motor vehicle on the university campus is a privilege granted by the university. Serious or excessive infractions of these regulations constitute grounds for the revocation of this privilege. Students, faculty, and staff members are particularly urged to familiarize themselves with the sections of this site pertaining to parking restrictions, moving violations, parking violations, and penalties.

A vehicle registration permit authorizes persons to park in the zones to which they are entitled only if space is available. A parking space is not guaranteed in those zones. Additional space is available for all persons in the stadium parking area.

For more information please call the University Police Department at 475-5711.
