The responsibility for finding a legal parking space rests with the vehicle operator. Lack of space in lots designated for your permit and not knowing the rules are not valid reasons for violating parking regulations. Improperly parked vehicles are subject to campus citations, immobilization, and/or towing at the owner’s expense.

Personal notes or explanations left on a vehicle are not considered valid authorization to park in violation of parking regulations.  Previous years parking permits are not valid for the current year.  Permits must be displayed at all times.

A parking permit does not guarantee a space to park.
