Parking Guide for the 2021/2022 Academic Year

Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) supports the diverse College community by managing assets and providing professional, efficient, and quality services. To provide safe and adequate parking facilities for all who drive on campus, rules and regulations have been established in an effort to create an orderly environment. The guidelines found in this brochure should be read carefully. All persons driving and/or parking on campus are responsible for knowing and understanding these rules and visit website for complete set of rules.

Registration/Use of Permit

  • Year-round all vehicles parked on campus must be registered at
  • Permits are issued in hangtag form and must be displayed on the rearview mirror and clearly visible. Contact PTS if no rearview mirror exists.
  • Permits are not transferable from person to person. You may not register a vehicle belonging to or driven by another student, faculty, staff, or affiliate of the College. All employees and students must register their own vehicles and pay the proper fee. Do not lend your pass to anyone. If you have mechanical problems with your primary vehicle, you may transfer the tag to another vehicle, provided they are not an employee, student, or affiliate of the College, and as long as the vehicle has been registered with PTS. Use “My Parking Portal” to manage your account.
  • Lost, defaced, or stolen permits must be reported immediately to PTS and replaced. A permit that is reported lost and later found, must be returned to PTS. A replacement fee must be paid; exceptions are listed on website. Charges may be filed for falsifying an official document
  • A non-refundable registration fee is included in the cost of all permits. Refunds for parking fees are based on the College-approved schedule.
  • Should you forget to transfer the hangtag to another properly registered vehicle, stop at the Conrad Welcome Center for a temporary pass. This courtesy will be extended free of charge twice within the semester. After that, a fee may be imposed.
  • Email when you dispose of a vehicle so that we can update your information. Remove the permit before disposing of the vehicle to ensure the replacement fee is waived.
  • For summer, winter session, and mid-semester break, parking in any lot (except lot L) is permissible, however parking rules will be enforced in metered, reserved, service, and handicapped spaces. Permits are required.

Overnight Parking

Overnight parking is available in lots C, A (yellow permits), V1, X (red permits), and Y (purple permits) for resident students. Commuters and visitors must obtain an overnight pass from PTS during business hours or from the pay station. Lots V1 or X will be assigned. Pay stations are located in lots T and V.

Winter Parking

Overnight parking largely impacts snow removal operations. No overnight parking is permitted in commuter designated lots*. All vehicles must be removed from commuter lots by 2 am daily. Information on the College snow removal program can be obtained from the Office of Facilities & Planning. Lack of familiarity or failure to comply with these regulations can result in vehicles being ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s expense. To allow for proper snow removal, students may be required to move their vehicle from residential parking lots A, C, V1, Y and X to any other parking lot. Notice will be given when vehicles must be moved and when they may be returned to their designated parking lots. If away from campus, students must make advance arrangements for moving their vehicle. Vehicles not in compliance during the emergency snow removal, will be cited.
