Parking penalties

Rights and obligations

All vehicles parked on the University campus must display a valid parking permit or coupon for the area the vehicle is parked in.

Purchase of an all-year parking permit does not guarantee a parking space on campus. It simply furnishes the holder the right to park in designated Staff and Student Permit Parking areas if space is available. This is covered in the University's Parking and Traffic Statute 2017 (PDF). Permit holders are required to comply with display instructions and appropriate parking regulations in the use of the permit.
