If your vehicle is towed, report to the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management (open 24 hours). A storage fee is charged by the towing company after the vehicle has been in their yard for 24 hours.

The speed limit on campus roads is 25 mph. The speed limit in parking lots is 10 mph.

Towing
A vehicle is subject to being towed when it is:

  • Unregistered and has three or more parking/traffic violations
  • Parked in a critical area
  • Has three or more parking/traffic violations in any academic year and is parked in violation of the parking rules and regulations
  • Parked on grass or surfaces other than those designated for parking
  • Determined to be a safety hazard by the Office of Public Safety
  • Displaying a fraudulent, defaced, or altered permit

If the vehicle you are using is towed, report to the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management (open 24 hours). A storage fee is charged by the towing company after the vehicle has been in its yard for 24 hours. The owner is responsible for all fees and fines.

Appeal Procedure
A parking citation can be appealed by completing the online violation appeal form or you may hand write an appeal, noting all pertinent information, and submit it to Parking Services within three business days of the citation date. Questions concerning the appeal procedure may be directed to Parking Services 607-274-3756.

Anyone who receives an Ithaca College parking summons has the right to appeal the fine. The only proper basis for an appeal of a summons is that the cited regulation was not violated.

A violation appeal is considered by the Parking Appeals Board. Members review all relevant information and make a decision on the appeal. If a negative decision is received and the appellant has information that was not included in the written appeal, he or she may request a personal appearance. If a positive decision is rendered, a credit will be issued to the appellant's campus account. Decisions of the Parking Appeals Board are final.

The parking citation must be paid within 10 days of the date of the ticket, even though the ticket is under appeal. The appeals process generally takes two to three weeks.
