All vehicles parking on campus must be registered with the
Office of Public Safety, Parking and Traffic Services office (PTS).
Staff and faculty must register their vehicles with PTS when first
hired and during January of each year thereafter. Parking
privileges are designated for specifically assigned areas by
color-coded permits as specified in the parking regulations found
Vehicle registration cards are available at the Office of Public
Safety. There is no charge for vehicle registration for staff or
faculty and they receive a copy of Parking and Traffic Rules
and Regulations with their parking permit.
There is a mandatory student registration fee for a parking
permit. Permits can be purchased at any time during the academic
year when the student brings a vehicle to campus. Those who try to
avoid paying the fee usually end up paying more in fines than the
actual cost of registration. Questions regarding parking can be
answered by Parking and Traffic Services at 274-3756. Vehicles
brought to campus for a short period of time are eligible for a
temporary permit, which is valid for up to two weeks. Check with
PTS for details. All students with registered vehicles are required
to park in assigned student parking lots.
Students, faculty or staff members with disabilities may park in
any handicapped-access space or any other non-restricted area in
any campus lot (with the exception of Lot P) so long as the
appropriate state-issued permit is displayed on their vehicles as

are restricted to visitors only. The Office of Public Safety is
open 24 hours a day and does not charge for visitor registration
In the interest of safety, fire lane regulations are strictly
