Parking privileges may be denied, revoked or suspended for any of the following reasons:
A revocation of parking privileges will normally be accompanied by a ban from driving the vehicle or any other vehicle on campus for the duration of the loss of privilege.
The Department of Public Safety will give written notice of such suspension, any other sanction and a deadline for returning the parking permit to Public Safety. A $100.00 fine will be assessed to the student’s account for failure to return the parking permit to the Department of Public Safety during the allotted time. An additional fine of $100.00 will be assessed to the student’s account for each additional parking violation received during the student’s parking revocation period.
The vehicle will also be subject to the additional expense of citation and/or towing at the owner’s/operator’s expense. The revocation period lasts for four academic weeks from the date that the parking permit is returned to the Department of Public Safety and will automatically reset with any additional violations received during the revocation period. At the conclusion of the revocation period, students will be required to apply for a new permit and will be subject to the permit application fee.
Should a traffic violation warrant additional sanctions, a report will be submitted to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards for a conduct hearing. Such violations include, but are not limited to: driving on sidewalks, grass or other non-roadways, speeding or reckless driving, traveling the wrong direction on a one way road, operating a vehicle in a manner that endangers others, and failure to obey other traffic control signs.
The posted speed limit on campus is 15 miles per hour. A ticket for a violation of excess speed may be issued to the student after the violation has occurred. The determination of excess speed is subject to the officer's reasonable discretion. An actual rate of travel is not required.
Public Safety officers are authorized, but not limited, to perform the following:
Prior notice is not required to tow. The registered owner or driver assumes responsibility for all towing and/or storage fees. Fire lane parking violations or leaving a vehicle unattended in a fire zone for any length of time are violations subject to immediate towing.
All violations of this policy are subject to the following:
|$100.00||Freshman Car Violation|
|$80.00||Boot Removal Fee|
|$100.00||Parking around Bayside Quad, under the Arches or within the Quad itself|
|$100.00||Parking in a Handicap Spot|
$100.00 Parking Ban
*Subject to change without notice
For safety and liability reasons, the Department of Public Safety do not jump start any vehicles. It is the owner/operator's responsibility to arrange for such services.
Revenues collected for permit fees and parking violations are credited to a Parking Fund that contributes to the maintenance, improvements and additions to existing parking areas and the regulation of parking and traffic throughout campus.
