The goal and objective for campus parking is to
expedite the safe and orderly conduct of campus
business and to provide parking facilities within the
limits of available space.
This bulletin provides notice of regulations for
parking vehicles on campus. Violation of any of these
regulations is cause for a citation. Lack of familiarity
with the regulations does not constitute a defense
for failure to comply. It is the individual's responsibility
to learn the parking regulations and park their
vehicle properly at all times.
