Driver Responsibility

  1. Finding Authorized Space
    The responsibility of finding an authorized parking space rests with the driver. Lack of parking space, mechanical problems, inclement weather conditions or other disabilities are not considered valid excuses for violation of traffic and parking regulations.
  2. Space Availability
    A parking permit does not guarantee the holder a parking space except for red reserved permits. It is only an opportunity to park within a specified area or areas. Drivers should be aware that spaces in prime locations tend to fill up first. Depending on your time of arrival, the stadium parking lot may be the best choice for parking with use of the #94 shuttle service to Belknap campus.
  3. Enforcement
    Failure of the University to strictly enforce any parking regulation shall not be construed as a waiver for the future enforcement of the regulation.
  4. Family Responsibility
    An individual is responsible for citations issued to vehicles registered in his/her name or to his/her family.
  5. Permit Ownership
    A parking permit signifies an individual has been granted the privilege of parking on University property. Ownership of the parking permit remains with the University. Individuals are not allowed to transfer ownership. All permits reported lost or stolen should be returned to the Parking Office immediately upon recovery. Possession or use of a lost/stolen permit or a forged/altered permit will result in a fine, tow and impoundment of vehicle and loss of parking privileges. Report the loss or theft of a permit to the Parking Office immediately.
  6. Permit Display
    Parking permits or passes must be displayed according to the parking regulations or special instructions provided by the Parking Office at the time of issuance. A parking permit is not considered valid unless it is displayed correctly on the vehicle. The permit's number must be facing the windshield.

            Stall designation: Parking is permitted only within marked stalls in paved lots. 

            White Stalls: Stalls are marked by two white lines on either side and across closed end of the space except for some handicapped spaces that may be marked with yellow lines on each side of the space. At some locations, a bumper block will designate a valid parking space.

            Yellow Markings: Yellow curbs and hashed out areas are designated fire lanes or no parking zones. Yellow marked areas are tow-away zones and must be kept clear at all times for emergency vehicles.
