Where can I Park
Permits are required at all times even Including evenings, weekends and holidays. There are different permits for different locations. The symbols on all parking signs represent the permits that are valid in that area.
- Students may only park in areas that have a "S" or "N" symbol.
- Faculty/Staff may only park in areas that have a "FS", "S" or "N".
- Special permit areas require a "SP" permit in addition to a paid permit.
- Visitors may only park in areas that have a "P" or "S" symbol and must purchase a pay machine permit from that location.
Permits are non-transferrable and may not be shared, altered or counterfeited. Parking in violation of the parking regulations will result in a citation.
