Contractor Parking

Contractor parking is available on a limited basis, and availability varies with campus location. Parking Services will try to accommodate contractor requests whenever possible or will offer alternative options.

All vehicles parked outside a fenced staging area on university property must display a valid Parking Services permit unless parked in a metered space. If parked at a meter, the meter must be paid. Use of any parking facilities for construction related activity must be approved in advance by Parking Services.

Contractors who fail to make proper arrangements for the use of parking facilities on campus will be subject to receiving a parking citation. Parking fines must be appealed or paid within fourteen days from the citation issue date. If not paid within fourteen days, the citation will elevate to double the original amount and be forwarded to University Accounts Receivable. Appealed citations that are upheld by the hearing officer will be assessed an additional hearing fee of $10.00.
