All vehicles shall be properly parked in marked spaces. All unmarked areas should and will be considered fire lanes. The College reserves the right to boot or remove by towing, at the owner’s expense, any vehicle that is not registered or that is parked in violation of campus parking regulations. This includes vehicles parked on campus lawns or grass areas, as well as any vehicle parked in fire lane areas or blocking exits. This also includes any and all vehicles that have received a total of six traffic violations during the full academic year. This applies to the total number of paid and unpaid violations received per vehicle and/or operator. All persons shall be prohibited from leaving unattended vehicles on any campus roadway or drive at any time. These vehicles will be towed.

Guests shall be instructed by their hosts to come to the Office of Campus Safety or the Switchboard after normal business hours to receive a guest parking pass. Hosts are responsible for any parking violations of their guests. When a tow truck is called, regardless of whether it is present or not, the vehicle operator will be held responsible for compensating the tow truck driver. We reserve the right to block any vehicle being towed until the arrival of the tow truck.

When a tow truck is called, regardless of whether it completes the tow or not, the registered vehicle owner will be held responsible for the towing charge.
