Vehicle Registration

Vehicle Owners: All students with vehicles on campus must register them and receive a parking tag. This can be done during registration or at any time through The Center for Student Life. You will need your license plate number and vehicle specifications (i.e. color, year, make, and model). There is no extra fee for parking decals. Students are not to park in fire lanes, reserved, or restricted areas. Vehicle violation fines are outlined in the Course Catalog and must be paid to the Business Office. Unpaid vehicle violation fines may be put on a student account, and neither registration nor transcripts will be allowed until these fines are paid. Questions concerning violations should be directed toward Campus Security.

Bicycle Owners: Students bringing bicycles should register them with The Center for Student Life and obtain a registration sticker in order for them to be allowed on campus. Registration stickers should be affixed to the bicycle appropriately. Bicycles must be stored in your room or at a bike rack located behind one of the residence halls. It is recommended that all bicycles be locked or otherwise secured when stored outside of the student’s room to avoid theft or “unapproved borrowing.” No bicycles may be stored in stairwells or hallways.
