Parking

These regulations have been established to protect the safety of faculty, staff, students and visitors, and to control motor vehicle traffic and parking on campus so that college business may be conducted in an orderly manner. Parking or driving a motor vehicle on the LSC campus is a privilege and the owner and/or operator is responsible for seeing that his/her vehicle is neither operated nor parked in violation of these regulations or any regulations/laws of the state.

General Regulations

  1. College parking and traffic restrictions are indicated by these regulations and/or signs, street markings or curb markings.
  2. It is the responsibility of all faculty, staff and students operating a motor vehicle on campus to learn and obey these parking and traffic regulations. Ignorance of the provisions of these regulations will not be accepted as a defense for violations. Specific questions relating to these regulations may be directed to the Department of Public Safety.
  3. The registrant is held responsible for any violation involving the registered vehicle (or the person who is responsible for registering the vehicle if is not registered) when he/she is operating the vehicle or when another individual is using the vehicle.

Vehicle Registration

  1. Every member of the campus community (faculty, staff and students) must register any motor vehicle they park on college property. This will be enforced at all times.
  2. Parking permits can be picked up in the Public Safety Office (near the Vail lobby). The Public Safety Office is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  3. A vehicle is registered only when a valid parking permit for that vehicle is properly displayed. The college parking permit must be affixed to the lower right side of the windshield.
  4. The issuance of a permit does not guarantee a parking space. Lack of space is not considered a valid excuse for violation of the parking regulations.
