Public Safety/Parking

Summer Conferences—Please Park in Designated Lot

During the academic year, off campus groups should park in the Vail parking lot or Stonehenge. All off campus guests must have a parking permit displayed on their dash on the passenger’s side, which will be provided by the conference office, to the group leader prior to the conference date. Never park in an area not designated as a parking space, i.e., on the grass, not between the marked lines, etc.

Events Which Include Alcohol

Any student run activity with alcohol requires a sheriff or a discussion between public safety and the RHD in charge of the event. Any activity with alcohol with a headcount greater than 100 people or a group we are unfamiliar with, check with public safety to determine if a sheriff is required.

If you plan to use an outside caterer, you can let us know that too! Remember, any events which include alcohol must use Sodexo as the alcohol provider, as they hold the liquor license. This requires a 14 working day lead time.

At Least Three Weeks Out

Provide menu details (if using Sodexo) and update other requests. Provide catering set up time and pick up time, estimated headcount. All AV requests must be provided at this point. Group coordinator should receive guest parking permit from conference office via email.

Confirm final catering counts with the conference office. Please let us know your signage needs (location and what exactly you would like printed on them.)

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.


  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.


  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.
  5. Registered faculty and staff vehicles are permitted to park in all legal parking spaces on campus except Wheelock lot.


All parking and traffic violations are enforced by the Lyndon State College Public Safety Department. The following is a list of some of the violations.

If a fine is not paid or an appeal not filed within seven working days from the date of the violation, the registrant will be liable for the fine. Parking tickets/fines must be paid at the Business Office.


The college reserves the right to remove or impound any vehicle found on campus that is parked in a driveway, fire lane, and interior campus, blocking a loading dock or trash dumpster, or parked in such a way as to constitute a hazard to vehicular and pedestrian traffic or to the movement or operation of emergency equipment. The owner will be responsible for the costs involved in removing or impounding and storing the vehicle. The recovery fee for all towed vehicles is set by the company performing the service. The towing company will normally also charge a storage fee for each day the vehicle is held by the tow service.

College Liability

No liability is created by granting of parking or vehicle operating privileges on property owned, leased or otherwise controlled by the college. The college assumes no responsibility for the care or protection of vehicle or contents while operated on college property. Officers of the Department of Public Safety do patrol college parking facilities.
