These regulations are designed to foster the responsible and safe use of vehicles and parking lots at Carroll College. Students and employees are expected to familiarize themselves with all vehicle use and parking regulations. As parking on campus is a privilege and not a right, failure to comply with Carroll vehicle use and parking regulations may result in fines, towing, wheel-locking, or denial of parking privileges. Carroll College assumes no responsibility for any vehicle or its contents while operated or parked on campus. Carroll College has a limited number of parking spaces available on college property for students and employees. For the 2012-2013 academic year, Lot B parking permits will be required for parking on the gravel road that extends from the KTVH Television Station to Nelson Stadium, including parking in front of the Civil Engineering building and below the lower unpaved lot below St. Charles Hall. Vehicles parked on the gravel road with a permit will be ticketed.
if you plan to have a vehicle at college, save yourself the hassle and expense of parking tickets by purchasing a parking permit. Unless you can discipline yourself to not park your vehicle on college property, a parking permit will save you the cost of having all of those parking tickets billed to your student account.
Parking permits for the 2012-2013 academic year will go on sale in the O'Connell Hall lobby on August 19th-20th, 2011, during new student orientation. Parking permits will be sold during the first week of classes, the week of August 23rd, in the Student Life Office in 208 O'Connell Hall.
All students and employees must register any motor vehicle to be used on campus by purchasing a parking permit for the vehicle. Students are expected to obtain authorization for their lot assignment in the Student Life Office and purchase their parking permit at the Business Office at the beginning of each academic year. Employees are expected to obtain their parking permit at the Business Office at the beginning of their employment at Carroll College. Registration is not considered complete until the rear view mirror hanger is in place or parking permit is permanently affixed to the inside, lower left hand corner of the back window. The permit must be attached in a conspicuous place on the rear of all vehicles without windows. The parking permit ceases to be valid when a student is no longer enrolled at Carroll College.
Campus residents can choose to purchase a proximity parking permit for $165 per year to park in a Lot A close to their residence or to purchase a perimeter parking permit for $90 per year to park in a Lot B at the perimeter of the campus. Purchasing a permit provides you with the privilege of parking on campus but does not guarantee a parking space. Proximity parking permits will be limited to the number of parking spaces in the designated Lot. Campus residents will be given first priority to purchase a proximity parking permit on a first-come, first-serve basis. See the Carroll College campus map for reference.
Proximity Lots/Parking Spaces
Commuter students can purchase a perimeter parking permit to park in a Lot B or any remaining Lot A permits after campus residents have had the opportunity to purchase. Perimeter parking permits will not be limited to the number of parking spaces in lots and areas designated Lot B.
Perimeter Lots/Parking Spaces
A reserved parking spot is provided for all full professors and for all administrators at the director and above level. Designated faculty/staff parking on campus is available in the following areas:
Employee Lots/Parking Spaces
Students and employees who have chosen to not register their vehicles with the college may park in hourly-metered parking in the Campus Center parking lot from 7:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. After 5:30 p.m., the Campus Center lot will be available without charge unless reserved for event parking.
Parking in faculty and administrator reserved parking spaces is limited to those vehicles assigned to those parking spaces. Students are not allowed to park in areas reserved for employees. Vehicles registered to students that are parked in employee lots will be ticketed and may be towed and impounded at the owner’s risk and expense.
Reserved parking spaces for administrators in Our Lady of Guadalupe Hall, Campus Center, Old North Performing Arts and St. Albert’s are available for vehicles registered to students with Lot A or Lot B parking permits between 5:30 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. on weekday evenings and on Saturdays and Sundays. Students must have their vehicles removed from these administrative parking spaces by 2:00 a.m. Monday. Reserved spaces for community directors are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Visitor parking slots are not for student or employee parking. Vehicles may be towed and impounded at the owner’s risk and expense. Visitor parking is allowed outside of the business day--without a permit--in any of the faculty/staff parking lots and B Lot Permit parking ltos from 5pm-7am, Monday through Thursday, and from 5pm on Friday through 7am on Monday with the exception of any signed faculty/staff parking spaces. Visitor parking is allowed during the business day in the Campus Center hourly metered parking lot (with hourly rate charge), designated parking spaces on the east and north side of O'Connell Hall (without charge) and in the PE Center northwest lot (without charge). Trailers parked in the PE Center parking lots must receive permission from the Director of Athletics.
Students and employees may be requested to remove their vehicles from designated parking to provide special event parking on campus. For example, event parking is offered for home football games and all vehicles must be cleared from the north, northeast and south PE Center parking lots by posted times on Friday prior to a home game. Event parking may also be requested for the Campus Center parking lot. Failure to remove a vehicle for event parking will result in the vehicle being towed and impounded at the owner’s risk and expense.
Vehicles that are temporarily parked next to a building in order to unload a vehicle must use their hazard lights or the vehicle will be ticketed.
Vehicles with parking permits can be parked in the Campus Center pay lot without charge after 5pm and until 7am on weekdays and after 5pm on Friday until 7am on Monday. Additionally, vehicles with permits can park from 7pm-7am in the faculty/staff parking on the north side of Old North Performing Arts Center, the upper faculty/staff parking lot behind St. Charles Hall, the visitor spaces adjacent to O'Connell Hall, and the faculty/staff parking on the west side of the Campus Center lot. Other faculty and staff parking lots or reserved parking spaces are not available for night or weekend parking (e.g. Fortin/Simperman faculty/staff parking lto, Community Director parking spaces, Wellness Center parking spaces, faculty/staff parking adjacent to the Water Barn and Civil Engineering, individually signed faculty/staff parking in the Campus Center parking lot, reserved spaces in the PE Center parking lots).
Violation of Carroll vehicle use and parking regulations may result in fines, wheel-locking, or towing and impounding the vehicle at the owner’s risk and expense, and disciplinary action.
To support responsible use of a vehicle and campus parking, the first five vehicle or parking fines during an academic year will be issued at the posted amount. Tickets numbering six through ten during the academic year will be issued at the amount of $50 per ticket. The occurrence of an eleventh ticket during an academic year (August-May) will result in the loss of parking privileges on campus for the remainder of the academic year and possibly permanent loss of parking privileges. The posted amounts for the first five tickets issued during an academic year are:
Offense - Minimum Amount
Fines are to be paid at the Carroll College Business Office within 7 days of the time the ticket is issued or the fine will be charged to the student account. In addition to being fined, employees may be subject to discipline for violation of these regulations up to and including termination. Parking ticket appeals must be submitted in writing to the Student Life Office within 7 days of the time the ticket is issued. Requests for appeal will be reviewed by the Director of Community Living.
Minimum fines assessed may be increased or additional disciplinary action may be imposed by the Director of Community Living depending on the severity of the situation.
