Last Revised: 15 Oct 2004

Refer Questions to: Executive Director, Business & Support Services

Scope

This policy applies to faculty, teachers, staff, students and guests in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University.

Policy

Regulating parking and traffic on campus is necessary to protect the community, maximize avail-able parking, and facilitate the safe and orderly conduct of business. Operating and parking a motor vehicle on campus is a privilege which is conditioned, in large part, on compliance with this policy and with the rules and regulations contained in the Campus Parking and Traffic Regulations handbook distributed by the Department of Public Safety. Violators are subject to the loss of parking privileges, ticketing, booting, or impounding. Not knowing a parking or traffic regulation cannot be used as a basis for an appeal.

Individuals who park on campus are required to have a parking permit. Employees, students, and visitors are charged a fee to park on campus. Parking is within specifically designated areas, and parking is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Department of Public Safety reserves the right to modify rules and regulations, make exceptions if appropriate, change the allocation of parking spaces if necessary, and implement special parking restrictions and traffic regulations.

Resident students at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf are not eligible to maintain a car on campus. Commuting and other resident students are allowed to park in the lots designated for student parking. Students who are members of University employee families may not use an employee permit to gain unfair parking privilege or advantage over other students. Employees who take courses at the University are considered faculty, teacher, or staff and may not have dual parking privileges.

The University assumes no liability for loss of or damage to personal vehicles or to items left within them or for personal injuries that may result from the use of a vehicle on campus.
