Vehicle Regulations

Anyone who drives on the University campus is expected to abide by all posted regulations and use designated parking. Failure to comply with state and campus regulations may result in loss of parking rights. The University does not assume responsibility for any vehicle or its contents while it is on campus. 

Vehicle Operation

Vehicles are to be operated within posted speed limits. The maximum speed limit is 15 miles per hour on the University campus. Vehicles are to be operated only on surfaced roadways and parked only in designated areas. Vehicles may not be parked on lawns. 

Parking On Main Campus & Off-Site

On main campus, no parking is allowed in areas painted or striped with yellow paint. This is done to prevent blocking of driveways, crosswalks, and building entrances. Some parking spaces are reserved from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday-Friday. Resident Director and handicap parking are reserved at all times. Students may use all non-designated spaces.

At off-site campuses, students may be required to purchase parking permits or pay fees. Contact the Adult and Graduate Studies Office for details. For safety, students are encouraged to leave class together at night.

Visitors in the Classroom

  • Instructor Observation – An instructor observation may be conducted during class time when a University administrator or mentor observes an instructor for evaluation.
  • Student Assistance – Should a student need special assistance, such as someone to help carry class materials and books or someone to help take notes due to a temporary injury, he/she should to notify the instructor of the injury and state the reason for the visitor via email prior to class time.
