Guide to Student Housing and Dining Services2022-23 Policies

VI. Vehicles and Parking Policies

1. Bicycle Parking

Bicycles may not be parked or ridden in areas not typically designated for bikes including, but not limited to walkways, breezeways, hallways, courtyards, stairwells, or other public spaces. We highly recommend locking bicycles and trailers with a U‑lock. Repairs and maintenance may not be performed inside rooms, suites, apartments, or buildings. Bicycles may only be locked in designated bicycle parking areas outside buildings. Bikes must not obstruct passageways, walkways, stairwells, or landings. Bicycles must be removed from Student Housing and Dining Services areas at the end of the academic year. Apartments only: In addition to designated bicycle parking, bikes and bike trailers can be stored in apartments as long as they are stored safely, do not cause damage to the facility, and do not create a fire or safety hazard.

2. Automobile Parking

Campus parking lots are enforced by Transportation Services. Specific policies related to parking can be found online:

3. Parking Accommodations

Transportation Services is responsible for granting approvals for any parking accommodation requests. Please contact their office with questions regarding accommodations, citations, or other issues related to parking enforcement.

4. Parking Permits

The parking permit process is based on where you live. Parking is not guaranteed.


Students are not permitted to bring a vehicle to campus.


Parking permits are required for each vehicle parked on premises at all times. Parking will be available at an additional cost. Purchase of, and payments for parking decals will be made directly with the property management, who is a separate agent of the owner. Residents are not permitted to purchase a campus parking permit. All residents and guests are required to abide by the Rules and Regulations of the Parking Addendum.


Parking permissions are allotted by Student Housing and Dining Services and sold by the leasing office at each property. Please note that only leaseholders may purchase parking permissions. If granted, residents must supply required vehicle and registration information to the leasing office. Residents approved for parking permissions must complete the process for claiming their permit and only park in the approved area in order to avoid a citation.

5. Visitor Parking

Visitors may park in campus lots and purchase the appropriate permit from Transportation Services. More information can be found on the Transportation Services website.

6. Motorized vehicles/skates/Hoverboards

Residents may not store or repair motorized vehicles in rooms, suites, or apartments. Motorized vehicles may only be ridden or driven on approved University locations. Hoverboards (self-balancing 2-wheel scooters), electric scooters, electric skateboards, and electric bicycles are considered motorized vehicles and may not be used, charged, or stored in rooms, suites, or apartments, or any common area of any Student Housing and Dining Services owned, operated, or affiliated space. The batteries in certain hoverboards may catch fire while charging and therefore present a significant safety risk. Skateboards, roller skates, inline skates, and similar items with wheels may not be worn or used in hallways, walkways, breezeways, stairwells, courtyards, dining commons, or other shared spaces where such use is not typical. This includes benches, curbs, stairs, handrails, tables, or similar surfaces

7. Motorcycle Parking

Motorcycles follow the standard parking process for your housing area.

At Solano Park, motorcycles do not require a permit to park. Motorcycles may be parked only in designated bicycle parking areas and bike wells. Motorcycles may not be parked on patios, breezeways or under stairwells and may not be operated anywhere except on the streets surrounding Solano Park.
