Spalding Parking Permits

 

Parking and Driving On Campus

Campus Safety is responsible for enforcing all University parking rules and regulations. There are parking areas on the University campus that are dedicated accessible parking and visitor parking. Use of these reserved areas is strictly enforced. The reserved markings may appear on signs or painted on the pavement. All University personnel and students must assume responsibility for any citations they receive for improper parking. This responsibility includes the payment of fines.

 

Vehicle Registration and Parking Permit Decal

All University personnel and students must register any vehicle parked on campus and obtain a parking permit decal. All vehicle registrations and parking permit decals expire at the beginning of Session 1 in August each year. The decal is to be displayed on the front rearview mirror or on the driver‘s side dashboard.

Vehicle registrations and issuance of the parking permit decals for students is available online at www.spalding.edu/parking. Students may register vehicles 24/7 through the Spalding Portal and have the decal mailed to their home or residence hall address. When registering online students may print a temporary permit to use until delivery of the official decal. Parking decals may be transferred between vehicles owned by the student or faculty but the vehicles must be registered on the parking site.

 

Designated Parking Areas 

The University endorses the general Kentucky regulations governing parking, and the prescriptions thereof will be enforced. Further, parking is permitted on campus, but only in the designated paved areas. Parking in some areas on campus is restricted for use only by individuals with valid accessible parking tags and visitors. Compliance with these restrictions is strictly enforced.

 

Parking in designated accessible parking areas is reserved for those students or employees who have disabilities. Driving a vehicle that has an accessible tag does not give an individual the right to park in an accessible space unless he/she are the one who has a disability and the tag is in his/her name. If asked by Campus Safety, you will be expected to show documentation of proof ownership of a valid accessible parking permit in the student‘s name.

 

All parking except those areas designated for Faculty, Visitors and Accessible Parking are available on a first come, first served basis. Loading Zone parking spots have been added in several places next to each major building. Vehicles parked in these spaces must be dropping off or picking up material for their office or class. Parking in the loading zones is limited to 15 minutes and will be strictly enforced.

 

Other Parking and Traffic Regulations 

Parking in fire lanes (as indicated by yellow striping on the roadway or curb), driving lanes (any area that does not have white striping), and spaces allocated for the handicapped will result in costly fines and possible disciplinary action. Continued abuse will result in the vehicle being booted or towed at the owner‘s expense.

 

Persons involved in moving violations, such as speeding, reckless driving, failure to observe stop signs and other driving regulations are subject to receiving a citation.

 

All traffic and parking regulations will be enforced by Campus Safety. During the first five (5) calendar days of each semester/session, warning citations will be issued for vehicles without parking decals. After five (5) days Campus Safety will ticket cars without valid decals. Students may request this ticket be waived by Campus Safety if they provide proof of purchase of a valid parking permit within five (5) calendar days of the receipt of the ticket.

 

Cars receiving second (or beyond) tickets for failure to purchase a parking permit may be booted or towed at the owners expense until a valid permit is purchased.

 

Enforcement of the parking regulations (with the exception of parking permits) will be suspended during the period from 5:00 p.m. on Friday through 7:00 a.m. on Monday, as well as during events that draw a large number of visitors to the campus. However, the prohibition of parking in fire lanes, unauthorized use of accessible parking spaces, and moving violations will be enforced at all times.

 

Fines & Appeals 

A person receiving a citation must pay the fine(s) within 10 working days of the date of issue. Fines may be paid at the Bursars Office located in the ELC during normal business hours or online at www.permitsales.net/SpaldingUniversity. When a person believes the citation is unjust and not in keeping with University Parking Regulations, that person may appeal the citation to Campus Safety in writing within five (5) class/work days subsequent to date of issue. The student, faculty, or staff member may choose to meet with the Campus Safety Manager to discuss their citation prior to a written appeal.

 

All appeals must include the name and e-mail address of the person requesting the appeal, the violation being appealed, and the reason(s) why the citation is being appealed. All appeal decisions will be emailed to the appealing party within three (3) working days of the hearing. Decisions will not be given at the hearing. The applicable fine for denied appeals must be paid within 10 days of the date of the Appeal Decision Letter.
