27.1 GENERAL.
The Department of Parking and Transportation oversees the operation, maintenance, and construction of all parking facilities on the main campus. Parking and Transportation operates three main Parking units: Parking Services, Parking Facilities Operations, and Commuter Programs.

27.2 FACULTY/STAFF PARKING.
Applications for parking privileges for faculty and staff members are available on the Parking and Transportation web site and at the Parking Services Office in the IMU ramp. All applications for new parking must be signed by the departmental executive officer and forwarded to the Parking Services Office. Faculty or staff members may have parking charged as a pre-tax payroll deduction. Persons not on the University payroll must remit parking fees with their application. Parking assignments to lots are made on a space-available basis, and some lot assignments are made on a priority basis. Unusual parking requests, or circumstances which require special assignment of space, should be explained fully when an application for parking is made. Requests for parking based on a disability must be submitted with a medical statement clearly stating the circumstances and proof of possession of a state parking permit for the disabled.

Appropriate permits are mailed to each individual whose application is approved. Faculty and staff are expected to be familiar with and to abide by the parking regulations. Questions concerning parking should be directed to the Parking Services Division located at the IMU Ramp.

For faculty/staff parking assignment policy, see V-27.6 below.

27.3 PARKING VIOLATIONS.
The Department of Parking and Transportation is responsible for the enforcement of parking regulations on campus. The department also originates the billing for parking violations and coordinates appeal procedures through the Faculty/Staff Appeals Committee and the Student Traffic Court. Appeals on parking violations written for members of the general public are handled administratively. All violation appeals are directed to the Parking Services Office for distribution.

27.4 CONFERENCE AND SPECIAL EVENT PARKING.
Upon request, the Department of Parking and Transportation will, where possible, make special parking arrangements for conferences, institutes, short courses, and athletic or other special events which have not been arranged through the Center for Conferences. A fee may be charged to cover costs. It is recommended that the charge for parking be included in any registration or attendance fee. To secure the necessary parking permits and space, a requisition stating the number of permits needed and the dates should be sent to the Parking Services Office. Parking for conferences and special events arranged through the Center for Conferences is handled through that office.

27.5 PARKING FOR CONTRACTORS AND CONSULTANTS.
Unless otherwise specified by contract, contractors doing work within the University campus are not allowed to use University student, faculty, and staff parking facilities. Space for parking, other than that which a contractor can utilize within the site of the construction work, must be arranged for in advance. Permits for laborers on the campus will be issued after the payment of parking fees commensurate with those charged to University staff. Consultants not on the University payroll but doing work for University departments may be issued parking permits on a space-available basis upon payment of fees commensurate with those charged University staff.

27.6 PARKING ASSIGNMENT POLICY.
The policies governing faculty/staff parking assignments have been designed to balance a concern for fairness with the functional needs of the University. To ensure fairness, faculty/staff parking facilities have first been allocated among the numerous work sites around campus in an effort to provide reasonable access to most employees.
