Parking violations carry fines from $15-$250. Vehicles that have been issued multiple citations, paid or unpaid, are subject to being immobilized or towed away at the owner’s/operator’s expense. Vehicles that have received multiple citations will receive a $50 Escalation Fee in addition to the base fine. Certain infractions include paying for damages in addition to the fine, reporting to the Dean of Students or Human Resources, and further disciplinary action. The University reserves the right to revoke an individual's parking privileges due to excessive citations.

SEPTA lots are monitored and enforced by SEPTA, and you must contact SEPTA regarding any infractions or towing occurring on these lots.

Persons committing any act of commission or omission intentionally designed to deceive a member of the Public Safety Department for the purpose of obtaining parking or access to campus may be referred for internal disciplinary action through the Dean of Students Office or Human Resources. These acts include, but are not limited to, providing false information to obtain a permit, lying to a gate officer, and forging or altering a permit.

Parking citations are issued to employees and students alike for the purpose of helping ensure proper use and management of the University’s parking resources. Adherence to campus traffic and parking rules, as well as timely payment of parking fines, may be taken into account when reviewing an employee’s overall performance annually and determining future pay increases.

The Parking Office is located in Garey Hall.
