  • Parking is not permitted on the roadway, next to the curbing on the roadway, in or about the entrance to the building, or any other areas designated as NO PARKING. All yellow marks on curbing indicate NO PARKING ZONES.
  • Parking is prohibited at all times on grass plots, tree plots, or any other place where parking would mar the landscape of the campus, create a safety hazard, or interfere with the use of the College facility.
  • Traffic and parking signs should be obeyed at all times. Posted campus speed limits should be strictly adhered to, especially when approaching congested areas. All vehicles shall be parked in such a manner so as not to occupy more than one regular parking stall.
