  • Student vehicles may be parked in the paved lot. Students may not park in areas clearly signed as “Reserved” or labeled “No Parking,” nor on campus sidewalks or in a manner that blocks a campus sidewalk.
  • Motorcycles/Mopeds must use regular parking spaces. They may not be parked on sidewalks or in/near areas labeled “No Parking.”
