Lined Parking Spaces
Motor vehicles must be parked within the lined parking spaces. An improperly parked motor vehicle in an adjacent space does not constitute an excuse for straddling the painted line. One motor vehicle (including motorcycles) is permitted per marked space.
No Parking Areas
Parking of motor vehicles is not permitted in the following areas:
- Walks, paths, and lawn areas
- Any area not marked with parking lines or, if not paved, as a parking lot
- Areas of diagonal lines/loading zones/fire lane
- Areas where signs have been posted indicating “no parking”
- Areas that block egress or ingress of buildings, parking lots, and/or roadways
- Roadways/side of roadways on campus not specifically marked with parking spaces including Sunset Lane, South Drive, St. Anne Drive, the rotary, access road next to AMCAT Field, and the area between Socquet House and the Science Building.
- Parking of bicycles is not permitted in any area not specifically designated for bicycle parking. This includes inside any building, (except in residence hall rooms where the storage of the bicycle does not block ingress/egress from the room). Parking, storing or leaving bicycles as to impede or block the entrance to or exit from any building, including ramps, stairways, and curb cuts, is prohibited.
Accessible Parking and Temporary Accessible Parking Requests
There are marked parking spaces on campus reserved for persons with disabilities. Persons parking in marked accessible spaces must display the appropriate decal or plate issued by the Registry of Motor Vehicles or other appropriate agency. The person for whom the decal or plate is issued must be in the vehicle or being actively picked up or dropped off.
A person wishing to be considered for an on-campus temporary accessible parking pass, he/she must present appropriate medical documentation to the Director of Student Success, Dennis Vanasse, Trinity East, first floor. Temporary permits will be issued to those who qualify.
As necessary in preparation for, during, and/or after a snow storm, Physical Plant may require vehicles to move from designated parking areas to facilitate snow removal. Bicycles must not be parked, stored, or left as to impede snow removal from roadways or walkways. Notices will be issued by the same means as any weather cancellation notification, such as text messages and emails, and will be placed on the front doors of the residence halls and, as appropriate, on other campus buildings. Cooperation with these requests is expected so that parking areas and walkways may be cleared. During a snow event, plan on moving your vehicle to the lot east of (behind) Madonna Hall. Motor vehicles and/or bicycles impeding snow removal efforts may be subject to ticketing with a minimum fine of $25. The College is not responsible for damage to bicycles parked, stored, or left outside during snow removal efforts.
