General Information

Parking and traffic regulations established in this brochure apply to all Alabama campuses.  Procedures may vary at the Dothan, Montgomery, and Phenix City campuses.

Objectives

Parking privileges are provided under established regulations that are designed to facilitate the work of the University.  For the safety and convenience of all concerned, the enforcement and administration of regulations governing motor vehicles on campus shall apply to visitors, students, faculty, staff, and all others employed on the campus.  All student and employee (faculty and staff) permits expire August 1st annually.

Registration of Vehicles on All Campuses

All vehicles operated by faculty/staff and students must be properly registered in accordance with these regulations.

Registering your motor vehicle is part of the academic registration process at the beginning of each semester.  A current vehicle registration/tag receipt is required.  After fall semester registration you must register the vehicle the day you arrive on campus.  No one is exempt from getting a parking permit.   Registering another person’s vehicle is prohibited.  Students enrolling in evening, weekend classes and internships must register their vehicles.   Visitors are required to obtain a “Visitor Permit” from the University Police Department.

Persons substituting for a faculty or staff member should notify the University Police Department and obtain a temporary permit on the day of arrival.

Temporary permits are available at the University Police Department for the convenience of those who will bring a vehicle on the campus for short periods of time.

Regulations – General Provisions

All vehicles must come to a complete stop at intersections where stop signs are posted.  A motorist must give right-of-way to pedestrians.

Pedestrians have the right-of-way at all crosswalks.  Vehicles must yield to pedestrians in the crosswalks.

Unnecessary noise from horns, radios, and mufflers is strictly prohibited.

No parking at any time on yellow curbs or in No Parking areas.

No parking is permitted on unpaved areas of the campus unless the area is designated for parking.  

Motor vehicles must be parked within the markers in all campus parking areas.  Parking on or over a line, curb, or backing into or pulling through a parking space is a violation of regulations.

Parallel parking, where permitted, must be on the right side of the street.

Students and employees parking in a prohibited zone or visitor space will be subject to wheel lock at their expense.

Loading zones and service areas are reserved exclusively for service vehicles and Physical Plant activities.

Vehicle owners must provide the University Police Department with their current license plate registration.  When a new tag is issued, owners must also provide this information immediately.

If a vehicle is found on campus in violation of any provisions of these regulations and the identity of the driver cannot be determined, the person in whose name is registered shall be held responsible for the violations committed unless the vehicle is reported stolen before the infractions occur.

Employee reserved or “named” parking spaces will be used by the registered employee only.  These spaces cannot be loaned or given to any other than the registered employee.  Violators are subject to the loss of the reserved parking privilege.

Employees are not authorized to purchase an employee reserved or employee parking permit for anyone other than themselves.  Violators are subject to the University disciplinary process.

The University reserves the right after a reasonable attempt is made to contact the owner, to remove and impound illegally parked or abandoned vehicles and any vehicles found on campus with a permit, with an unauthorized or altered permit, with no license plate or parked in such a way as to constitute a serious hazard to vehicles or pedestrians or to the movement or operation of emergency equipment.  The owner shall be responsible for the costs involved in moving, impounding, and storing such vehicles.  The University shall not be liable for any damage to such vehicle during moving or impounding.

If a vehicle is inoperable and cannot be parked in a designated area, it is the operator’s responsibility to notify the University Police Department immediately.

Driving on sidewalks, lawns, recreation areas, playing fields, or within buildings is prohibited.

Payment of outstanding fines is a prerequisite to completing registration for any term.

Students who accumulate excessive traffic/parking fines during any one semester will be subject to disciplinary action.  This could result in the vehicle being towed and on-campus driving privileges being suspended.

Troy Campus – Zone Parking Information

  • Grey Zone – Faculty/Staff parking only
  • Blue Zone – Special and visitor parking

Responsibility for finding an authorized space rests with the operator of each vehicle.  The lack of space in a certain area, or inclement weather will not alter any of the provisions of the parking regulations.  Timed spaces are provided around campus with a time limit stated on the curb or posted signs.  These spaces may be used to transact University business only.

Additional Permit Information

University Parking permits are required to park at fraternity and sorority houses.

Non-students (spouses/dependents) residing at any University-owned property are required to obtain a parking permit.

  • Illegally parked in a Handicap space or any restricted area.
  • Parking or driving on the grass
