Ignorance of traffic regulations is no excuse for improper parking or other offenses. It is specifically understood that the operation of a motor vehicle on campus is a privilege. It in no way implies any University responsibility for the motor vehicle or its contents for any situation resulting from bringing and operating the motor vehicle on campus. This includes any damage caused by moving or towing a vehicle in violation of parking or traffic regulations.
Motor vehicles must be removed from the University parking lots at the close of the semester. All motor vehicles remaining after this time will be considered abandoned and will be towed.
All motor vehicles left in any University parking lot without valid state registration plates will be considered abandoned and will be towed.
Should your vehicle become disabled, you must obtain a Disabled Vehicle Permit from the Office of Safety and Security (122 Robinson Hall) immediately and display it on the disabled vehicle. A note attached to the vehicle will not be accepted.
Disabled vehicles must be repaired or removed within 72 hours after breakdown occurs. If the disabled vehicle is creating a hazard or blocking traffic, the vehicle must be moved immediately.
Temporary permits are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the Office of Safety & Security, 122 Robinson Hall.
Temporary permits are issued to students and employees for NO MORE THAN ONE MONTH (30 days) PER ACADEMIC YEAR. Vehicles parked on campus beyond a total of 30 days are required to have a current Parking Decal displayed.
Students without a current Parking Decal who have a motor vehicle on campus temporarily must obtain a Temporary Permit for a cost of $10 per week (proof of vehicle registration required).
If a student already posesses a current Parking Decal, there is no cost for a short-term Temporary permit.
If a student with a current Parking Decal is permanently changing vehicles, the Parking Decal must be scraped off and returned to the Parking Administration Office in order to receive a free replacement Parking Decal for the current vehicle. Contact email@example.com with any questions.
Visitor Parking Permit
Visitor permits are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the Office of Safety & Security, 122 Robinson Hall.

Students who host guests with vehicles, MUST register the guest's vehicle with the Office of Safety and Security. The host student must present their SBU ID and the guest must provide the vehicle registration in order to obtain a Student Visitor parking permit. Student Visitors are required to park in Student Parking (printable map available here: http://www.sbu.edu/campus-life.aspx?id=25132) and are subject to the same rules and regulations as a registered vehicle owner.
Handicap Parking Permit
You are eligible for a Handicap Parking Permit if you have one or more disabilities that impair your mobility and have a vehicle registered with the Parking Administration Office. A student or employee in need of a handicap parking accommodation should report to Health Services with a physician’s recommendation indicating the diagnosis and length of time the accommodation will be needed. Only upon approval from the Director of Health Services will Safety and Security issue a Handicap Parking Permit.
NOTE: Campus Handicap Parking Permits are only valid on the St. Bonaventure University campus.
