The parking and traffic regulations set forth have been established so that an orderly pattern of motor vehicle control may be achieved. The parking and traffic regulations shall apply to the roadways, parking lots, and sidewalks owned or controlled by St. Bonaventure University.
It is strongly recommended that the following regulations and guidelines be read carefully.
All members of the University community, students, faculty and staff who operate or park an automobile, motor-bike, motorcycle, or any other motor operated vehicle on University property must purchase a current registration decal.
Students must register their motor vehicle within 24 hours of academic registration. No student, faculty or staff shall operate or park a motor vehicle on the campus unless such vehicle is properly registered with the Parking Administration Office. Vehicles can be registered online by going to https://my.sbu.edu/custom/parking. Decals may be picked up 2 business days AFTER registration in the Parking Administration Office, located in Robinson Hall, from 9am to 4pm, Monday through Friday. Current state vehicle registration or temporary registration and University ID will be necessary to obtain a parking decal.
Upon completion of registration, a decal will be issued and must be affixed to the driver’s side rear passenger window. Properly registered motor vehicles must display the CURRENT decal ONLY, all others should be removed. Tickets will be issued to vehicles not registered with the Parking Administration Office.
Should you sell or transfer your registered vehicle or should you no longer be a student or employee of the University, you must remove and return the registered decal to the Parking Administration Office immediately to void the registration. Students, staff, and faculty must remove the permit or parts thereof, and return them to the Parking Administration Office where a new permit will be issued free of charge. If the permit is not returned, individuals will be required to pay a fee for another permit. Decals are non-transferable. Any citations issued to this registered permit are the responsibility of the individual who purchased the permit.
The cost for a parking permit is $100 for the academic year (September-August). Permits must be purchased for the full year. However, if you are graduating in December and return your permit to the Parking Administration Office before the spring semester begins, you will receive a refund of half the purchase price.
Please note that having a permit DOES NOT guarantee a parking spot.
- Should your vehicle become disabled, you must contact the Office of Safety and Security immediately and obtain a “Disabled Vehicle” permit, which must be displayed on the dashboard of the disabled vehicle. A note attached to the vehicle will not be accepted; you must notify Safety and Security.
- Disabled vehicles must be repaired or removed within 12 hours after breakdown occurs. If the disabled vehicle is creating a hazard or blocking traffic, the vehicle will have to be moved immediately.
Temporary permits are available at the Office of Safety and Security, Robinson Hall room 122, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Temporary permits are issued to students, faculty and staff for NO MORE THAN ONE MONTH (30 days) PER ACADEMIC YEAR. Vehicles parked on campus beyond a total of thirty days are required to have a parking decal displayed.
