Designated Parking Areas

All vehicles parked on University property must utilize marked spaces. In paved lots, parking spaces are designated by white lines on the roadway and/or yellow markers and numbers painted on the roadway. In temporary (dirt) lots, parking spaces are designated by yellow markers and/or white “PARK” signs with black lines and arrows (vehicles must park between the black lines with the arrows pointing inward at the vehicle.)
