The operation of a motor vehicle on this campus is a privilege, and the University reserves the right to restrict, suspend or revoke this privilege for just cause. Failure to have read the guidelines governing all motor vehicles on the campus of East Stroudsburg University shall not constitute a valid excuse for non-compliance.
Registration of a vehicle in no way guarantees that a parking space convenient for the individual will be available. Consider giving yourself extra time as the responsibility for finding a legal space rests with the motor vehicle operator. Extra time to walk or ride the shuttle bus may be necessary. Being prepared to spend an additional 10 to 15 minutes getting to your destination once you arrive on campus may help you be on time and less stressed.
Lack of a parking space close to your destination, mechanical problems, inclement weather or other problems do not justify parking violations.
Students, faculty and staff members are responsible for parking tickets issued to vehicles they register for a parking permit. When the vehicle is not registered, the University will assign parking tickets to a student, faculty or staff member for vehicles registered in his/her name or to his/her family.
The only vehicles that should be left on campus if you are not staying on campus (this includes students, faculty and staff) during the Thanksgiving, Christmas or Spring breaks should be for University business, athletic away games, or residents granted permission by Residence Life and Housing to remain on campus. Those vehicles must be parked behind Kemp Library in Commuter Lot CR38 as close to the building as possible. Vehicles parked elsewhere on campus may be subject to ticketing and/or towing at the owner/operator’s expense.
During inclement weather, all ESU students with cars on campus are asked to move their vehicles to the following lots in order to enable crews to plow and remove snow: CR38 (behind Kemp Library), CR40 (the Marguerite Street lot), and CR52 and CR53 (the Fine Arts lots).
