The University reserves the right to immobilize (boot) or to remove and impound abandoned vehicles or any vehicle found on campus:

  • That have three or more unpaid parking tickets
  • With an unauthorized, altered or revoked permit
  • Without a license plate
  • With an expired license plate/vehicle registration
  • Parking in driveways, fire lanes, reserved or service vehicle spaces, and reserved lots
  • In repeated violation of parking guidelines
  • Blocking a loading dock or trash dumpster
  • Parked in an area designated as a construction zone or in an area which requires emergency repairs
  • Parked in such a way as to constitute a hazard to vehicular or pedestrian traffic or to the movement and operation of emergency equipment

The owner will be responsible for costs involved in removing, impounding and storing such a vehicle, including any expenses charged by the towing company as a “show-up” fee or road service fee.  Boots will not be removed until all fines/fees owed to the University have been satisfied.

  • The owner or operator will have 72 hours from the date the immobilizing device was placed on the vehicle to make payment in full for any unpaid tickets plus an additional fee for the removal of the immobilizing device
  • The boot removal ticket fines are as follows: $50 for the first offense; $100 for the second offense; and $150 for the third offense within an academic year (each additional offense after the third is also $150)
  • If the total amount of fines and fees are not paid within 72 hours, the vehicle may be towed off campus
  • The owner/operator of the vehicle will pay the towing and storage fees at the office of the designated tower
  • The owner/operator must first report to the University Police Department or Security/Parking Office for a release form prior to the release of the vehicle from the towing company
  • Prior to receiving the release form all fines/fees owed to the University must be paid
  • Any person who shall tamper with, damage, deface, remove or attempt to remove any device used to immobilize a vehicle which has been booted by the University Police or Security, or who shall move or attempt to move the booted vehicle before the release of the vehicle has been officially secured, shall be reported to Student Conduct, may be prosecuted and shall be required to make full restitution for damages caused by such actions

University Police are aimed at providing a safe environment where our community can thrive. In case of an emergency, please dial 911.
