Vehicle Operations and Parking Jurisdiction

The University Campus Safety Office is responsible for enforcing traffic and parking regulations on the university campus, as well as providing for the security of the campus. While reasonable efforts are made to ensure the security of parking lots, the university cannot assume responsibility for personally owned vehicles and will not reimburse students and/or parents for damage and/or property loss.

Parking Rules and Regulations are enforced 24 hours a day throughout the calendar year, including all breaks, holidays and summer months. These regulations apply whether or not classes are in session.

All violations may be dealt with through the issuance of a university parking citation.  However, local law enforcement agents may issue handicap violations according to North Carolina law. Fines for university parking citations will be automatically charged to the student’s account. 


Notice of an appeal must be brought to the Parking Services Office, in writing, within 3 school days of receiving the citation.  Appeals will be addressed by the University Traffic Committee. The committee is composed of 2 faculty/staff representatives, 2 students (SGA members appointed by Vice President for Student Life), the Director of Campus Safety, the Director of Facilities Management, and the Parking Administrator.  The Traffic Committee will meet as needed.

Vehicle Registration

Faculty/Staff and students (undergraduate, graduate, professional school and/or special) attending Campbell University and all residents of Campbell-owned housing, who own and/or operate a motor vehicle (including motorcycles and motor scooters) on the campus are required to register their vehicles with Parking Services and properly display the issued permit.


The following general rules apply:

  • All vehicles parked on campus must be registered with Parking Services and display a current permit.
  • The student to whom a permit is issued is responsible for all violations accumulated by that vehicle.
  • Students and Faculty/Staff must re-register if:
    • parking permit is lost or
    • student or faculty/staff changes vehicles.  The old permit must be removed from the initial vehicle and returned to Parking Services to be issued a replacement for the new vehicle at no additional fee.  If a permit is stolen, the student or faculty/staff must come by Parking Services to report the stolen permit and a new permit will be issued at no additional fee.
  • Only the current permit is to be displayed; all others must be removed.
  • A student changing residence halls, apartments, or moving off campus, should remove the old permit and return it to Parking Services to be issued a parking permit corresponding to the new location. This will be done at no additional fee.
  • The employment of a student’s spouse by the university does not affect his/her status for vehicle registration purposes; students must still register vehicles that they own or operate.
  • A student may not drive or park a vehicle on campus that displays a faculty/staff parking permit.
  • You may only register a vehicle that is for your personal use.
  • Students employed by the university as graduate assistants are required to purchase a Student permit and do not qualify for the faculty/staff parking permit.

Unregistered Vehicles

Unregistered vehicles parked on campus without a current, properly displayed, parking permit will be subject to booting on the first offense. If a vehicle is immobilized, all fines must be paid and a parking permit purchased in addition to the $65.00 administrative fee for removal of the boot.  Leaving a note attached to the vehicle, requesting “do not ticket” does not suffice for calling/notifying the Parking office.

Faculty/Staff Registration

Faculty/Staff are required to register their vehicles yearly and must abide by the parking policies. Two vehicles may be registered per faculty/staff employee.  Parking permits are non-transferable.  If you should acquire a different vehicle, other than the one you have registered with the Parking Services Office, you will need to remove the old permit and return to the Parking office to be issued a new permit. 


All students registering a vehicle are required to pay a fee. The amount of the fee is determined by the Board of Trustees and published in the Business Office’s Supplement to the Campbell University Bulletin.  ALL students are limited to one car on campus per year.  Vehicle registration fees will be charged to the student’s account.


Immediately after receipt, parking permits MUST be permanently affixed to motor vehicles as described by the instructions below and, on the permit.

Permits should be placed in one of the following areas:

  • Lower left side of the rear window (driver’s side, bottom of back window).
  • Convertibles only: bottom of left side rear bumper (driver’s side back bumper).

Temporary Permits

Temporary permits may be issued to students and faculty/staff (who have a current permit) at the Parking Services Office, 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. or, the Campus Safety Office, open 24 hours, under the following circumstances: 

  • In the event a vehicle other than the one permanently registered is being used temporarily on campus.

A note affixed to the vehicle is not accepted as a temporary permit. 

Students requesting a temporary permit, who have not already registered a vehicle with Parking Services, can purchase a temporary permit (valid for 1 week) for $25.00.  This amount will be charged to the student’s account.

Visitor/Alumni/Parents and Vendor Parking Passes
