Eckerd’s Office of Campus Safety will no longer accept appeals for parking tickets as of Aug. 26. Charges may be appealed through the Bursar’s Office. Vehicles that fail to register by Sept. 15, 2019, may receive a “Failure to Register” ticket. Vehicles that receive more than three of these tickets may be towed at the owner’s expense.
According to Campus Safety policies, all vehicles brought on campus should be promptly registered online. The resident student fee is $120 and the commuter student fee is $60. Registration requires a valid driver’s license and current vehicle insurance.
Once registration has been processed, the parking fee is charged to the student account and parking decals can be picked up at the Office of Campus Safety. Students need their Eckerd ID or valid driver’s license to pick decals up. Decals should be displayed as directed by campus safety and placed on the vehicle as soon as possible.
Registered vehicles must park in the designated parking spaces, displayed on the campus parking map. Students are not permitted to park in faculty/staff/ executive education lots during the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. Vehicles not parked in the correct space may be fined or even towed. Parking regulations are enforced 24 hours a day, the entire calendar year.
According to the Office of Campus Safety & Security’s Parking Map and Regulations handout, parking-related fines range from $50 for parking outside your designated parking lot to $250 for parking in a disabled space. Vehicles parked in fire lanes, grass, walkways or on unmarked pavement will be towed at the owner’s expense. All parking tickets will be charged to the vehicle owner’s student account.
