Student Parking Policies
The acceptance by any student of the privilege of parking a motor vehicle on campus also constitutes acceptance of the responsibility to see that no vehicle owned or registered in his or her name is parked or driven in violation of these regulations. Vehicle registration shall be made at the same time a student registers for classes. If the student is unable to complete the vehicle registration procedures at the beginning of any semester, he or she must register his or her vehicle in the security office, located in the lower level of Hayfield House, before the vehicle is operated on Penn State Wilkes-Barre. (Download the registration form here.) Student cars in a carpool must display the “pool permit” in the window so that it is plainly visible. This permit must be marked “pool” and must also show the license numbers of the cars that are authorized for the pool.
Parking and traffic regulations for students are in effect at all times. A detailed statement of student parking regulations is given to each student at registration. Copies of these regulations may be secured at anytime in the security office, located in the lower level of Hayfield House.
Failure to register a vehicle entails a fine of $20 per offense. Repeated violations of parking rules and regulations may lead to disciplinary action.
If it becomes necessary for a student to leave his or her car on campus between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., he or she should obtain permission from the coordinator of Safety and Security by submitting a written request. This request should include his or her reason for leaving the vehicle, and the year, model, color and license number of the vehicle.
Parking regulations are in effect on the first day of class each semester. Permits must be hung on the rear view mirror as described in the regulations.
Students must park in the designated parking areas located in the general parking lot to the left of University Drive at the main entrance to the campus and the lower level adjacent to the Bell Center for Technology. Please refer to the campus map for parking, including visitors and handicapped areas.
