Student Regulations

Students who purchase a virtual permission for their car/truck may park their motorcycle on campus in designated motorcycle parking spaces ONLY after emailing Parking & Transportation Services to inform us of the motorcycle license plate number and state of registration.

The permission does not allow for both a motorcycle and vehicle to be parked on campus at the same time.

Students who do NOT drive a four-wheeled vehicle to campus may purchase a motorcycle-only virtual permission.

Motorcycle permits cost $100 and are valid for the academic year.

Observe the following rules when bringing a motorcycle to campus:

  • If an engine is rated over 49cc and requires a license plate, it is considered a motorcycle. Scooters/mopeds that do not require a license plate are considered bicycles and are regulated accordingly.
  • Motorcycles may not park at bicycle racks on campus.
  • Motorcycles may not use a car space.
  • Motorcycles may park in any hashed area in their assigned lot/structure that does not have “no moto” symbol on ground.
  • Do not require plate to face drive aisle.
