Vehicle Registration and Parking on City Streets

Students, faculty and staff who drive and/or park on campus are required to register their vehicles with the Security Department and to display their parking permit as directed.

Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff permits are issued on a permanent basis.  To obtain a parking permit, please complete the Vehicle Registration form.

Students

Student parking permits are granted by a lottery system, which is controlled by the Residential Life office, prior to the fall semester. Registration for students is $80.00 per semester ($40.00 for motorcycles).  Students who received parking permits are expected to obey all campus parking regulations and to park only in the designated student parking areas.  Students who were not awarded a parking permit will need to park their vehicles on the city streets.

City Parking Regulations

The City of Beloit alternate overnight parking ordinance requires parking on the even numbered side of the street on even numbered calendar days and parking on the odd side of the street on odd numbered days. This is always the case unless otherwise posted by official traffic signs. Further details about this ordinance are provided in the student handbook.

Enforcement hours for alternate overnight parking are from 12:00 midnight to 7:00 a.m. Your parking should be in accordance with the hours of enforcement. Example: You park your vehicle on Sept. 1 at 7:00 p.m. until class the next day. You should park on the even numbered side of the street as enforcement will occur after midnight (the next day’s date) which would be Sept. 2. You also need to remember that some months have 31 days in them and if you park your car on the 31st you need to park on the odd side of the street since the next day is the 1st.

Campus Parking Regulations

Parking in fire lanes, anywhere the curbs are painted yellow, or in areas designated as "No Parking" by signs is prohibited.
