Contractors for Capital Construction Projects

No permit is required for parking inside an authorized fenced project site.  

Regulations

Vendor delivery vehicles must use loading docks and service vehicle parking spaces as the primary places for deliveries while performing their service. Vendor vehicles that need temporary access to land–locked buildings may drive on designated sidewalks and park in designated Vendor, Business, Contractor pull–off areas. While designated sidewalks may be used to access land–locked buildings, no parking is permitted on any roadway, sidewalk, or turf.

Vendor, Business, Contractor pull–off parking spaces in land–locked areas use a grid system that allows grass to grow. All pull–off spaces are marked with a Service Vehicle sign. All access routes on sidewalks are designated with Vendor, Business, Contractor Access Route signs.

Business vehicles will be allowed to park in Service Vehicle and Faculty/Staff spaces. Parking is prohibited at loading docks, capital project sites, turf, and in pull–off areas. Business vehicles can not drive on any sidewalks.

Construction contractors’ vehicles must use loading docks and service vehicle parking spaces as the primary places for parking while working on a project. Contractor vehicles that need temporary access to land–locked buildings can drive on designated sidewalks and park in designated pull–off areas. While designated sidewalks may be used to access land–locked buildings, no parking is permitted on any sidewalk. With an additional Turf Permit, contractors will be allowed to park on turf areas while working on their project. No permit is needed within a fenced construction site.

The Office of Parking and Transportation reserves the right to restrict contractor vehicles parking at crowded long–term construction sites. In the event of this restriction, the Office of Parking and Transportation will designate a perimeter lot for employee parking. Transportation to and from the work site will be contractor's responsibility. No equipment or trailers are allowed in any parking lot on–campus.

Enforcement and Implementation

Parking tickets will be issued for rule violations. Repeated violations and/or failure to pay past fines may result in wheel booting or towing. All other university parking rules and regulations are in effect with these permits (e.g., no overnight parking).    

Parking Quick Guide

  • Permits are required to park on-campus from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday–Friday unless signed otherwise. Parking regulations are always in effect, including when classes are not in session.
  • All tickets are payable within 10 calendar days of ticket issuance. After 10 days, a $10 late fee is added to the citation fine.
  • Vehicles that receive five or more tickets in any one semester will be booted. There is a $35 boot removal fee. Individuals must contact the Office of Parking and Transportation to make arrangements for boot removal.
  • Appeals must be made in writing on a Office of Parking and Transportation Appeals Form within 10 calendar days of ticket issuance. Tickets must be paid in full before being placed in appeals. If, after review the ticket is overturned, a refund will be mailed to the appellant. Failure to formally appeal a citation within 10 days of ticket issuance negates any right to further address the violation.
  • A Vendor, Business, Contractor parking permit does not allow parking on the turf. If individuals need to park on the turf, they need to apply for a Turf Permit at the Office of Parking and Transportation.
  • Parking in areas other than parking lots will require Vendor, Business, Contractor permits 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
