Vendor, Business, and Contractor Parking

All contractor and vendor vehicles must display a university parking permit. The Vendor (VBC) Permit allows company-owned branded vehicles to use loading docks and service vehicle parking spaces as the primary places for parking while working on their project. Non-branded and personal vehicles may use the Duck Pond Lot as their primary place for parking while working on their project. The VBC permit allows vehicles to use F/S spaces for up to two hours, and loading docks and service vehicle parking spaces as the primary locations for deliveries while performing their service.

The VBC Permit registration form is available at Parking Services at 505 Beamer Way and online. The completed form must be submitted in-person at Parking Services.

VBC Permit Type | Amount

Annual | $650
Semi-Annual | $330
Quarterly | $175
Daily | $10

Contractors for Capital Construction Projects

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

Regulations

Vendor delivery vehicles may use loading docks and service vehicle parking spaces, and F/S spots up to two hours as the primary locations for deliveries while performing their service. Vendor vehicles that need temporary access to landlocked buildings may drive on designated sidewalks and park in designated VBC pull-off areas. While designated sidewalks may be used to access landlocked buildings, no parking is permitted on any roadway, sidewalk, or turf.

VBC pull–off parking spaces in landlocked 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.

Branded contractor vehicles may use loading docks and service vehicle parking spaces as the primary places for parking while working on a project. Personal and non-branded vehicles must park in the Duck Pond Overflow Lot. Branded vehicles that need temporary access to landlocked buildings can drive on designated sidewalks and park in designated pull-off areas. While designated sidewalks may be used to access landlocked 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 projects. No permit is needed within a fenced construction site.

The Parking Services reserves the right to restrict contractor vehicles parking at crowded long–term construction sites. In the event of this restriction,  Parking Services will designate a perimeter lot for employee parking. Transportation to and from the worksite will be the 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 10 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.

  • Appeals must be made in writing on a Parking Services Appeals Form within 10 calendar days of ticket issuance. Failure to formally appeal a citation within 10 days of ticket issuance negates any right to further address the violation.
  • Parking in areas other than parking lots will require Vendor, Contractor permits 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week.
