Parking Regulations

Parking Designations

Permits are issued to any requesting member of the Wilson College community to park on a first come, first serve basis for designated spaces. When spaces are filled for that permit, permit holder must move to other designated spaces for that permit on campus. Issuance of a permit does not guarantee availability of a space in lots designated for that permit, nor entitle the holder of a permit to park illegally in other lots or reserved spaces. Hankey Center Lot (Lot J) is considered overflow for all permit types and may be used by any permit holder or guest.

Any reserved spaces in any lot are for the exclusive use of the persons or offices assigned to those spaces. Handicap designated spaces are for any person displaying a state-issued person with disability placard, regardless of campus pass/permit type although we strongly encourage individuals to park in assigned lots if able.

Faculty/Staff lots are restricted for faculty/staff permits only Monday through Friday, 7am-5pm, during the academic year. Commuter students may use these lots Monday through Friday 5pm-7am during the academic year and as needed on weekends and during summer sessions. Commuters in faculty/staff lots outside of those times are subject to ticketing and applicable enforcement.

Residential lots are restricted for residential permits only at all times during the academic year.  Residents may park in faculty/staff and commuter lots after 9pm and on weekends, but must remove their vehicles from non-residential lots prior to the 7am weekday deadline or be subject to ticketing and applicable enforcement.

 

Overflow parking for all permits and visitors is always available in the Hankey lot (J).

Community members placed on Hankey Lot restriction for excessive violations will be required to turn in their normal permit and will be issued a pink permit for the duration of their restriction.

Individuals with a pink permit are restricted to the following designated areas at all times, without exception:

  • Lot J (by Hankey Center)*
Unrestricted Lots

Unrestricted lots exist throughout campus and are meant for events or gathering purposes. They can also serve a dual purpose of providing overflow parking spaces. There is no overnight parking in any designated unrestricted lots. Any person, permit or not, can park in these lots as long as they do not leave their vehicle overnight.

The following lots are unrestricted:

  • Lot O (by the Field House)
  • Lot Q (by Kitts Outdoor Arena)
  • Lot P (by the Soccer/Lacrosse & Softball fields)
Equestrian Center Parking

The Equestrian Center parking, while considered unrestricted, does abide by the following regulations to assist in the effective operation of facilities and meeting the needs of its users. These policies are monitored and regulated by the Stables Manager and Campus Security. Any questions about Equestrian Center Parking Policies should be directed to the Stables Manager. Any disputes regarding enforcement or application of the policy would be reviewed by Parking Committee.

The following people are allowed to park in the lot outside Hawthorne Arena:

  • Wilson College Instructors - this does NOT include student instructors
  • Wilson College Coaches
  • Full Time Staff Members
  • CRP and EFT students
  • Vendors such as Veterinarians, alarm system contractors, etc.
  • Maintenance, grounds, and housekeeping employees here to do work
  • Weekend staff (only while working a weekend shift)

The following will be allowed to park in the Hawthorne lot as long as there is still room for the people above and the privilege is not abused:

  • Night Check person only during night check - not during riding or class times
  • Students doing evening stalls only during their stall shift - not during riding or class times
  • Students who half-lease their horses to Wilson

The area directly in front of the entrance to Hawthorne Arena is handicap parking only at all times. Only those explicitly listed above are permitted to park outside the Hawthorne Arena; no one else may park in this area at any time. This includes students for class, work study, part time employees, and boarders. All other users of the Equestrian Center should park in Lot Q (by Kitts Outdoor Arena) or by the Cook Arena. Do not park at the entrances to the barns, the arenas, or the gray shed for any length of time. This is a hazard if there were an emergency and it blocks the walkways. The veterinarians also need to have access to these parking areas to provide treatment. Please understand that during events or facilities rentals these regulations will have to be adjusted. Those in need of temporary exception due to a legitimate medical issue should see the barn manager. All other medical accommodation requests should refer to the Academic Support Center as described in the Health Issues section below.
