The following regulations are approved by the President of the University and are enforceable 24 hours per day throughout the calendar year.
These regulations have been approved to best utilize roadways and parking areas for the benefit of University of Nevada, Reno students, staff, faculty, and visitors; to assure access at all times for ambulances and firefighting equipment; and to attempt to protect all persons on the campus from injury by vehicles.
The operation of a motor vehicle or bicycle on university property is a privilege granted by the university and is not an inherent right of any faculty/staff member, student or visitor and can be denied or revoked for cause at any time.
No motor vehicle or bicycle shall be operated, parked, or otherwise used on the campus unless in strict conformity with these regulations. By parking on campus you are agreeing to abide by the regulations set forth in this document.
The Parking and Transportation Services Department and the University Police Department are authorized to enforce the University Parking Regulations.
All motor vehicles used on university property shall be officially registered with the Parking and Transportation Services Department and shall properly display a valid University of Nevada, Reno parking permit. All faculty, staff, and students are eligible to register a motor vehicle and obtain a valid parking permit. Registration/permit fees, as approved by the President, shall be charged.
The Parking and Transportation Services Department is not responsible for vehicle or property theft, vehicle damage, or vandalism incurred on campus.
The Shuttle Bus Passenger Policy is strictly enforced on all campus shuttles.
Permit Parking Areas require proper permits to be displayed Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., throughout the entire year, unless otherwise specified.
Citations may be issued to persons or vehicles found to be in violation of the Parking Regulations. Upon the accumulation of a third delinquent citation, the parking permit shall be suspended from the offending vehicle and campus parking privileges withheld until such time as the fees for all outstanding citations have been paid. Fines for citations issued for any violation shall be payable within 14 calendar days from the date issued. On the 15th calendar day, any unpaid citation is considered delinquent and the fine will double. Citation fines may be paid at the Parking Office with cash, by check made payable to the Board of Regents, or with a valid major credit card. Payments can also be made online at: www.unr.edu/parking.
A person is liable for all citations incurred on all vehicles owned, operated or registered. Administrative procedures are established to collect outstanding fees. Any costs incurred in the collecting of fees or delinquent fines may be added to the amount for collection. Persons with unpaid citations may be placed on a fee hold list. When placed on a fee hold list, registration, records and transcripts are withheld, until the outstanding balance is brought to zero.
Any vehicle on university property which is in violation of university parking regulations is subject to being booted and/or towed. A "Parking Privileges Suspended" citation will be issued to a vehicle upon the accumulation of a third delinquent citation and the vehicle will be booted and/or towed without notification at owner's expense. Violators shall be subject to towing and/or storage charges assessed by the tow company. If your vehicle is booted or towed, contact the Parking and Transportation Services Department immediately
The University of Nevada, Reno Parking and Traffic Board is representative of faculty, staff, and students. The board reports to the Vice President of Administration and Finance and the board meets regularly during the academic year to recommend parking fees and regulations governing parking on campus, and to make decisions regarding parking-related appeals from the campus community, parking lot changes, designations and time of use may be made and enforced after publication in the student newspaper, campus faculty and staff newsletter and other communication devices in used on the campus ten (10) days after the first date of notification. The responsibility of finding a legal parking space rests with the motor vehicle operator. Inability to locate a legal space in a parking lot or area is not justification for incorrect parking.
Parking and Traffic Board members are asked to serve a three-year term to provide consistency on the board. The board consists of an appointed Chairman, two faculty members (one from the Faculty Senate and one at-large member), two classified employees from the SEC, two undergraduate students from ASUN, one graduate student from GSA, and one student from Residential Life and Housing. In addition, the Director of Parking and Transportation serves on the board as ex-officio.
The Director of the Parking and Transportation Services Department provides the leaders of the Faculty Senate, SEC, ASUN, and GSA with a request for recommendations regarding membership to the Parking and Traffic Board, when a three-year term has expired and a new member needs to be appointed. The Faculty Senate appoints one of its own members to serve on the parking board to report back to the Senate on each meeting. The second at-large member is determined based upon a list of volunteers that have indicated interest in serving on the board. The list of individuals who have indicated interest is submitted to the Director of Parking and Transportation Services. The Director reviews the list with the VP of Administration and Finance and an individual from the list is selected to represent the faculty-at-large. The SEC, ASUN, GSA and Residential Life and Housing representatives are recommended by the leaders of each organization, and the VP of Administration and Finance provides final approval of all appointments. For a copy of the meeting minutes, please contact Michelle Horton at email@example.com.
The responsibility of finding a legal parking space rests with the motor vehicle operator. Inability to locate a legal space in a parking lot or area, or lack of knowledge of the parking regulations is not justification for incorrect parking. Any citation issued may be appealed within 15 calendar days from the date the citation was issued, online or on an appeal form available through the Parking and Transportation Services Department, but only after a deposit equal to the fine has been made. If the appeal is granted, the deposit will be refunded; if the appeal is denied, the matter may be further appealed in person to the Parking and Traffic Board. If this latter appeal is granted by the board, the deposit will then be refunded. If the appeal is denied, the deposit will be used to pay the fines. Failure to make a timely appeal constitutes waiving the right to appeal, and no delinquent citation or fee will be considered for appeal.
