In order to accommodate our student, faculty, staff, and visitor parking needs, Indiana Tech has adopted a detailed parking policy. All students, faculty, and staff are required to have a valid parking permit affixed to the front window in the lower corner farthest removed from the driver’s position. Permits must be renewed annually.
There are two types of student permits available: residential and commuter. Each permit has designated lots in which they are valid. In addition, the parking lot entrances are clearly marked with the specific permit designation.
Parking permit applications are approved by the Facilities Management department and issued by The Permit Store. Temporary permits are issued as needed by Facilities Management. A new parking permit is required for all faculty, staff, students, and contract employees at the Fort Wayne campus each academic year. Permits may be purchased beginning July 1 each year. If you are driving a rental vehicle, you will need a temporary permit.
Between the hours of 8am to 4pm, visitors may park in the Andorfer, Abbott, West Campus, or Soccer Field North parking lots as well as any specific spaces marked as visitor parking. At all other times, visitors may use any parking lot except those designated as R/W which are located next to a residence hall and are listed as a premium parking lot. The designated visitor spaces are reserved to ensure that our guests have parking available near the buildings they are most likely to visit. Student, staff and faculty vehicles parked in spaces marked as visitor parking will receive a ticket.
There are handicap parking spots in each parking lot. If a vehicle in a handicap parking space does not have the appropriate handicap designation, it will receive a ticket and is subject to tow at owner’s expense.
Parking rules are enforced 24 hours a day for residential parking lots. The commuter lots are monitored by permit type 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Premium parking lots and designated reserved spaces such as visitor or handicap are monitored and enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Information for payment and for disputing purposes can be found on the back of each parking citation. Additional information on parking policies can be found in Techniques, the Student Handbook.
