All students, faculty, staff, are required to have a valid parking permit, per vehicle, affixed to the outside of the rear window in the lower corner (driver’s side). Permits are valid for the entirety of the current school year. All parking lots between 6:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, require either an Indiana Tech parking permit or an Indiana Tech temporary parking permit. Weekends and after 4:00 pm enforcement is limited to residential parking areas, reserved, loading zones, handicap, and fire lanes.
Between the hours of 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., all visitors on campus will need to obtain a temporary permit to avoid potential citations. Temporary permits may be emailed in advance for certain events but is obtainable in person at the Andorfer Security Office and the Abbott Welcome Center. Visitors to residence hall buildings may obtain a permit from the office of student affairs in the Andorfer Commons. Visitor permits allow for parking in any C designated parking lots as shown on the Campus Map. Permit should be placed on the passenger side dashboard with the expiration date visible from the outside.
There are handicap parking spots in each parking lot near a building entrance. If a vehicle in a handicap parking space does not have the appropriate handicap designation, it will receive a citation and is subject to being towed at the owner’s expense. Vehicles with a handicap permit are not required to have a parking permit when parked in a handicap stall.
While parking on campus:
- You are required to drive carefully and follow traffic rules and regulations.
- You are responsible for all violations committed while your vehicle is in the custody of another person.
- You may be held responsible for parking violations of your guests on campus.
- You are responsible for any citations issued to you or your registered vehicles.
Pay a Parking Citation
To Pay a Parking Citation, have your citation or license plate information readily available. Use the “Pay Notices” section and follow the prompts to pay or appeal the citation. See the Parking Enforcement section for more information regarding parking citations.
New Vehicle or Lost Permit
If a permit is lost or stolen, report the loss at firstname.lastname@example.org. A parking representative will contact you to process the claim. Permits that were lost in the mail or stolen are usually replaced at no cost to the permit holder.
Permits may take up to three weeks to arrive via standard mail. Permits that were not received after ordering should be reported as lost.
If you are planning to change vehicles, the new vehicle should be added to your permit store account before requesting a replacement permit.
Temporary Permits for Current Permit Holders
If you have ordered a permit and it is pending or has not arrived yet, you may print out your temporary version through your permit store account. A temporary permit should also be sent to the email address that is listed on your account. If at any point during the academic year, your vehicle is in repair or if you have a different vehicle short term, you may request a temporary permit from Safety & Security or Donna Sark in Student Affairs.
Lockouts, Battery Jumps, and Immobile Vehicles
Safety & Security does not have the capability to perform lockout recovery. If your keys become locked inside your vehicle, please contact a local locksmith or towing company capable of performing lockouts.
Safety & Security does have a 12 volt jump starter. If your car battery has died, please speak to a Safety & Security officer for assistance. You will be required to sign a waiver before the jump is performed. While safety staff can provide guidance, jumps will need to be performed by the operator of the vehicle.
Any vehicle on campus that cannot start or is otherwise immobile must be reported to Safety & Security, this includes flat tires. The expected time to correct the issue is 24 hours but an extension can be granted on a case by case basis.
