Parking & Bicycle Information

New Parking Policy

The parking policy has changed during the summer of 2024. Please review all information and campus parking map for changes that reflect new policies.

The university's Campus Public Safety office's primary concern is campus facility users' safety and well-being. The following policies outline campus parking and traffic regulations in an attempt to familiarize and explain safety protocols to the George Fox University community. Adjustments to regulations may occur and may be publicized; it is the duty of the vehicle owners to be aware of such changes.

Every vehicle on campus grounds is subject to these regulations and may be cited with a fine if found in violation. Parking violations occur against a vehicle and not a particular driver; the registered owner is responsible for all infractions cited against their vehicle.

The university does not take responsibility nor cover loss due to theft, acts of nature, and other unforeseen disasters that may damage someone's vehicle. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner and their insurance provider to seek restitution for loss. The responsibility is the same as being parked in a parking lot at a store or other event.

More information about parking citations and enforcement can be found on the Parking Citations and Enforcement page.


Parking FAQ

Fire regulations require that this area be kept clear at all times. Students and staff will be allowed to pull into the fire lane as long as they stay in their vehicle. If vehicles are left unattended, they will be ticketed.

The permit must be placed directly on the vehicle rear window glass or bumper (and not on top of another permit) so that it will stay in place for the entire school year. When scotch tape and suction cups are used, some students remove their permits and park in restricted areas. Identifying these vehicles adds to labor cost and frequently involves help from agencies off-campus. “Sticking” the permit to the window or bumper eliminates this problem. The permits have been designed to be removable.

The permit associates you with the university. Without it, anyone could park on campus. If you ordered a permit and it is not displayed, the campus safety officer has no way to know that you are registered until the citation is processed. In that case, you won’t be charged for an unregistered vehicle, but the charges for non-placement and any other violation will remain.

Special parking accommodation is available for injured students. Contact Campus Public Safety for details.
