All University of Findlay students are permitted to have a motor vehicle on campus regardless of class standing. Students who wish to park in campus parking lots or on any campus owned property must register each vehicle with the Office of Campus Safety, located in first floor Lovett Hall. Registration must be completed within the first five days of a semester or within three days of bringing the vehicle campus.
Students are responsible for reporting any change of license plate number(s) during the academic year. The University assumes no responsibility for vehicles or their contents while vehicles are parked on University controlled property.
How to Register Online for Students
You'll want to login to the student parking permit registration form
using your UFnet Account user name and password. Complete the form accurately, and submit it. You will then pick up your permit at the Campus Safety Office during the first week of classes or after registering during the semester.
How to Register Online for Faculty and Staff
The student parking decal must be displayed on the rear windshield in the lower left corner and in a prominent place on motorcycles, motorbikes and other types of motor vehicles so that they can be easily seen. All students must produce a valid student ID card when registering.
Faculty/Staff hang tags are to be displayed on the rear view mirror facing forward in plain view.
Parking and traffic regulations are enforced at all times. The campus speed limit is 10 miles per hour. Restricted and reserved parking areas are signed accordingly. All lots are striped to keep them orderly. Between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. yellow striped spaces are reserved for faculty and staff only, Blue stripes are for commuters only, and White stripes are for resident student parking only. The responsibility of finding a legitimate parking space rests with the driver.
