All persons desiring to park a vehicle on the IUP campus must register for a parking permit, except for vehicles bearing a disabled plate, DV plate, or a disabled placard. Permits are not required for parking at a pay-by-space machine. Time must be purchased on the pay-by-space machine.
Violation of this provision may result in a $15 fine and/or towing or booting of the vehicle at the owner’s expense. The vehicle may be booted or towed if there are ten or more violations of this provision per permit year.
Ten (10) or more violations for parking without a permit during a permit year, September 1 to August 31, will result in the vehicle being booted, regardless of whether the fines have been paid or not.
Parking permits will be issued by University Parking Services as follows:
The Parking Services Department will issue permits to owners of vehicles according to their status. Permits shall be relinquished upon change of status or address change if boundaries are affected, or if the permit holder leaves the university.
Misuse of a parking permit is defined as using a parking permit obtained by submitting false information, or omitting information to fraudulently obtain a permit.
Attempting to secure a permit with fraudulent information will result in charges being filed for giving false information to a police agency.
Anyone misusing an IUP parking permit will be booted on the first offense. If it is found that the permit is not being misused, there will be no boot fee charged.
Using a stolen parking permit to park on campus will result in having the vehicle booted, the permit confiscated, and charges brought against the offender for receiving stolen property.
Example: Giving a wrong address to obtain a permit, using another person’s permit, altering a permit in any manner, or failing to return a permit if your status changes.
No person shall park a vehicle attended or unattended at any time in any of the following places:
Violations of disabled/handicapped parking may result in a minimum fine of $50 for the first violation, and up to a maximum of $200 for the fourth violation, and booting or towing at owner’s expense for each violation. All other violations will result in a minimum fine of $15 up to a maximum fine of $100 and booting or towing at owner’s expense.
Any vehicle parked in violation of any parking regulation or parked in such a manner as to prevent the reading of a license registration number shall be ticketed and may be booted. Vehicles parked on the streets or in parking lots with one-way traffic shall park in the direction of the authorized flow of traffic.

The fee structure for reserved parking, paid parking, and meter fees and time will be established by the president and approved by the Council of Trustees.

The unloading/loading areas around campus are posted and enforced as “Fifteen or Thirty Minute Loading Zones.” Flashers are required while parking in these areas.
Any vehicle broken down on campus may be issued a temporary parking permit to park for 24 hours, if the vehicle is not in a reserved space or creating a hazard. The broken-down vehicle is expected to be removed within 24 hours. All abandoned vehicles will be processed through a salver. All persons parking on campus lots who vehicles become disabled should report this to the IUP Police, located in University Towers. You will be required to fill out a disabled vehicle report at that time.
