IX.General Information: E. Faculty and Staff Parking

  1. Responsibility for Parking and Control: Campus Safety is responsible for monitoring, enforcing, and controlling traffic and parking on campus.
  2. All motor vehicles on campus are required to be registered.
  3. New Faculty/Staff: The registration process may be completed on the Parking Permit page on the Campus Safety section of MyDenison or in the Campus Safety Office located on the 1st level of the parking garage. You will receive a decal for each vehicle registered. This decal is to be affixed to the left rear bumper of your motor vehicle and entitles you to use any legal parking area on the Denison campus.
  4. All Faculty/Staff: Decals will not be renewed for several years since our faculty/ staff turnover is relatively small. For this reason, they do not have an expiration date. Should you sell your motor vehicle, please deface or remove the decal and apply for a new decal for the replacement vehicle.
  5. Faculty/Staff Parking Areas: The following areas normally are designated for faculty/staff parking on weekdays from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.: Parking Garage (requires staff ID), Olin/Sigma Chi Lots, Swasey Lot, Mitchell Lot, selected spaces by the Library. We ask your cooperation in parking only in designated areas and within the lines of the parking spaces.
  6. Enforcement of Speed Limits: The State of Ohio speed limits will prevail and be enforced. The campus-wide speed limit is 20 mph; radar is used to monitor and enforce speed violations on campus. Parking Garage speed limit is 10 MPH.
  7. Defensive Driving Courses: Campus Safety conducts Defensive Driving Courses throughout the academic year. If you plan to drive a University-owned, leased, or rented vehicle on University business or trips, you must successfully complete the defensive driving class. Dates for Defensive Driving Courses are publicized well in advance.

We appreciate your understanding that since parking is always at a premium, each one of us must cooperate and abide by the parking guidelines. In addition, please keep in mind that students look to the faculty and staff as role models on any number of issues, but this is especially true when parking is the issue.
