Designated Parking
Rules and Guidelines

Campus parking lots and internal streets are permit parking only, and stalls are marked with freestanding signs, and/or pavement and sidewalk striping. All vehicles must have the authorized permit that corresponds with the stall it is parked in.

Parking Stall Striping

(general Faculty/Staff)
(Non-student, faculty, staff)


Stalls are located throughout campus that are available to students, faculty, staff, and visitors. They are the bulk of every parking lot and are designated by white pavement striping. Student, Student/Housing, and Faculty/Staff permits, or a Visitor, Vendor, or Contractor parking pass is required to park in white-marked stalls.

Student Housing

Parking lots east of Nisson Towers and lower North Plaza are designated for on-campus housing, and are marked in dark gray on the parking map. Student and staff residents may park overnight in these lots only.

CAUTION: Housing and overnight parking is not permitted in the lots west of Campus View Suites, and vehicles will be cited for Overnight/Improper Zone Parking.

Faculty & Staff

There are reserved parking stalls marked with yellow pavement striping, usually located at the top of most parking lots. A Premium Faculty/Staff permit is required to park in yellow-marked stalls.


Parking lots designated as Economy are located around campus, and are marked in orange on the parking map. These lots serve as an economical option corresponding with the Economy Lots permit. All parking permits are permitted to park in these designated lots.

Handicap Parking

Stalls located throughout campus are marked by the typical federal insignia. Vehicles transporting a qualified disabled person may use their state-issued Handicap placards and plates as DSU parking permits.

NOTE: Only vehicles displaying a disabled person’s plate or placard, and transporting a qualified disabled person, may park in a parking space that is clearly identified as reserved for use by a disabled person (

CAUTION: There are citizens who have been authorized by St. George PD to drive through parking lots and check these reserved areas, and they have been authorized to issue citations, and they carry a $160 ADA fine. There is no valid appeal for parking in a handicap stall without a valid handicap insignia clearly visible on the vehicle.


Motorcycle spaces are located throughout campus that do not currently require a permit.

NOTE: Parking a motorcycle in a reserved or regular vehicle stall requires the corresponding permit, and while it is not required to display the permit on the motorcycle, a permit must be purchased and on file that corresponds with the license plate and owner/driver.

CAUTION: If parked in non-parking zones and/or in violation of other rules and regulations, the motorcycle will be cited.

Visitors (non – students, faculty and staff)

Visitor spaces are located throughout campus for guests (non – DSU students, faculty, staff) to park in for free, and they are marked with green pavement striping. Special day-passes for guests are available upon request at the Cashier’s Office in the Holland Centennial Commons building, located on the first floor, or online by clicking here.

NOTE: Visitor-marked stalls are for visitors to DSU only, and not for students, faculty, or staff at any time for any length of time. Any student, faculty, and staff vehicles found parked in a Visitor stall will receive a citation for Parking in a Reserved Zone or Parking Stall.

Other Reserved Areas

Fire lanes, emergency drive lanes (individually marked or not), sidewalks and sidewalk access ramps, and barricaded or gated areas. Each of these areas carries separate fines per violation and are patrolled 24 hours, 7 days a week.

NOTE: Citations will be issued for driving or parking on a sidewalk or lawn, or outside of a stall.

R.V. Parking

R.V. Parking is permitted in designated lots during daytime hours only. To request an R.V., Motor Home/Camper day parking pass, submit the Pass Requests by Guest form on the Visitors & Temporary Parking Passes page and include “for R.V.” in the Reason for Visit. A PDF printable pass will be emailed to you, along with parking map and instructions on where to park your R.V. Trucks pulling trailers must remain hitched while parked on campus.

Loading and Unloading

The only time an appeal for “loading or unloading” will be considered is if the individual can show a valid need to park in a particular area to load, and show they left their emergency flashers on for the duration.
