Designated Parking

Campus parking lots and internal streets are permit parking only, and stalls are marked with freestanding signs, and/or pavement and sidewalk striping. White-marked stalls indicate Student and general overflow parking. Yellow-marked stalls are clearly marked for Faculty/Staff or Visitors, and many have a word stripe at the top of the stall – meaning that an individual would be required to drive over the line in order to enter that particular space. All vehicles must have the authorized permit that corresponds with the stall it is parked in.

Student/General Parking: 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.

Housing: Parking lots east of Nisson Towers and Shiloh, and lower N Plaza are designated for on-campus housing, and student and staff residents may park overnight in these lots only.

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

Faculty & Staff: There are reserved parking stalls marked Faculty/Staff with yellow pavement striping, usually located at the top of most parking lots.

Visitors: Welcome to DSU! Visitor spaces are located throughout campus for guests to park in for free, and they are marked Visitor with yellow 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.

CAUTION: Visitor-marked stalls are for visitors only, and not for Faculty, Staff, or Students.

Handicap Parking: Stalls are marked by the typical federal insignia. The vehicle must have a state-issued handicap plate, hang tag, or placard, and these work as a parking permit in all campus lots if the vehicle is parked in a Handicap stall; i.e. a DSU issued parking permit is not required.

CAUTION: There are citizens groups 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: Motorcycle spaces are located throughout campus that do not currently require a permit.

CAUTION: Parking a motorcycle in a reserved or regular vehicle stall requires the corresponding permit. If parked in non-parking zones and/or in violation of other rules and regulations, the motorcycle will be cited.

Other Reserved Areas: Fire lanes, drive lanes (individually marked or not), sidewalks and sidewalk access ramps, and barricaded or gated areas. Each of these areas carries separate fines for violations and are patrolled 24 hours, 7 days a week.

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