Parking on Campus

Navarro College Traffic Safety Rules and Regulations

Parking on the Navarro College campuses is provided to help promote access and convenience. As a privilege extended to the user, every attempt must be made to avoid the abuse of this privilege. The following policy has been developed to help manage parking on the Navarro College campuses and to help ensure vehicles on campus are parked in legitimate parking spaces.

Students: All students, whether Residence Life or commuter,  enrolled in courses at Navarro College are required to register any vehicle for which they are responsible when they register for classes at the beginning of the fall term or the first term of enrollment of each academic year. While a parking fee will be assessed for each term of enrollment, the parking permit sticker issued is valid for the entire academic year.  A new parking permit sticker is required for each academic year beginning in the fall semester.  In the event the student brings a different vehicle on campus, the new vehicle must be registered immediately at no additional expense. Parking permits are available in the Office of Admissions and Records with appropriate student identification. A license plate number for the vehicle being registered will be required. Failure to register a vehicle may result in the vehicle being ticketed and/or towed.

The parking permit will be affixed to lower right or lower left corner of the front windshield.  Students enrolled at Navarro College are permitted to park in any available parking space provided the parking space is not reserved for visitors, handicapped, faculty, staff or residence life hall residents.

Residence Life students are encouraged to park their vehicle in parking spaces designated for Residence Life students.  Residence Life students are also encouraged to walk to class and not move their vehicle to a more convenient location on campus.

Faculty and Staff: Faculty and staff are also required to register their vehicles and procure a parking permit. Faculty and staff will be issued a parking permit when they are employed by the college. The parking permit issued will remain with the employee’s vehicles until such time that vehicle is replaced.  Parking permits are available in the Office of Admissions and Records. Failure to register a vehicle may result in the vehicle being towed and/or impounded.

Faculty and staff will park their vehicles in spaces identified for faculty/staff.  If all faculty/staff parking spaces are filled, faculty and staff may use other available spaces except those designated for handicapped parking (unless the faculty staff member is disabled and in need of a handicapped parking space).

Staff having responsibilities in Residence Life and assigned a parking space are encouraged to walk to their work station and not move their vehicle to a more convenient parking location on campus.

Administrative Management Personnel: Administrative management personnel are also required to register their vehicle and procure a parking permit. Parking permits will be issued when they are employed by the college. The parking permit issued will remain with the vehicle until such time that the vehicle is replaced. Parking permits are available in the Office of Admissions and Records. Failure to register a vehicle may result in the vehicle being towed and/or impounded.

With the exception of parking spaces marked for handicapped individuals, all administrative personnel may park their vehicle in any available parking space on campus.

Visitors: Navarro College understands there will be visitors on campus from time to time.  All visitors to the campus will park their vehicle in areas designated for visitors. If the visit is prolonged beyond one (1) hour, a visitor’s permit must be procured by the driver of the vehicle.  A vehicle issued a long-term permit exceeding one (1) hour will be registered with Campus Police.  All temporary permits will be issued by Campus Police on an as-needed basis.  With the exception of handicapped parking, vehicles with a temporary permit may park in any designated parking space on campus.

Weekend Permits: Navarro College often has parents of Residence Life students visiting on campus. In these instances, a vehicle on campus for a weekend or overnight must be registered with Campus Police. A temporary permit will be issued by Campus Police for the duration of stay. The parking permit will be displayed on the dashboard visible from the outside.

With the exception of handicapped parking, unless authorized, vehicles with a temporary permit may park in all parking areas on the campus.

The driver of a vehicle on campus will be expected to follow all federal, state and municipal laws in effect for parking. Failure to adhere to these laws, including policies enacted by the Navarro College Board of Trustees, may result in the revocation of an issued permit, issuance of a citation and towing and/or impound of the vehicle found to be in violation.

All vehicles parked on the premises of all campuses of the Navarro College District must have a parking permit displayed on a front lower corner of the front windshield or a temporary permit displayed on the dashboard clearly visible from the outside.  Any vehicle parked in a Navarro College parking space without a parking permit or temporary permit after 11 p.m. will be towed at the owner’s expense.
