Parking is permitted in marked stalls only.   Responsibility for finding legal parking stalls rests with the vehicle operator. Lack of parking spaces, mechanical problems, inclement weather or other disabilities does not justify parking violations.

PERMIT DISPLAY: It is the vehicle owner’s responsibility to display the permit in accordance with the University parking regulations. A“sticker”permit must be attached to the inside of the front windshield on the righthand(passenger)side. A parking permit is not considered valid unless it is displayed correctly on the vehicle. The issued permit sticker is valid September 1st through August 31st.

The Public Safety and Parking Services Offices are authorized to remove, at the owner’s expense, any vehicle not displaying the permit. The Public Safety and Parking Services Offices are authorized to remove from the University property, without warning, any motor vehicle under the following circumstances: an abandoned vehicle; a vehicle parked in a fire lane or blocking a drive; a vehicle displaying a reported lost or stolen, forged, or altered parking permit; a vehicle illegally parked in a handicap space.

LOT CLOSURE:  The Clifton Garage is closed for DePaul’s winter break each year. Clifton only permit holders will be allowed to park in DePaul surface lots during the winter closure.  At other times during the year, a special event may dictate the closure of a certain parking lot. In this case, a sign will be prominently posted no less than 24 hours in advance of the event.  Every effort will be made to contact permit holders prior to the event to avoid towed relocation of the vehicle.  During the summer months, any and all lots are subject to closure depending on the needs of the University.

SNOW REMOVAL: After or during snowfall of 2” or more, all vehicles parked on the top levels of the garages must be removed to clear snow.
