Parking information for students residing on-campus
- Although The University of Scranton is an urban campus with limited
parking, sufficient parking spaces are available to meet demand on a
daily basis. Parking Regulations are necessary for the safety and
convenience of the entire University community and are designed to
allow maximum use of our available parking spaces.
regulations apply on the streets, roads, alleys, sidewalks, walkways,
parking spaces, parking areas and parking lots on the entire campus of
The University of Scranton Campus. University parking rules,
regulations and enforcement are in effect all year, including periods
when classes are not in session.
- When additional
events, such as conferences, seminars or workshops are conducted on
campus, parking capacity may be exceeded. The fact that parking
capacity appears to be or is exceeded does not authorize a user to
violate this parking policy. In addition, the purchase of a parking
pass does not guarantee a convenient parking space. Parking spaces may
only be available off the center of campus.
Parking Services goal is to serve the University community with
fairness, courtesy and efficiency. Any parking-related problems,
complaints, suggestions or compliments should be referred to the
Parking Services Manager, Parking and Public Safety Pavilion, 820
Mulberry Street. The office is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00
p.m. A 24 hour drop box for express or after hours ticket payment is
located outside the Parking Services office. This box can be used to
pay a ticket without waiting in line or to submit a ticket appeal.
