Parking Rules and Regulations

Rules and Regulations

All vehicles, including guest vehicles, must be registered/permitted with the Parking Operations and Security Services Office to park on any campus roadway or in any campus parking lot. Exceptions to the registration/permit rule Neubig Rd (90 minute parking district), Prospect Terrace, and pay-per-use parking areas (meters). Other restrictions are indicated by posted signage.

Vehicles must be parked so that a license plate is viewable from the driving lane.  For vehicles registered in jurisdictions that do not issue front plates (i.e. Pennsylvania), this typically means the vehicle will need to be parked “nose-in”.

License plates must be readable.  Devices that cover or obstruct a license plate are illegal in New York State (NY V&T § 402 (b)). The presence of such devices may result in the issuance of a citation.  

Only one vehicle per permit may park on campus per day.  While you are able to register multiple vehicles to a permit, only one may park on campus during any calendar day.  Multiple vehicles from one permit found parking in campus lots in a single calendar day will result in a citation being issued.  If you must switch vehicles during a calendar day, contact parking@cortland.edu or 607-753-4123.

Vehicles registered in New York: the New York Department of Motor Vehicles has acknowledged that some older license plates are susceptible to “delamination (peeling) of their printed coating”.  Replacements for license plates experiencing this issue may be obtained free of charge.  More information is located at dmv.ny.gov.

Usage of accessible parking requires a valid, government-issued disability hang tag or license plate.  Usage of these spaces is allowed only for the purpose of transporting the disability permit-holder.  Disability hang tags/license plates subject to verification upon request.

Visitors are advised to use Paid Parking at ASC on Prospect Terrace, next to Neubig Hall (lot N-17).

Members of the campus community may purchase a parking permit online or at the Parking Operations and Security Services Office located in Whitaker Hall, room 104.
