Missouri State University

Parking Regulations

Parking regulations are enforced on campus 24 hours a day seven days a week.  Parking permits are required for commuter and residence hall lots, day and evening, for the fall, spring and summer semesters.  Parking permits are required year round for reserved lots.

Parking on University property is a privilege.  Violations of the University Parking Policy and/or these Parking Regulations may result in the loss of campus parking privileges.

Use of the University's parking lot facilities and/or receipt of a parking permit, constitutes consent to and agreement with the University Parking Policy and Parking Regulations, and authorizes University action as described therein.

Finding a legal parking space and displaying a valid permit is the responsibility of the vehicle owner/operator.  Registration of a vehicle and purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee a space to park.  Lack of a convenient parking space is not justification for violation of University Parking Regulations.

Motorized vehicles of any sort, including mopeds, scooters, and similar non-licensed vehicles, are prohibited on the University sidewalks and bicycle paths, other than licensed and non-licensed University-owned vehicles being used in the conduct of University business or in case of fire or to otherwise maintain the public peace and order. Non-licensed vehicles, such as mopeds and scooters (49cc or less) are required to register their vehicle with the Parking Administration Office, display a University motorcycle permit and park in designated motorcycle spaces on campus.

A copy of the University Parking Policy may be viewed in the Parking Administration Office located at 700 E. Elm. Additionally, the Missouri State Parking Policy may be accessed on the Web.
