Parking Regulations and Fines

Anyone wishing to park a motor vehicle or bicycle on property owned or controlled by the University must obtain a Liberty University parking decal.  Obtaining a decal does not guarantee a convenient parking space.  Lack of a convenient parking space is not a valid excuse for violation of any regulation.  You may have to walk a distance or ride the shuttle – so plan extra time.

University parking rules and regulations are in effect year-around, including periods when classes are not in session.  ALL parking lots are subject to closure to all students, faculty, and staff during special events.

2013 - 2014 Parking Permits


Chargeable Offenses

It is not possible to mark with signs or paint all the areas of University property where parking and/or stopping is prohibited.  However, the following guidelines will be strictly enforced and can result in towing of that vehicle (with the exceptions of “non-emergency repairs”), and other administrative actions.  See also Towing and Immobilization of Vehicles

Parking of a Vehicle

Vehicles must be parked between two lines or space markers on a paved parking lot.  The fact that one motor vehicle is parked in such a manner as to occupy more than one parking space is not an acceptable excuse for another vehicle to do the same.  This includes all motorcycles and mopeds.

The same rules pertain to motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, and bicycles shall not be parked in a building or within 10 feet of a building unless a parking area has been designated.

If you are unable to find a space in your designated lot or lots, overflow parking will be located on East Campus in Zone 4.


Disabled Vehicles

Any disabled vehicle MUST BE REPORTED IMMEDIATELY TO LUPD BY CALLING 434-582-7641, or 434-582-3911 for EMERGENCIES ONLY.

A disabled vehicle must be removed from Liberty’s property within 48 hours of the incident to prevent a parking citation, towing, or impoundment.  Any vehicle in a fire lane or handicap space must be moved immediately.

Any person wanting to repair their vehicle may not use University property, except for emergency repairs.  Any individual temporarily operating a different vehicle than is already registered with LUPD while their vehicle is being repaired must obtain a temporary parking permit.  See also Parking Registration and Fees.
