How to Avoid Parking Tickets

  1. Purchase and properly display a current Oklahoma State University parking permit.
  2. Do not park in areas marked with yellow paint or where prohibited by sign. Vehicles blocking traffic lanes, bus stops, loading zones, fire lanes or on lawns will be cited and towed at the owner's expense.
  3. Do not park in spaces or access aisles designated persons with disabilities unless you have the proper Oklahoma State University parking permit. Accessible parking spaces are 24 hour tow away zones.
  4. All spaces in paved parking lots have painted white lines on both sides of the parking spaces. If there is not a painted line on both sides, it is not a parking space. Spaces in gravel parking lots are designated by white or gray bumper blocks.
  5. If you allow others to drive your motor vehicle, remember permits cannot be shared. Make sure to remove your permit before allowing others to drive your vehicle. Parking citations issued to your vehicle will be billed to you.
  6. Remove your Oklahoma State University parking permits from your vehicle prior to sale or transfer of the vehicle. Your permit is designed to be moved to your replacement vehicle.
  7. If you receive a parking citation and wish to appeal, remember that you must submit within fourteen (14) days from the date of the citation. Parking meter and boot release citations are not appealable.
  8. Parking information is available online or at the Parking Office.
  9. If you are in doubt about a parking zone or regulation, please call Parking Services to obtain the correct information.
