Parking – What students should know?
The University of Holy Cross Police Department’s mission is to protect and serve the UHC Community, but the Police Department also regulates parking. All vehicles parked on campus require a UHC parking decal. Parking rules and regulations are enforced 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
Residential Parking Decals
The parking decals are issued by the Admissions Department. Residential parking decals for UHC Residence Hall are issued at no cost to residents. Decals expire per year and are good for the entire academic school year, which runs from August 15th of one year to August 15th of the next year. Residential parking is restricted to certain areas. Residents of Residence Hall must park within the white lined spaces of the Residential Parking Area. Staff parking spaces are marked by signs and are reserved for staff personnel 24/7. Residents must park between white lined spaces only in the parking area of the residence hall complex located across from the Moreau Center. Remember, residential parking is restricted and anyone found parking outside their restricted parking area will be subject to receive a citation for violating the Parking & Traffic Rules and Regulations. To park on campus, residents must purchase a regular student parking decal.
Student Parking Decals
Student parking decal fees vary per semester. See https://olhcc.tfaforms.net/217731 for the fees. All student decals for the new academic school year are valid from August 15th of one year to August 15th of the next year. Therefore, all decals expire at the same time regardless of the date it is issued. So, if you purchase a decal in the fall there is no need to purchase one for the spring unless you’re getting an additional decal for a second vehicle. Student parking decals allow students to park in white lined spaces only in the general parking lots which are shared lots for students. Students may park in yellow lined spaces after 5:00 PM with a current student parking decal for that academic school year. Faculty/Staff only parking lots are clearly marked with signs at the entrance of these lots. Parking rules and regulations are enforced 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
Special Note: Student parking decals are required for all students driving vehicles on campus - no exceptions.
