Parking tickets will be issued to all students, faculty and staff vehicles that do not display valid university-issued parking decals. This policy went into effect Thursday.

Permits must be purchased at the Cashier’s Window in Long-Jones Hall room 171. Call (318) 274-2671 for more information. The student parking decal fee is $14 and the faculty/staff parking decal fee is $30.

Adams Hall facing RWE Jones Drive, the A.C. Lewis Memorial Library side, Blalock Street where the white paint starts behind the basketball court and at the Performing Arts building, on the left side facing the building. 

Tickets will be issued for the following violations: parking on any lawn or grassy area, parking in a No Parking Zone, unlawfully parking in an accessible parking spot or blocking a campus dumpster or walkway.
