2014-2015 Parking Guidelines

St. John Fisher College recently commissioned a comprehensive parking study that looked at both current and future needs of the College with an eye towards remediating some of the most pressing parking concerns on campus.

The study offered a variety of recommendations. Those recommendations, along with the construction projects currently taking place on campus, have led to some changes to the parking guidelines for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Integrated Science and Health Sciences Building Construction Impact and Timeline

Construction of the Integrated Science and Health Sciences Building, located in front of the Skalny Science Center, began in May 2014, and is projected to be complete by fall 2015. As a result, Parking Lot A has lost approximately 60 spots, but will regain 40 of those spots once construction is complete.

Parking Lot A Guidelines

The busiest lot on campus is Parking Lot A. In an effort to reduce some of the stress on that lot during peak parking times, the College has relocated all first-year pharmacy students to Lot V at Murphy Hall. Lot V will now be exclusive to first-year pharmacy students.

Parking Lot Changes/Updates

Faculty, staff, students, and visitors, please note:

  • Parking Lots D and E, located on both sides of the Salerno Center, have been designated for faculty and staff use ONLY (Monday-Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.).
  • Parking Lot F, adjacent to the Wegmans School of Nursing, was repaved and reconfigured during the summer, resulting in an additional 24 spots that are available to students.
  • Overflow parking for resident students will be reassigned to the Park and Ride and Parking Lot U by Murphy Hall.
  • Murphy Hall residents will receive permits for Parking Lot W.

Parking Reminders

Classes start at 8:00 a.m. every day of the week. We ask that commuter students plan their time accordingly and arrive on campus early enough to park and get to class on time.

If you are a resident student, you must keep your car parked in your assigned resident lot when on campus. Those lots are dedicated to you and keep other parking available for our commuters. We ask you to respect these guidelines. If we see cars with resident lot permits parked elsewhere on campus, they will be ticketed.

Parking Regulations

Parking and operating a motor vehicle on the St. John Fisher College Campus is a privilege. All vehicles on the Fisher campus including Park & Ride (Lot S) must be registered with the Safety and Security Department and display a valid parking permit or pass on the vehicle.

Learn more about Parking Regulations and Fines.

Parking Lot Designations

Commuter Student Parking

Commuter designated permits may only park in Lots A, C, F, G, I, W, Y, and Park & Ride (Lot S). Commuter student overnight parking is permitted in S Lot only, unless approved by Security in advance.

Resident Student Parking

Resident students are assigned lots in the residence hall parking areas based on their total number of earned credit hours and prior violation history. During special events or snow removal, resident students may be asked to move your vehicles to alternate parking areas for short periods of time. Resident students may park only in their assigned parking area according to the following permit designations:

  • I - Lot I (Haffey and Ward Hall Resident Assistants only)
  • J - Lot J (Dorsey, Murray, and Michaelhouse)
  • U & W - Lot U & W (Murphy Hall)
  • P - Lot P (Keough Hall and Ward Hall)
  • T - Lot T (Founders Hall)

When a resident student's assigned lot is full, then the student must park in the SJFC designated area of the Park & Ride lot.

Faculty/Staff Parking

Faculty/staff designated spaces are posted in Lots A, C, D, E, F, G, I, M, N, Q, R, S, X, and Y. Faculty and staff may park in any of the parking areas designated for faculty, staff, or commuter student parking. Faculty and staff are not authorized to park in spaces reserved for visitors to the College.

Visitor Parking

Parking in the front of Kearney Hall is reserved for visitors only during normal business hours (M-F 8AM – 5PM).

Resident student's visitors must obtain a Visitor Pass from the Safety & Security Office. The St. John Fisher College designated area of Park & Ride (Lot S) is to be used for resident students' visitors. Visitor parking passes are only valid for a maximum of 3 days from the date of issuance.

Alternate Parking: During winter months and for special events, vehicles may need to be moved to alternative parking areas for a short time. Members of the campus community will be notified by email as appropriate.

During special events or snow removal, resident students may be asked to move your vehicles to alternate parking areas for short periods of time.

Temporary Permits

Students, faculty, staff using a temporary vehicle must obtain a Temporary Parking Permit from the Safety and Security Department. Temporary Permits are valid for no more than 5 days from date of issuance without the approval of the Director or Assistant Director of Safety and Security.

Accessible Parking

In accordance with New York State Vehicle and Traffic Laws, accessible spaces in campus parking lots are reserved for those vehicles displaying authorized accessible parking permits or license plates. Please note that the Safety and Security Department does not issue, nor is authorized to issue, temporary accessible parking permits. Contact the Safety and Security Department at (585) 385-8025 with questions.

Resident Freshmen Parking

Resident freshmen may not have cars on campus. For parking purposes, a freshman is defined as a student who is in their first year of college regardless of any incoming advanced credits. If you were admitted through Freshman Admissions, you will be considered a freshman for parking for the entire academic year.


Parking Permits

Students, faculty, and staff may apply for parking permits online or at the Safety & Security Department.

Registering Your Vehicle

All student vehicles using College parking facilities must register yearly with the Safety & Security Department using the online vehicle registration form or by filling out a registration form in person at the security desk.

Parking permits for the 2015-2016 academic year are $50 for commuters and $75 for residents and are valid for the entire school year. NY sales tax is included in this fee.

Permits may be picked up at the Security Office. You must produce your vehicle registration to show proof of ownership.

Resident Students

Resident students may only register one vehicle. To be considered for your preferred parking lot you must pre-register your vehicle by August 1, 2015.

First-year students may not register for a parking permit.

Residents students that miss this deadline may still obtain a resident parking permit and will be assigned to an appropriate overflow lot.

Displaying Your Permit

All parking permits must be displayed on the driver's side rear window of the vehicle to ensure that security officers can identify your vehicle. If not properly displayed, the car is subject to ticketing. The registration process is complete only when the issued parking permit is affixed to the vehicle as prescribed by the Safety & Security Department. All faculty, staff, and students will be held responsible if they park in a lot other than their assigned lot.
