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 a.m. - 5 p.m.). Additionally, Lot G has also been designated for faculty and staff use only.
- 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 Lots U, V, and W.
- Lot Z is for commuters and visitors only.
Classes start at 8 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. Follow @FisherParking on Twitter between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. for parking updates.
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 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.

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 2016-2017 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.
Pre-register your vehicle by August 1.
Resident students may only register one vehicle. To be considered for your preferred parking lot you must pre-register your vehicle by August 1.
Resident freshmen may not have cars on campus. For parking purposes, a freshman is defined as a student in their first year of college, regardless of incoming credits.
Please Note: Preferred parking for residential students is assigned by earned credit hours. Not every student will be assigned a parking spot in their preferred lot, as permit requests usually exceed the parking availability. Anyone not receiving their preferred lot will be issued a parking pass in a designated overflow lot and will automatically be placed on a wait list for their preferred lot. Adjustments will be made to accommodate students on the wait list as availability arises throughout the year.
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.
