Parking Information

Parking and operating a motor vehicle on the St. John Fisher College Campus is a privilege. All vehicles on the Fisher campus must be registered with the Office of Safety and Security and display a valid parking permit or pass on the vehicle.

The College will not be responsible for the loss of, damage to, or theft of any vehicle on College property.

Parking Reminders

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.

If you are a resident student, you must keep your car parked in your assigned resident lot when on campus. We ask you to respect these guidelines. If we see cars with resident lot permits parked elsewhere on campus, they will be ticketed.

Parking Permits and Registration

Register Your Vehicle

All student vehicles using College parking facilities must register yearly with the Office of Safety and Security using the online vehicle registration form. Faculty and staff may also register online for a parking permit. 

Display 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 Office of Safety and Security. All faculty, staff, and students will be held responsible if they park in a lot other than their assigned lot.

Temporary Permits

Students, faculty, staff using a temporary vehicle must obtain a temporary parking permit from the Office of Safety and Security. Temporary permits are valid for no more than five days from date of issuance without the approval of the director or assistant director of safety and security.

Accessible Parking Permits

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 Office of Safety and Security does not issue, nor is authorized to issue, temporary accessible parking permits.

Resident First-Year Student Parking

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

Please note, parking is EXTREMELY limited; as such, exceptions to the Freshman Parking policy cannot be granted for off-campus employment.
