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.
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. 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 or by filling out a registration form in person at the security desk Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. - 11 p.m. Faculty and staff may also apply for a parking permit online or in person.
Permits may be picked up at the Security Office. You must produce your vehicle registration to show proof of ownership.
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.
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.
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 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.
