1. University parking lots are not to be used for the storage of automobiles,
trucks, trailers, or other vehicles. Pedestrians must be given the right-of-way
at all crosswalks at all times. A campus area, which has been closed
off by a barricade or other traffic control devices, including signs,
may not be entered by any vehicle except when specifically authorized
by the Security Office. Vehicles must obey all traffic control devices
on campus. The registration and purchase of a permit for a vehicle does
not guarantee that a parking space convenient for the individual will
be provided. The responsibility for finding a legal parking space rests
with the motor vehicle operator. Inability to locate a legal parking
space is not an acceptable excuse for violation of these regulations.
Legal spaces are outlined by white lines; vehicles must park within
the lines. Any area of roadway including that area within a parking
lot, which is not specifically marked for parking, loading, or as a
fire lane is defined as a driveway. An access way is any area, path,
or walkway, which permits entry to or exit from a building. Parking
in driveways or access ways is prohibited. All vehicles driven on campus
must be operated in a safe manner. Weaving on roadways or inattentive
driving which causes an accident are examples of violations of this
section. All state laws governing movement, operation, and parking of
vehicles shall apply on University property. Parking in fire lanes (designated
by roadway marking, signs, or both) is a violation of Philadelphia ordinance
as well as University regulation. Vehicles so parked may be towed at
the owner's expense
2. No parking is permitted in areas without painted stalls. To expedite
traffic flow and for safety reasons vehicles should be parked “head
in” in all parking spaces, not “backed in.” No parking
is permitted on lawns, driveways, walks, or sodded areas on any part
of the campus. Vehicles should be parked only in their direction of
travel from the driving lane. Weather conditions do not alter parking
regulations unless extreme situations cause an emergency to be declared.
Reserved parking areas are indicated by appropriate signs marked for
University personnel or handicapped. Temporary handicapped identification
must be obtained from the Security and Safety Department in order to
park in a stall reserved for the handicapped.
3. Only Christian Brothers who park on the main campus, faculty and
staff authorized by the Director of Security and Safety, and resident
students displaying the proper permit may park overnight in the Student
4. University identification and the owner's card for the vehicle must
be presented to any Security Officer upon request.
5. Parking is defined as “stationing a vehicle without a driver
attendance and irrespective of the period of time such vehicle is stationed.”
6. The vehicle registrant is responsible for notifying the Security
Officer of any change in status (commuter moving on campus, staff resigning,
etc.) or of vehicle ownership or license plate within 5 days. Should
the change affect permit eligibility, notification will be sent of the
required modification. Registrants are responsible for removing or destroying
the University permit if their vehicle is sold or the registrant’s
affiliation with the University is ended.
7. La Salle University reserves the right to tow away, impound, or immobilize
any vehicle parked in violation of University rules and to impose such
fines and/or other penalties as may be specified.
8. The University reserves the right to change any Traffic Control Regulation.
Normally, changes in the regulations will be announced through the campus
newspapers and other appropriate media.
9. Anyone who has registered a vehicle and who must, for valid reasons,
temporarily drive an unregistered vehicle, is required to obtain a temporary
permit in order to park on a designated lot. Visitors are welcome and
should obtain a temporary permit from the Security and Safety Department.
This permit should be displayed on top of the dash on the driver's side
so it can be seen. Parking should only be in areas designated on the
pass. University personnel having visitors on the campus should inform
them of parking rules and regulations. Possession of a decal permit/hang
tag or temporary permit implies awareness of the University Motor Vehicle
Regulations and the responsibility to adhere to them.
10. The Director of Security and Safety or his designee is authorized
to enforce traffic or parking regulations. Parking permits are required
for campus parking at all times. Faculty and staff parking permits,
except temporary permits, are issued on a fiscal year basis. Student
permits are issued on a semester or yearly basis.
11. Motorcycle and Moped Regulations
a) Any faculty, staff member, or student may register a motorcycle or
Moped for a university parking permit. This registration may be made
in addition to registration for a four-wheeled vehicle. For the purpose
of these regulations, the terms “motorcycle” and “Moped”
are synonymous. Motorcycle permits are valid in motorcycle spaces in
all lots, but motorcycles may not park in automobile spaces. Motorcycles
are not permitted in the University buildings and will be removed at
the direction of the Security and Safety Department in accordance with
prevailing University policy. In addition to incurring a fine, the owner
of any such vehicle so removed must pay the costs of removal.
12. Bicycle Regulations
a) Bicycle registration is free and is available at the Security and
Safety Department to assist in identification if a bicycle is stolen/lost
and to identify owners of bicycles that have been recovered.
b) Bicycles are not permitted in buildings except when owners keep them
inside their office or residence hall room.
c) Bicycles parked in unauthorized places (such as hallways, sidewalks,
and entrances to buildings) will be removed by the Security Office.
In order to reclaim their bicycles, owners must appear at the Security
and Safety Office, establish ownership, and pay a $10.00 fee.
d) All persons are urged to use a substantial locking device on their
bicycles, report persons tampering with, or otherwise engaging in, suspicious
activity around bicycles, and to promptly report any theft.
e) Bicycles must abide by State Laws and City Ordinances. Riding on
the main campus (the area bounded by Olney Avenue, 20th Street, Central
High School, and Fairmount Park) is strictly
