Cedar Crest College Campus Police

PARKING AND TRAFFIC REGULATIONS

Campus Police is located in the Safety & Facilities Building behind Curtis Hall. Any questions or problems relating to motor vehicles and/or parking on campus should be directed to the Chief of Campus Police at ext. 3523.

Vehicle Registration is for everyone. All faculty, staff, students and contract employees must register their vehicle(s) at the Campus Police office within 24 hours of entering campus. Campus Police is open 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. To register, students, staff and faculty will need to show their vehicle registration, proof of insurance, current driver’s license and Cedar Crest College photo ID to obtain their decals. Contract employees (such as Parkhurst and Barnes & Noble) not having a Cedar Crest College identification will need to show a valid driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance to receive a Staff parking decal. Remember to report any changes to Campus Police immediately. While there is no fee for motor vehicle registration, failure to register and properly display a decal does result in a $20.00 fine. Continued failure to comply with all Parking and Traffic Regulations will invalidate your decal and its privileges. Mutilated or defaced decals are considered invalid and must be replaced. Oncampus parking privileges terminate upon separation from the College.

Campus traffic regulations are to be adhered to at all times. The student, staff or faculty member to whom the vehicle is registered is liable for any violations, regardless of who operates the vehicle.

Fines are incurred for the following violations:

  • Parking within an intersection
