We are grateful that God continues to bless North Greenville University. We are continuing to grow and are having another record enrollment this year. However, with a growing population comes an increased responsibility to follow the parking regulations. These regulations are enforced for your safety and the safety of others.

Changes and Reminders to Parking Regulations

1.     Due to construction and policy changes at North Greenville University, North Greenville University Campus Security reserves the right to change or add to these Parking Regulations to better accommodate parking and traffic for students, faculty, staff and visitors at any time.

This will require a person who has been issued a State Uniform Traffic Citation to appear before a Magistrate Judge. The NGU security office also assists Tigerville Fire Department upon request.
