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. Proper e-mail and other notices will be made before these changes take effect.
These regulations are applicable to all members of the campus community, including students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
Parking Color Codes
Below is a list of the different colored lines you will see on campus and what they mean.
White Lines: student parking. Any student may park in this space so long as it is within a lot they are permitted to park in (for a detailed explanation of what permit type allows a student to park in what lots, see Where can I park?).
Yellow Lines: faculty/staff parking. Students are not permitted to park in yellow spaces between 7:30am and 5:30pm. Students may park in yellow spaces from 6:00am until 7:30am or after 5:30pm. However, students are not allowed to leave their cars parked in yellow spaces after curfew (Sunday-Thursday: midnight, Friday-Saturday 1:00am).
Blue Lines: state-mandated handicapped parking. Only those with state-issued handicapped permits, plaques, or license plates may park in blue spaces (note: an appropriate NGU-issued parking permit should also be displayed). Those with temporary medical permits issued by Campus Security are not allowed to park in state-mandated handicapped spaces (for questions about temporary medical permits, see Where can I park?).
Red Lines/Curbs: fire lanes and no-parking zones. No parking is permitted in zones with red lines or curbs. Those who choose to park in red line areas will be ticketed.
Special Reserved Spaces
There are several special reserved spaces around campus. These spaces are marked with a sign and are unavailable for students, faculty, staff, or visitors at all times. These spaces include, but are not limited to:
Dr. Pannellís (Interim Presidentís) Space
Chairman of the Board of Trusteeís Space
Marked spaces at Younts Football Stadium
Spaces reserved for Student Life employees in the dorm areas (marked by yellow lines and/or signs)
There are several spaces around campus that are reserved for visitors and guests to specific facilities, such as in front of Hayes Ministry Center and Turner Chapel. These spots are reserved only for off-campus visitors/guests of those departments and are unavailable to students, faculty, and staff at all times.
Chapel Speaker Spots
The Chapel Speaker Space is reserved for the Chapel Speaker on Monday and Wednesday mornings. All other times, this space should be treated as a visitor or guest space.
Purchasing a Parking Permit
All students, staff, and faculty members are required to have a parking permit.
Faculty and Staff
Permits are available for faculty and staff members at no charge at the Campus Security office. Faculty and staff members may have as many permits as needed.
Students are required to purchase a parking permit each school year. Permits are issued from August 1 of the first calendar year (i.e. 2016) through July 31 of the second calendar year of the school year (i.e. 2017). At this time, single-semester or half-year permits are not available.
There is a parking permit fee of $65.00. Students who wish to have two cars on campus may do so, but must purchase a second permit at the Campus Security Office. The charge for a second permit is $10.00. If two students are members of the same household, they may purchase a primary permit for one student for $65.00 and the other a secondary permit for $10.00. Students wishing to purchase two permits in this manner must either be siblings residing in the same home or married students. Any student under 18 years of age at the time of enrollment must discuss the parking regulations with a parent or guardian at the time a permit is purchased.
If a student wishes to purchase his or her permit with a credit or debit card, visit https://www.permitsales.net/NGU. If a student is unable to purchase his or her permit with a credit or debit card, a parking permit may be purchased with cash or check at the Campus Security Office located at 23 Wingo St. (behind Todd Dining Hall).
If a student serves as a Resident Assistant ("RA") or Resident Coordinator ("RC"), he or she is entitled to one free permit. If an RA or RC wishes to have two vehicles on campus, a second permit may be purchased for $10.00.
Student vehicles with a North Greenville "NU" vanity license plate (see picture) are required to register their vehicles with Campus Security and are entitled to receive one free parking permit. 3
By purchasing or accepting a permit, a student is acknowledging that he or she understands and agrees to abide by the parking regulations. Furthermore, he or she agrees that failure to obey regulation will result in a ticket for which he or she will be financially responsible.
In the event a student is unable to purchase a permit due to financial difficulties, a student may bring documentation of that difficulty to the Campus Security Office in order to make other arrangements for purchasing a parking permit. All requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
