Parking Regulations 2023-2024
Due to construction and policy changes at North Greenville University, the Office of Campus Safety and 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. Notification will be made before these changes take effect.
These regulations are applicable to all members of the campus community including students, faculty, staff, vendors, and visitors.
North Greenville University is a walking campus. Resident students are encouraged to and should park near their dorm and walk to their desired location.
Purchasing a Parking Permit
Everyone is required to clearly display a valid NGU parking permit on their vehicle while parked or otherwise stationary for an extended period of time on any property owned and operated by North Greenville University.
Faculty and Staff
Parking permits are available for faculty and staff members at no charge at the Office of Campus Safety and Security. Faculty and staff members may register all the vehicles they own and receive a permit for each vehicle.
Students are required to purchase a parking permit each school year. Permits are valid for this upcoming school. Single-semester or half-year permits are not available.
Parking Permits cost $70.00. Students who wish to have two cars on campus may do so but must purchase a second permit at the Office of Campus Safety and Security at the cost of $10.00.
If a student wishes to purchase his or her permit with a credit or debit card, visit go.ngu.edu/purchase-parking.
If a student serves as a Student Leadership Team member (“RA”) or Community Director (“CD”), he or she is entitled to one free permit. If an Student Leadership Team member or Community Director 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.
By purchasing or accepting a permit, a student is acknowledging that he or she understands and agrees to abide by the NGU Parking Regulations. Furthermore, he or she agrees that failure to obey these regulations 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 Office of Campus Safety and Security in order to make other arrangements for purchasing a parking permit. All requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Individuals who wish to have a motorcycle, “street legal” dirt bike, moped, or motorized scooter on campus must purchase a motorcycle permit. Motorcycle permits follow the same pricing structure as standard vehicle permits. Motorcycle permits are $70.00. Motorcycles must obey all parking and traffic regulations and should be parked in the student’s designated area.
Married Housing Permits
Married students living on campus must purchase a Married Housing Permit for each vehicle on campus. They may use the family discount of purchasing one permit at $70.00 and the second permit at $10.00. They will be issued a Married Housing permit to be attached to each of their vehicles.
Temporary Medical Permits
Medical permits are issued to students with a temporary or permanent medical condition who do not otherwise qualify for a state-mandated handicapped parking permit, plaque, or license plate (such as a broken foot, a temporary illness, etc.). Students wishing to obtain a medical permit may do so by bringing a note from their doctor stating their need for special parking and length of time for the permit to the Office of Campus Safety and Security office and applying for a medical parking permit. (Note: a medical permit does not negate the need for a current year permit.) Students with a medical permit may legally park in any yellow or white space convenient to the buildings they need to access. However, students with an NGU medical permit may not park in any off-campus state-mandated accessible parking spaces.
Family Permits and Discounts
If two students or more are members of the same household, one family must purchase one $70.00 permit, and the other family member may purchase their 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
Dual Enrollment Students
Dual Enrollment Students are charged a $15.00 fee added to their bill by the registrar’s office. To purchase a permit, students must visit the Office of Campus Safety and Security.
If you have any questions or problems ordering our permit, please come to the Office of Campus Safety and Security. A safety or security officer will be available to help you during normal business hours.
