The authority for establishing traffic and parking regulations on the Minnesota State Colleges and
Universities campuses is granted by Minnesota Statute Section 169.966 Subd. 8 (1988). These
regulations have been approved by the College President pursuant to the statute. These rules shall
remain in effect until modified by the college.
These regulations apply only to the College campus property. Streets around the campus and
adjoining neighborhood are governed by state law and the City of Saint Paul ordinances.
Driving and parking on campus is permitted in accordance with these regulations, which are
designed for safety and to control movement of vehicles. All persons operating a vehicle on
campus are responsible for being familiar with and complying with all traffic and parking
regulations. These regulations are designed to provide maximum use of the parking facilities at
the College and to insure that everyone (students, faculty, staff or visitors) has an equal
opportunity to park. It is the goal of the College to provide fair and equal enforcement for all users.
A Saint Paul College parking access card or short-term parking access ticket allows parking in
designated campus parking lots and the parking ramp. The responsibility for finding a legal
parking space rests with the vehicle operator. Lack of space is not considered a valid excuse for
violation of parking regulations.
The College assumes no liability for care of, damage to, and/or protection of any vehicle or its
contents at any time while it is operated on or parked on the campus property. All vehicles should
be locked when left unattended.
Drivers shall observe the college traffic and parking regulations and drive safely, giving
pedestrians the right of way at all times.
The College reserves the rights to ticket, immobilize, and/or tow any vehicle, at the owner’s
expense, that is in violation of established parking regulations. Persistent violators, in addition,
may have their privileges denied and/or be subject to sanctions under the student code of conduct.
If your vehicle is immobilized, a fee will be added to your total fine.
