Permits are at all times the property of the Board of Trustees and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Mutilation or alteration of a permit, the purchase or use of a permit under false pretense or the production or use of a counterfeit permit constitutes a violation of the Illinois Criminal Code and may result in prosecution or internal sanctions. A $75 fine and/or referral for disciplinary action to Student Affairs or Human Resources will result. The illegal transfer of permits results in the buyer and seller being fined $75 each. Permits will also be revoked from both parties, who may be referred for discipline as well. The University is not responsible for the care or protection of any motor vehicle or its contents at any time.
Scheduled enforcement of SIU Edwardsville campus (non-residential area) parking regulations occurs from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday. Parking Service Agents are dispatched to the School of Dental Medicine and the East St. Louis Higher Education Campus periodically during the week to enforce parking regulations. There is open parking in all non-residential permit-required lots after 8:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, after 4:30 p.m. on Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday. University Police may write citations anytime, however, as they deem necessary. Ticketing will occur in all Cougar Village and Residence Hall parking lots 24 hours a day ~ 7 days a week. Please note that failure to move a vehicle to an appropriate location after a citation has been issued may result in additional citations being written the same day.
Students/employees who accumulate parking citations will be subject to discipline and towing. Employee cases will be reviewed as deemed appropriate by the Director of Human Resources or his or her designated representative. Student violators fall under the purview of the Dean of Students.
Citations issued for parking and registration violations specify the type of violation and the amount due. A late fee of $10.00 is applied to all citations not paid or appealed within fourteen (14) calendar days. Citations issued to non-registered vehicles belonging to members of a faculty, staff or student's immediate family are the responsibility of the student or employee. Payment of parking fines is accepted by mail or at Parking Services at the Edwardsville campus. Remember to include the citation with your payment if you are paying by mail. Please do not send cash through the mail. Payment may also be made at the Service Center at times when Parking Services is closed. Parking fines may also be paid via the Parking Services website at "Pay Your Citation". NOTE: If you are paying after the fourteen (14) calendar days AND if you have other debt to the University, (i.e., Housing, Tuition, etc.), your payment may not be directed to the citation you are attempting to pay. In that instance, the only way to "target" your payment to a specific citation is to pay in person at the Bursar's Office and request it.
Payment submitted for parking fines or permits may be made by check, cash, money order, Visa, Discover or MasterCard. Loose coin may not exceed $5. Pennies that total $1 or more must be in rolls of $.50 each. Each roll of coins must have printed on it the name and 800 number of the person submitting it for payment.
During break periods when classes are not in session, ticketing occurs in all lots until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Break periods include the spring break week in March and all weeks that classes are not in session between fall, spring and summer semesters. There is open parking during these times in the red or yellow lots.
