Issuance of Parking Citations
If you are issued a parking citation, it will be attached to your vehicle, handed to you, or mailed. We maintain a database of all tickets processed through our automated ticketing system.
Parking Citation Fines
Payment of fines is required upon receipt of the parking violation. These fines will be billed to your account. Until payment is made, a registrar’s hold will be placed on your account, which will preventing you from registering for classes.
Payment may be made by personal check made payable to Bentley University and mailed to the Cashier’s Office, Bentley University, 175 Forest Street, Waltham, MA 02452. Payment may also be made directly at the Cashier’s Office located in Rauch, Room 123.
If a vehicle receives more than three parking tickets in an academic year, the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense. The dean of student affairs will be notified, in writing, upon the third parking violation in an academic year for consideration of judicial sanctions. In the case of freshmen students who violate the parking restrictions, the dean of student affairs will be notified upon the first violation.
Parking Ticket Appeals
Only appeals for legitimate discrepancies regarding the current parking policy will be heard. Appeals must be made by completing the online ticket appeal form and submitted within five days of the violation. If you were illegally parked for any reason, for any amount of time, your appeal will be denied. Opinions about the fairness of the fines or parking rules are not grounds for having a parking ticket overturned. Resident freshmen are not allowed to appeal parking tickets.
