Tickets & Citations

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 are 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 to the Cashier’s Office located in Rauch, Room 123.

If a vehicle receives more than three citations in an academic year, the vehicle may be towed at the owner’s expense, and the student may be referred to the judicial board.  First year student violations may be towed and referred to the judicial board on the first offense.

Written Citation Appeal

Appeals must be made by completing the online ticket appeal form and submitted within fourteen 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 first-years are not allowed to appeal parking tickets.

Once a written appeal is submitted it will be heard and processed by the Student Parking Appeals Board. A staff member from the Division of Student Affairs will be available to serve as an advisor at each meeting. The members of the student appeals board will meet weekly to process available appeals. You will receive a decision from the board within 10 business days of your submission. If your appeal has been approved or reduced, the associated fee will be adjusted within 14 business days.  If your initial appeal is denied, a final appeal may be granted and heard by the Chief of Police at his/her discretion.

Before entering a written citation appeal please be aware of these general rules: Locating a legal parking space is the responsibility of the vehicle’s operator. All vehicles parked on Bentley property must be properly registered and insured. Vehicles left on university property without valid registration plates are subject to removal at the owner's expense. Vehicles must be parked in white lined parking spaces only unless the proper HP placard or plate allows you to park in the blue lined HP spaces.
