Violations & Penalties

Violations of the Marymount University Parking Rules and Regulations include
  • parking in a fire lane
  • parking in an inappropriate area (any area other than those designated as Student Parking)
  • parking in any “Reserved” space, such as those for faculty, administration, handicapped
  • no permit or improperly displayed permit
  • parking in two spaces, wheels extended over white line
  • parking where there is no designated space
  • parking on a yellow line
  • blocking the flow of traffic
  • speeding or reckless driving
  • failure to obey traffic direction
  • failure to obey traffic sign
  • abuse of Guest Pass privilege
  • two cars registered in the same name parked on campus at one time
  • parking in a coned or taped-off space
Violations are placed on the windshield of the vehicle, and fines are indicated on the violation form. Fines are cumulative and double after 30 days from the date of issue.

There will be no warnings issued. Security personnel cannot void violations. Any student wishing to appeal a violation must fill out an Appeal Form, available at the ID and Parking Office, the Main Security Station, or the Ballston Security Station, within seven days of the date of violation. Appeal decisions will be returned through the mail.

Some violations, such as parking in a fire lane or blocking the flow of traffic, parking a nonregistered vehicle, or failure to pay fines, may warrant the immediate placement of a boot on a vehicle or towing of the violating vehicle. Marymount is not responsible for any damage sustained by a vehicle due to the placement of a boot on the wheel.

The penalty for removal of a boot is $80 in addition to the parking violation fine. Failure to pay for the removal of the boot within three days may result in the vehicle being towed from the campus at the expense of the person to whom the car is registered.

Payment of Fines
Violation fines may be paid by cash, check, or credit card at the Cashier’s Office. Failure to pay parking fines may result in the withholding of the privileges of registration, transcripts, and graduation, as well as booting or towing.
