Additional Parking Information

The ID and Parking Office at Marymount facilitates the issuing and distribution of parking permits, as well as parking rules and regulations, for eligible students. Faculty and staff parking permits are issued and distributed through the Human Resources Department. Because parking at Marymount is limited, students are encouraged to use Metro and free MU Shuttles.

Students parking vehicles on campus must obtain and display a current Marymount parking permit available from the ID and Parking Office. Students with parking permits may park only in their assigned lot while attending class or a University function.

  • Parking in any “Reserved” space, such as those for faculty, administration, handicapped

  • 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 meaning they do not double after 30 days.


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 Campus Safety Guard House, or the 4040 Campus Safety Desk, 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 $130 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.
