Section I: Introduction

The University Police Department is staffed 24 hours a day. The following guide to Campus Parking and Traffic Regulations has been prepared by the SUNY Delhi University Police. The University Police Department is the campus law enforcement agency. All vehicles that are operated or parked on college property must be registered at the University Police office with either a fixed decal (for students and staff) or a visitor’s pass (for visitors).

SUNY Delhi Parking Fee

  • The annual parking fee is $162.00 including tax. This fee is for full-time students (12 credits or more). Part-time students (11 credits or fewer) pay by credit hour, $6.25 plus sales tax per credit hour.
  • Additional Vehicles - $10 plus tax will be charged for any second or subsequent vehicles. Students may not register vehicles belonging to friends or other students as their own second vehicle.
  • Motorcycles are charged an annual parking fee that is 50% of the full annual fee.
  • A car or truck cannot be registered “after” a motorcycle as a “subsequent” vehicle for the $10 fee.
  • Lost Decal – If a decal is lost, the owner will be required to pay a replacement fee of $15 plus tax.


The University Police are authorized to tow, at the owner’s expense: any motor vehicle parked illegally in any posted tow-away zone on campus; any abandoned vehicle; a vehicle parked illegally in a handicapped space; a vehicle blocking a drive or a dumpster, or a vehicle blocking a building’s emergency exit. Individuals who receive more than six (6) parking violation notices during any two consecutive semester periods will have their privilege to operate a vehicle on campus revoked and their parking fee will be non- refundable.  This rule also applies to tickets which have been paid. This revocation means that you will not be allowed to drive or park a vehicle on SUNY Delhi roadways or parking lots. Restricted vehicles found on campus will be towed off campus at the owner’s expense.

Section II: Designated Parking Areas

  • Commuter Students – Designated areas of Lower (G) lot, back campus roadway (except F Permit spaces), and all of Track lot.
    Commuter parking areas must be vacated from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.

  • All parking lots (and roadways), except those areas designated for Resident Students, MUST BE vacated from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m.
  • Overnight guests must register at UPD and park in designated overnight areas.
  • Note: Weekdays from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. and Friday from 5 p.m. until Sunday at 11 p.m., staff/student designation and registration requirements are waived. Waiver does not apply to restricted/reserved areas.

Parking Regulations

Parking is prohibited as follows in “No Parking” areas: in handicapped spaces without a proper handicap permit; in areas that block doorways or dumpsters; on lawns, sidewalks or crosswalks; in reserved or restricted parking spaces; in parking lot entrance ways; in the president’s parking space; on roadways or straddling painted lines. Vehicles parked in these areas are subject to towing at the owner’s expense.

Section III: Veteran Parking Fee Waiver

Any veteran, as defined in Section 360 of the New York State Education Law and who has been honorably discharged, may have their campus vehicle registration fee waived. Veterans may register one car for free and a second car for $10 plus tax. They may only register their own personal vehicles.  Qualified veterans must provide verified documentation (DD214) of this status to the Campus Veteran Affairs Coordinator and/or to the University Police Department.

Driver Responsibilities

  • Space Availability – A parking decal does not guarantee the holder a parking space, it only authorizes you to park in specified areas on a space-available basis. Drivers are responsible for finding an authorized parking space. Lack of parking space, mechanical problems or inclement weather do not justify parking in unauthorized areas.
  • Decal Ownership – A parking decal signifies an individual has been granted the privilege of parking on college property. The college reserves the right to revoke this privilege if the user refuses to comply with the college’s Campus Parking and Traffic Regulations.
  • Decal Display – Parking decals or passes must be displayed according to the campus parking regulations or special instructions that were given when the decal was issued. A parking decal, temporary permit or hang tag is only considered valid when it is properly affixed to, or displayed on, the vehicle as instructed.

Handicapped Parking

SUNY Delhi provides handicapped parking access to all eligible individuals. For more information, please contact University Police.

Section IV: Replacement Vehicles

When a person replaces one vehicle with another, it is necessary to remove the decal from the window and bring it to University Police to apply for a new decal. A $15 plus tax fee will be charged unless the old decal is returned to UPD. Students who park a replacement or borrowed vehicle on campus must register the vehicle prior to parking on campus. UPD is staffed 24 hours a day and temporary permits are available.


Parking fee refunds will be made for individuals who leave the college (e.g., withdrawal of a student) and who request the refund. The refund request must be made in writing within 30 days of separation or discontinuance of use. The applicant must also return the decal to University Police.

  • If an individual has paid for the full year and leaves before the end of the second week of classes of the fall semester, a refund will be issued equal to the initial charge, less $10.80.
  • If an individual has paid for the full year and leaves during the fall semester after the end of the second week of classes, a refund will be issued equal to the spring semester fee, less $10.80.
  • If an individual has paid for the full year (or half year) and leaves before the end of the second week of classes during the spring semester, the half year fee will be refunded, less $10.80.
  • No refunds will be issued after the end of the second week of classes for the spring semester.

Parking Fines

Violations of SUNY Delhi's Campus Parking and Traffic Regulations are subject to imposition of fines, payable at the Student Financial Services window within ten (10) days of issuance.  Such fine shall be $30 for the first violation, and $40 for each subsequent violation. For each violation of regulations or rules related to handicapped parking areas, the fine shall be $150.

Failure to pay fines will result in withholding of college records, referral to the State Attorney General’s Office and coordination with the Department of Motor Vehicles under scofflaw procedures for denial of registration renewals. Appeals must be submitted in writing, with a copy of the parking violation complaint, to University Police within five (5) business days after receipt of complaint.

Special Notes

Students are responsible for reading all posted signs and complying. Failure to understand signage designation does not remove the student’s responsibility to obey the campus parking rules and regulations.
