Parking

Assumption University students, faculty and staff who park on campus must have a valid Assumption University parking decal properly displayed in the lower left-hand corner of the windshield. Vehicles must be registered each year with the Department of Public Safety.

Visitors will find reserved spaces at the University, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Getting Your Parking Permit

Step 2. Pay for your parking permit on the Payment Gateway.
Step 3. Bring your completed Parking Permit Application, proof of payment, your vehicle registration, and your Assumption University ID to the Department of Public Safety located in the lower level of Kennedy Memorial Hall. (Out of state residents must also provide proof of auto insurance.)

Parking Management System

As we begin the 2021 – 2022 academic year, the University will utilize a streamlined parking management system. 

FACULTY, STAFF AND GRADUATE STUDENTS
• Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students will be assigned to RED parking lots.
• Faculty, Staff and Graduate Students shall be issued RED parking permits.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS
• All Student parking lots are available for any undergraduate student, regardless of their status as a resident or commuter. 
• Student parking lots are all first come/first serve.
• Students will be issued BLUE parking permits.

FIRST-YEAR STUDENT PARKING EXEMPTION
First-year Student Exemption Permits shall be issued on a case by case basis in accordance with University policy. First-year Student Exemptions will be assigned GREEN Permits. A first-year student issued an Exemption Permit shall be restricted to Lot D. (Hanrahan, Nault, Young Lot)

Parking on campus roadways is prohibited unless the roadway is specifically marked as an authorized parking spot. All roadways without markings shall be considered FIRE LANES, and parking is prohibited except for emergency vehicles. Parking on marked roadway spaces is prohibited between 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Designated Handicapped parking shall only be used by a vehicle displaying a properly issued Handicapped Parking permit issued by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and / or a Temporary Disability permit issued by Assumption Public Safety. 

Helpful Tips

  • Visitor parking is reserved Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • All roads are considered fire lanes and must be kept open for emergencies.
  • All vehicles must be parked entirely within lined spaces. An improperly parked vehicle in an adjacent space does not constitute an excuse for straddling the painted line.
  • Yellow lines in diagonal hash patterns indicate NO PARKING areas.
  • Blocking access to building, stairs, walkways, loading zones, or fire lanes is not allowed.
  • Parking is not allowed on grass or sidewalks.
  • Any vehicle parked within 10 feet of a fire hydrant, obstructing a fire lane, or obstructing snow removal is subject to citation and the vehicle may be immediately towed off campus at the owner’s expense.
  • Any vehicle abandoned, banned from campus, obstructing the free passage of vehicular traffic on any campus roadway or parking lot, or parked in delivery zones is subject to citation and the vehicle may be immediately towed off campus at the owner’s expense.

Parking Violations

The responsibility for finding a legal parking space rests on the vehicle's operator/person with the parking permit. Lack of space, mechanical problems, and inclement weather are not considered valid excuses for violation of parking regulations. Violation of parking regulations is subject to a citation. Possession or use of a lost, stolen, forged or altered parking permit or temporary permit will result in a fine equal to the amount to the value of the permit.
