General Procedures

On Campus Vehicle Guidelines

Parking Permit Application


Enforcement of Policies

Policy enforcement includes issuance of parking citations or moving violation citations by authorized Seminary personnel and/or other professionals who may be contracted by the Seminary. Vehicles may be towed if the situation warrants. Citations must be paid at the Campus Operations Group (COG) front desk. Citations remaining unpaid are charged to the student’s account. Students, residents, faculty and staff are expected to model integrity in following the Seminary Parking Policies so our witness is not tarnished to guests and friends of the seminary who visit our campus.

Questions on any of these policies can be directed to Jay Stimson at or 303.357.5818.
