Avoid a Ticket: Helping You Out

Walk, ride a bike or take the bus

Go Green RIT…The RIT campus is pedestrian friendly, so choose to walk! We have many bike parking amenities and bike routes. Campus shuttle services are free to university members. Campus shuttles provide service to on campus academic, housing and commercial/restaurant areas. Check out the latest bus schedules.


Read the Parking Notifications

The Parking Office sends out notifications related to service updates, registration and permit sales, special events and lot closures via the RIT Message Center. Make sure you have opted in to receive direct emails from the myRIT Message Center. Another option is to check the parking website for news.


Register your vehicle

If you are attending or working at the university, you must register your vehicle with the Parking Office. Use our on-line services "myParking Account" for university members with computer accounts or download the Vehicle Registration form and send it to the Parking Office.


Find your lot

Park only in lots where your permit is valid; if you are unsure refer to Where May I Park and the get acquainted with where the lots are located using the Campus Map.


Display your permit

If you have a general or reserve hangtag permit, it must be displayed on your rearview mirror while parked. Failure to do so will result in a citation. If you are a resident student you must affix your sticker to the inside of the back driver side window. If you have a motorcycle, affix your permit where possible or contact the Parking Office for further instructions related to display of "Reserved Parking Permit". If you have a handicapped permit or a temporary permit, make sure to always display them.


Look for signs

Always check your surroundings for parking signs within the lot and at the entrances to each lot. Carefully read the posted signs for restrictions and instructions. Some of these signs are smaller in size than others. Signs may change without notice.


Stay inside the lines

Always make sure your vehicle is parked inside—not on or over—the yellow lines designating a legal parking space. Any other paved area is considered a road or fire lane. Parking is only permitted in clearly defined spaces.


Pay or appeal

You have 10 days to pay or appeal your parking citation. Failure to do so will result in the fine being deemed valid and payable.
