Dos and Don'ts

  • DO contact the Murray State University Parking Office with parking questions at (270) 809-4812 or email us.  Other sources of information may be unreliable.
  • DO observe the signs in each lot.  The signs will indicate what type of permit is required there.  All vehicles parking on campus must have a current permit (visitors included).
  • DO update your permit information with the Parking Office, when changing vehicles or license plates.
  • DO familiarize yourself with all the parking regulations.  If you drive on campus, this is your responsibility.
  • DO park carefully, within a defined parking space, to avoid a citation for improper parking.
  • DO understand that parking tickets are issued 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week.
  • DO leave permit displayed in vehicle at all times, unobstructed on rear-view mirror.
  • DO contact Public Safety immediately if permit is lost, misplaced, left, or stolen to get replacement.
  • DON'T assume that because others have parked illegally you may do so.
  • DON'T park on yellow lines, fire lanes, etc. with your hazard lights on, this will not prevent you from receiving a citation.
  • DON'T park anywhere that is not designated as a parking space.  A parking space is defined by two white lines on either side of the vehicle.
  • DON'T park in a disability space without a Murray State University issued disability permit.
  • DON'T trade permits with friends.  If your friend is using your permit or vehicle and receives a citation you are responsible for the citation.
  • DON'T purchase or accept a permit from anyone except Murray State University Parking Office.  Parking permits purchased from private individuals are invalid and may be stolen.
