Parking and Vehicles


  1. All student, faculty and staff vehicles at the University of Mount Union must be registered and identified with a parking decal obtained from Campus Security. There is no fee for registering vehicles. Vehicles must be registered at Campus Security or by filling out the online form.
  2. Student decals will be based upon residency. If your residency changes during the academic year, you are responsible for contacting Campus Security to obtain a new decal.
  3. Student parking registrations expire at the end of the academic year or when a student ceases to be enrolled at the University of Mount Union.


  1. Acceptance of a Mount Union parking permit is an acknowledgement by the registrant that these parking policies have been read and understood and constitutes an agreement by the registrant to abide by the parking policies.
  2.  The decal must be placed at the bottom of the passenger side windshield and the barcode must be completely visible from the outside.
  3. If a new vehicle is purchased (even if you still have 30-day tags) or any vehicle information should change, a new decal
    must be obtained from Campus Security.
  4. Theft, vandalism or trading of decals is strictly prohibited and will result in disciplinary action.
  5. Issuance of a parking permit does not assure the driver of an open parking space. Lack of a space is not considered a valid excuse for violation of the regulations.


If anyone feels that they have been ticketed in error, they can file an appeal to have the ticket voided. Appeals must be filed within seven calendar days of the infraction date. The appeal formis available on iRaider under Forms then Vehicles. They are also available in the Campus Security lobby and in Student Affairs.  Appeals filed after seven calendar days will not be accepted, and the fine must be paid at the Office of Business Affairs.
