I've lived in Alliance my whole life. I knew I wanted to stay close to home when I started researching colleges, and I realized that Mount Union was the perfect fit for me. The academics are strong and there is plenty to get involved in on campus. Not to mention, the campus is amazing.

Parking and Vehicles

  1. All student, faculty and staff vehicles at the University of Mount Union must be registered and identified with a permit obtained from Campus Security. There is no fee for registering vehicles. Vehicles must be registered at Campus Security or on iRaider under Forms then Vehicles.
  2. Student tags will be based upon residency. If your residency changes during the academic year, you are responsible for contacting Campus Security to obtain a permit.

Failure to register the vehicle will result in a $100 fine.


  1. Acceptance of a Mount Union parking permit is an acknowledgment 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 hanging tag must be placed on the rearview mirror and 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 permit must be obtained from Campus Security.
  4. Theft, vandalism or trading of tags 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 form is 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.

Schedule of Fines


  • First ticket $50
  • Second ticket $100 and vehicle will be booted (plus $50 to towing service to remove)
  • Third ticket $200 and vehicle is towed and parking permit is revoked (charges from towing service may vary)

Failure to register the vehicle will result in a $100 fine.

Parking fines may be assessed to faculty/staff/graduate students for parking violations in the dedicated-specific Visitor spaces.

If a vehicle has been booted, a towing service must be contacted to remove the restraint from the vehicle. If the restraint is not removed within 24 hours, the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense. Excessive parking violations may also result in disciplinary charges.

Ticket fines will be billed to the student’s or employee’s account and must be paid immediately at the Office of Business Affairs.


All parking lots are patrolled daily and fines will be assessed for, but not limited to, the following violations:

  • Parking in the incorrect area
  • Unregistered vehicle
  • Parking in yellow painted areas
  • Blocking driveway or access
  • Parking on sidewalk or grass
  • Parking in handicap area
  1.  The registrant is responsible for all violations regardless of who is operating the vehicle at the time the violation occurs.
  2. Having your four-way flashers on does not make it acceptable to park in a restricted area (service vehicle, fire lane, handicap, etc.)
  3. Every attempt is made to maintain parking signs, but vehicle operators are expected to park appropriately, even in the absence of signs.
