Frequently Asked Questions
1. I just throw the citations away. Why should I follow the parking regulations?
Parking regulations are in effect to create a fair and safe parking environment. Citations issued by Salisbury University Police are written under the Maryland Uniform Citation Code and carry the weight and importance of citations issued by any law enforcement agency in the state of Maryland. Unpaid fines are placed on the violator’s Gullnet account at the Cashier’s Office. As with any other Gullnet charge, you may pay online, in person at the Cashier’s Office (Holloway Hall 219), or by mail to Salisbury University, Cashier’s Office, P. O. Box 2195, Salisbury, MD 21801.
2. As a part-time or evening commuter student, do I really need to purchase a parking permit?
Yes, everyone is required to purchase a permit if they park on campus. Commuting students may purchase the Evening Only permit that allows parking in the Parking Garage and Main/East Campus lots from 4:45 p.m. until 7:45 a.m. Monday through Friday, except the Maggs lot. Parking in Maggs lot is from 4:45 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.
3. If I have a valid parking permit, can I park at a meter without paying?
No, meters are intended for visitors, although students may utilize parking meters as long as time is on the meter for the period of time the vehicle is parked.
4. What should I do if I lose my parking permit?
If the permit is lost or stolen, it must be reported immediately to the University Police prior to being able to purchase a replacement. The replacement fee is the same amount as the original fee.
5. If I receive a parking citation for "Failure to Register Vehicle" and have a valid parking permit, do I have to pay the fine?
Bring the citation and your vehicle registration card to the Office of Parking Services. Once we have verified you have a valid permit for that vehicle and parking lot, the citation will be voided.
6. How do I purchase a parking permit?
You may purchase your permit online by accessing your GullNet account and following navigation path: Self-Service>Campus Finances>Register for a Parking Permit. You will only be able to select permit types for which you are eligible based on your class standing. If a particular permit type has been sold out at the time of your purchase, it will be noted on the screen and you may select another option. Upon completion of the online portion of the process, take a copy of your printed confirmation page, driver's license and vehicle registration card to the Parking Services Office located in Holloway Hall, Room 219, to complete the registration process and receive your permit according to the posted payment/pick-up schedule (see Parking Permit Application).
7. Is it okay to park in front of a building as long as I put on my flasher for a short period?
No, not even for one minute. If no one is in the vehicle, it is considered a safety violation and a prohibited parking citation may be issued.
