In order to park a motor vehicle in any University parking area, all students must register the vehicle with the Department of Public Safety and obtain a current parking permit. This is done through the University of Hartford self-service portal or the Public Safety website, http://publicsafety.hartford.edu. The permit must be purchased prior to or immediately upon bringing the vehicle to campus. Students will be billed for the parking permit. Permits are not transferable to another person or vehicle.
If, for any reason, students must operate a motor vehicle not displaying a University of Hartford parking permit, they must post the vehicle online through the University of Hartford’s self-service portal or the Public Safety website, or visit the Department of Public Safety office immediately upon arrival on campus to register the vehicle registration number, state, parking location, and other required information so that the vehicle will not be ticketed. Commuters who alternate the use of two vehicles may obtain a permit for the second vehicle at a reduced rate upon verification of ownership.
Prior to 4:30 p.m., commuter students may park in lots B, K Commuter, and A Annex (at the rear of A lot), in the unrestricted red spaces of D lot, and in areas of lots C and F. After 4:30 p.m., commuter parking is allowed in the above-noted areas and in nonreserved spaces in lots A, H, Gengras staff lot, and K faculty/staff lot. Commuters may also park in the front lot of the Sports Center when the facility is open and in front of the residence complexes, University Commons, and Regents Park from 7 a.m. to midnight.
Resident students are assigned to resident parking lots on a first-come, first-served basis. Students must follow the procedure for registration of resident vehicles. This information is posted on the parking page of the Department of Public Safety website.
All students registering vehicles for parking online are directed to “Your Car on Campus,” an electronic brochure of the rules and regulations governing operating and parking a vehicle on campus, as well as a list of resident parking lots. It is recommended that a copy of the brochure be printed for reference when the parking agreement is signed electronically.
Please note that the University of Hartford is primarily a pedestrian community, and Connecticut state law dictates that pedestrians have the right of way.
