Moving Out of On-Campus Housing – Parking Instructions

Good afternoon, LSU! As the end of the semester approaches, many of you will be moving out of on-campus housing. Please take note of the following information as it pertains to the visitors assisting students that are moving out.

All visitors to campus that are assisting students must be parked within a legal parking space and parked correctly (i.e. not backed into a diagonal parking space, not double parked, etc.) in order to not receive a violation.

Patrons parked within a handicapped space, fire lane, no parking zones, etc. are subject to receive a violation and possibly even be towed if it prevents a safety hazard (parking within handicapped spaces and fire lanes are towable offenses). Parking within any of these spaces with hazard lights activated does not guarantee this person will not receive a violation per our rules and regulations (University Traffic Summonses/Citations; Paragraphs: 44-51).

If a patron believes he or she should not have received a violation, we encourage him or her to fill out an appeal online on our website atwww.lsu.edu/parking under “Appeal a Citation or a Tow”. Also, they may contact our office at (225) 578-5000.
