Parking Procedures at Rhode Island College
Campus Parking Update - 9/15/14
Beginning Monday, September 15, 2014, all members of the Rhode Island College community will need to have a temporary or permanent parking permit on their vehicles.
Campus Police will begin ticketing violators for parking in unauthorized lots. Tickets will also be issued to vehicles that have no permit on their car.
A member of a contract security firm will be placed at all the entrances to D lot and the entrances to C,U and the Murray Center section of J lot. These security guards will ensure that only vehicles with Faculty/Staff permits, either permanent or temporary, will be allowed to park in those lots. RIC faculty and staff without a permit will be allowed in those parking lots with a valid Faculty/Staff ID Card. Those individuals must, during the course of the day, go to RIC Campus Police and obtain their permit.
All current parking permits with the expiration date of 7/31/2014 will remain in effect. All members of the RIC Community with either new or existing parking permits can continue to come to Campus Police at Browne Hall to receive a validation sticker which will expire on July, 2018. The validation sticker must be placed on the windshield next to your new or existing parking permit.
If you have questions about parking procedures, contact Campus Police at (401) 456-8201.
Rhode Island College has partnered with iParq to institute specific parking procedures for the campus. This is a FREE service offered to our campus community. Under these new procedures, parking lots on campus have been assigned to specific groups of the campus community. Each is color coded differently. Only those vehicles whose colored permit matches the color coded parking lot signage will be allowed to park in that lot. All existing reserved and handicap spaces will remain the same.
