  1. Set standards for appropriate use of College-owned, leased and rented vehicles (or personal vehicles being used for College related business) by faculty, staff and students.
  2. Reduce the frequency and cost of motor vehicle accidents.
  3. Provide and require training, as needed.

Parking Violations

Dartmouth Transportation Services and the Department of Safety and Security monitor parking lots, issue citations, immobilize and tow vehicles in violation of parking regulations

Violating Dartmouth College parking regulations can result in citation, loss of parking privileges, vehicle immobilization and towing at the owner’s expense.

Permanent Loss of Parking Spaces to Construction

It is important that project planning mitigates the potential for permanent parking space loss throughout planning and building phases. However, it is understood that even after careful vetting of options, sometimes losing parking spaces may be the best option for Dartmouth.

Student Driver Policy

The Student Driver Policy provides additional requirements for student drivers to assure their safety in operating vehicles on behalf of College business.

Temporary Parking Measures During Construction

Due to limited parking resources for employees and visitors on campus, senior leadership wants to limit the impact of the loss of parking. Additionally, no matter how large or small the construction project, extensive communication to impacted parking users is required. This policy aims to create clarity for all internal project managers.

Vehicle Registration for Students

This policy is intended to safeguard vehicles on campus, to be able to contact vehicle owners in a timely basis, and to consistently apply regulations to vehicles that are parked illegally.
