Vehicle Registration / Parking Permits

To ensure the safety and security of all students and employees, all vehicles operated on campus must be registered with the Campus Security office within 72 hours of arrival on campus. This policy applies to both North and South Campuses.

How to register your vehicle:

  1. Register your vehicle in person with Campus Security, located in Stott’s Administration Building, Room 45. It may be necessary to call 304.865.6258 to reach the on-duty guard. New students will be registered during school registration.
  2. A parking permit will be issued by Campus Security for the registered vehicle. If more than one vehicle is to be used on campus, separate permits will be issued for each vehicle. Permits will be available for pickup depending on the status of the driver. For instance, commuters may be able to retrieve their permits from the receptionist, but campus residents may receive theirs on move-in day. Due to the transient nature of security guards, regular office hours are difficult to predict. Please contact Campus Security at 304.865.6258 with questions about how to receive a permit.
  3. Parking and Registration is free. However, failure to register a vehicle will result in a $50.00 fine, not to exceed one fine per calendar week.

Any change in vehicle ownership or status, including the use of a borrowed, unregistered vehicle, should be reported to Campus Security within two business days. OVU community members should be aware that unreported changes may result in ticketing, and that the ticket remains valid after the changes have been reported.

Appeals and Enforcement

Fines for parking violations may be appealed by calling 304.865.6015 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

After 72 business hours, if a successful appeal has not been made fines will be applied to the student accounts.

All fines may be paid in the OVU Business Office.
