Home > Parking Services > Enforcement > Appeals Process
Any vehicle owner/operator receiving a parking violation notice may contest that violation if there are grounds for appeal. Appeals of violation notices must be submitted to the University Parking Appeals Committee (in writing) within seven calendar days of the violation. Lack of knowledge of these regulations does not constitute valid grounds for appeal. Appeals for parking violations are heard by the University Parking Appeals Committee. This committee is composed of faculty/staff and student representatives. The committee meets monthly during the academic year to adjudicate written appeals. At least three committee members must be in attendance in order to have a quorum. The appellant will be notified of the committee’s decision in writing after the appeal hearing. The committee’s decision will be reached on the merits of the submitted written appeal and with regard to Washington University parking regulations. The decision of the University Parking Appeals Committee is final. Appeals may be submitted in one of the following ways:
- Appeal forms - available from Parking Services.
- In the form of a letter addressed to the University Parking Appeals Committee, c/o Parking and Transportation Services, campus box 1200.
