& Regulations > Vehicle Registration
All faculty, staff, students, and visitors who park vehicles on University property must register their vehicles with Parking Services and display a parking permit
when parked on campus. Commuters who use more than one vehicle must register all vehicles with Parking Services and can then move the valid permit between the registered vehicles.
Registration can be accomplished through our Web site, by mail, by phone, or at the Parking Services office.
All parking permits are the property of Washington
University. Permits are to be returned immediately upon termination
of employment or registration, or at the request of the University.
All parking permits must be obtained and used according
to departmental rules and regulations.
The person to whom a vehicle is registered will be held fully responsible for all violations assigned to that vehicle.
When a registrant disposes of or sells a vehicle, the permit should be removed and Parking Services notified so the registrant will no longer be held responsible
for tickets the vehicle might receive.
All vehicles that belong to the immediate family of a University faculty, staff, or student, whether registered with the University or not, will be considered the
responsibility of that individual. Any parking violations charged against that vehicle will be the responsibility of the individual.
Unregistered vehicles with outstanding violations will be identified through the vehicle plate information using the state registration system. An additional fine
of $15.00 could be applied if a vehicle is not registered with Parking Services, making this additional step necessary.
