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) or online within seven calendar days of the violation. The standard timeframe for an appeal is seven (7) calendar days from the date the citation is issued. If you encountered special circumstances that delayed your appeal request, please include that information in the comments and we will take it into consideration.
Appeals for violations are heard by the University Parking Appeals Committee. 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. Consideration will also be given to the appellant’s history with Washington University Parking and Transportation. The decision of the University Parking Appeals Committee is final.
To appeal a parking citation, choose one of three options:
- Complete an appeal form online.
- Obtain and complete an appeal form by visiting the Parking & Transportation Services office.
- Compose a letter to serve as your appeal. Mail your letter along with your citation to:
