Special Notice: Blue Garage Upper Deck Closure During Inclement Weather Events

The warranty for the repairs performed to the Blue Garage last summer require that we do not plow or salt the upper deck. Therefore, going forward, during all inclement weather events, the top level of the Blue Garage will be closed. We request that all personal vehicles be parked in the covered parking spaces of either the Blue or White Garage during such periods. Please note: the top level of the Blue Garage will not be accessible until after the inclement weather event concludes.



The ID and Parking Office at Marymount facilitates the issuing and distribution of parking permits, as well as parking rules and regulations, for eligible students. Faculty and staff parking permits are issued and distributed through the Human Resources Department. Because parking at Marymount is limited, students are encouraged to use Metro and free MU Shuttles.


Students parking vehicles on campus must obtain and display a current Marymount parking permit available from the ID and Parking Office. Students with parking permits may park only in their assigned lot while attending class or a University function.

Appeals

There will be no warnings issued. Security personnel cannot void violations. Any student wishing to appeal a violation must fill out an Appeal Form, available at the ID and Parking Office, the Campus Safety Guard House, or the 4040 Campus Safety Desk, within seven days of the date of violation. Appeal decisions will be returned through the mail.

Booting/Towing

Some violations, such as parking in a fire lane or blocking the flow of traffic, parking a nonregistered vehicle, or failure to pay fines, may warrant the immediate placement of a boot on a vehicle or towing of the violating vehicle. Marymount is not responsible for any damage sustained by a vehicle due to the placement of a boot on the wheel.
The penalty for removal of a boot is $100 in addition to the parking violation fine. Failure to pay for the removal of the boot within three days may result in the vehicle being towed from the campus at the expense of the person to whom the car is registered.

Payment of Fines

Violation fines may be paid by cash, check, or credit card at the Cashier’s Office. Failure to pay parking fines may result in the withholding of the privileges of registration, transcripts, and graduation, as well as booting or towing.
