Campus Parking
Jacksonville State University Police Department has the authority to enforce rules and regulations for the operation and parking of motor vehicles on campus. The responsibility for knowing these parking and traffic regulations rests with the motor vehicle operator. These rules and regulations are subject to enforcement on a year-round basis regardless of whether or not school is in session.

Visitors and guests must secure a "Visitor Parking Permit" from the University Police Department (UPD) in Salls Hall on Forney Avenue, Visitor Center, or the building manager for the specific buildings visited. Visitor permits are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week at UPD. Visitor permits are valid for a maximum of 10 business days and may be used to park in valid parking space. Unmarked white curbs are for university vehicles only, and certain parking spaces are restricted by regulatory signs. There is no parking on Trustee Circle or at the Gamecock Express Central Station.

For further information about parking on campus - including designated parking zones - please visit: Parking Regulations.
