Jacksonville State University Police Department has the authority to promulgate and enforce rules and regulations for the operation and parking of motor vehicles on campus. The responsibility of obtaining knowledge of the 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.
These regulations are provided and enforced to ensure the safety of drivers, pedestrians and property, as well as provide adequate parking facilities for all who drive a vehicle on the Jacksonville State University campus. A parking and traffic plan can be successful only when all faculty, staff, students, non-JSU personnel, and visitors abide by the governing regulations.
Each visitor who operates a vehicle on campus must obtain a visitor parking pass issued by the University Police Department or the building manager or their alternate for the building you are visiting. Visitor passes are available free of charge to visitors and must be displayed on the front dash passenger side. Visitors may park in any legal parking space on Campus except for reserved parking spaces, unmarked white curbs or other identifying methods. White curbs with or without designated signage are reserved parking spaces. State parking laws such as yellow curbs, accessible parking, etc. are enforced at all times. Failure to obtain a visitor parking permit may result in parking citations. Visitor permits are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week at UPD. Visitor permits are valid for maximum of 1 day.
For frequent visitors or guests, permanent decals will be made available at the University Police Department for a fee of $50.00. If you have applied for and purchased a Jacksonville State University license plate from the Division of Motor Vehicles, you are eligible for one (1) complimentary University parking permit each year. Visitors must provide the following information to the University Police Department when applying for a permanent visitor decal:
Name and Address

Current faculty, staff, and students are prohibited from operating a vehicle utilizing a visitor pass. Persons who repeatedly violate parking rules and regulations or misuse a pass or decal are subject to having their privileges revoked and may face disciplinary and/or criminal actions.
