 Parking Violations, Enforcement, and Penalties Information

College of Arts & Sciences Resident Parking

Freshmen and Sophomores living on campus in Bethel housing can obtain parking permits only under specific circumstances. Learn more about the process for our needs-based permit appeals process for freshmen and sophomores living in residence halls.

Juniors & Seniors by credit are allowed to register one vehicle to use for the academic year. Permit and parking lot assignments are determined by housing status and housing location.

College of Arts & Sciences Commuter Parking

All commuters are automatically charged a $100 to their Bethel Account per semester for the upkeep of lots and roadways regardless of whether or not they apply for a permit.  Commuters with situations that do not require them to bring a vehicle to campus are allowed to appeal the fee. Appeals must be received within 30 days of the beginning of each semester in order to be processed. Appeals after that deadline will not be processed.

Commuters are refunded $10 to their Bethel account upon receiving their permit.
