Student Housing Resident Parking
The Student Housing Resident Parking is an effort to address the specific needs of residents in Housing Buildings 1000, 2000 and 3000 where the demands for overnight and extended stay parking are considered to be greatest.
Only individuals issued a “Housing Resident” decal are authorized to park in the Building 1000 parking lot. All Student Housing residents registering a vehicle on campus will be issued a Student Housing Resident decal for their vehicle. This decal is required to park in the Student Housing resident only parking lot.
Only Housing staff who are issued a resident parking decal are authorized to park in the Building 1000 parking lot.
Authorized visitors must go to the Parking Office and request a temporary Student Housing Resident Parking visitor pass. The temporary Student Housing Resident Parking visitor pass must be displayed in the windshield of the vehicle.

Alternative Fuel Vehicle Charging Stations
Faculty, staff, and students wishing to use one of the stations on campus must first purchase an ECS permit. Currently, electric charging stations on campus are considered a shared resource. The stations are installed to help supplement ECS permit holders' energy needs when they are away from home. Individual ECS permit holders should not expect to have a dedicated space available to them at all times.
To balance demand, ECS permit holders may need to relocate to a recharging station that has fewer requests. If ECS permit holders do not need to charge their vehicles, we strongly encourage you to park elsewhere in the lot. Once charging is complete, owners will be required to move their vehicles from the charging station.
Non-ECS vehicles or ECS vehicles not displaying the Georgia Alternative License Plate that are parked in a charging station will be ticketed by parking enforcement officers.

Normally, a campus visitor or guest in violation of state law or city ordinances will be arrested or issued an ordinance violation citation. All campus regulations and city ordinances are enforced 24 hours a day.
Payment of Fines

Students’ grades, future registration, records and diplomas will be held until all fines are paid. All citations may be appealed within seven days of the date of violation.
