• Read and understand the complete "Parking Regulations".

  • Always park in accordance with the posted regulations, asphalt markings and relevant signage.

  • In gravel parking lots, be sure to park in front of a concrete bumper block indicating a space (one vehicle per block)

  • Your license plate IS your permit. Be sure your license plate number is accurate when registering to avoid unnecessary citations.

  • If your vehicle information changes, such as your license plate or vehicle make and color, be sure to update your account at jmu.aimsparking.com/

  • Make sure to park in such a way that your vehicle license plate is visible from the parking lot traffic lanes. If you do not have a front license plate and would like to back in, you can obtain a special vanity plate from Parking and Transit Services for a one-time fee of $10.

  • Emergency flashers are not a justification to park illegally for any length of time, regardless of the circumstances, and will not be considered by enforcement officers.

  • Obtain a temporary permit if you need to park an unregistered vehicle on campus. Temporary parking permits are available for purchase for $5/Day at Parking and Transit services or online at jmu.aimsparking.com/.

  • Report a disabled vehicle to Parking and Transit Services immediately, by phone or email. Citations issued to disabled vehicles may only be dismissed if notification is made prior to the time the citation is issued.

  • Do not park your vehicle in a pay station space if the pay station is malfunctioning.
  • Obtain a loading and unloading permit from Parking and Transit Services if you need to load or unload items from a vehicle.

  • Do not assume it is okay to park illegally even if others are doing so.

  • Remember that notes left on vehicle windshields are not justification to park illegally and are not considered by enforcement officers.

  • Plan to arrive early to campus during busy times of day in order to allow sufficient time to locate a parking space.

  • Consider alternative transportation, such as the Harrisonburg Public Transit System, if you need to be on campus during a particularly busy time of day.

  • When parking is unavailable in close proximity to your destination, proceed to parking areas on the periphery of campus, where several parking lots retain available space at all times, and walk or ride the Inner Campus Shuttle (ICS) to your destination.

  • If you are at all uncertain about whether or not it is appropriate to park your vehicle at a particular location, contact Parking and Transit Services at 540.568.3300 to inquire before parking your vehicle.
