Rules and Regulations for all GSU Campuses

Citations and Appeals

Parking enforcement on all Georgia State University campuses is a year-round program, enforced 24 hours per day. To reduce your chances of being fined, booted or towed, a current valid parking permit should be displayed at all times (as required). PLease refer to your permit for instructions on how it should be displayed. Permits for motorcycles should be displayed on the left, front fork. Georgia State University assumes no responsibility for vehicles or protection of any vehicle or its contents at any time. Valuable contents should be stored out of sight. Expired semester permits for downtown campus students must be returned to Parking and Transportation Services customer service area location at the end of each paid permit period to avoid a $25 non-return fee.

All individuals who receive a parking citation have the right to appeal online within ten (10) working days of the issuance of the citation or the right to appeal is forfeited. If requested, the date and location of the in-person hearing will be e-mailed to the campus e-mail address and provided in Parking Web.
The following are not eligible for appeal:

• Parking in a handicap space without a state issued permit/plate.

• Fee for booting a vehicle.

Parking Services will notify appellants through campus e-mail of the applicable Citation Appeals Board’s decision. The decision of the Appeals Boards is final.

Violation Fees

All parking fines and fees can be paid on Parking Web or at Campus Services’ Customer Service area. Citation(s) and fine(s) not paid or appealed within ten (10) working days are subject to a $10.00 late fee.   Students with unpaid fines/citations may have registration holds placed on their records until the delinquency has been cleared. Unpaid fines and fees owed by Faculty and Staff may be deducted from payroll checks.

If any vehicle is cited repeatedly for violations, Parking Services may, at its discretion, revoke a patron’s parking privilege(s) to park in University parking facilities.  Parking Services and the Georgia State University Police may remove or immobilize a vehicle at the owner’s expense, for violation of parking rules and regulations.
