Definition of a Visitor: Persons not connected with the university who occasionally has reasons to be on campus.
Visitors and guests must register their vehicles and receive a Temporary Parking Pass, which will be valid for a set period. Decal holders who drive on campus in a vehicle without a decal (rental car, leased vehicle, borrowed) must apply for a Temporary Parking Pass at the Department of Public Safety. Visitors dining and parking in the Chick-Fil-A designated spots or visiting the book store at the Maddox Student Activity Center are exempt from this requirement. The Driver is to provide a vehicle description, contact information, and the expected period the vehicle will be on campus. The Temporary Parking Pass will be placed on the dashboard with the verbiage facing the front windshield.
