Parking Fines

The Duquesne University police issue University citations for parking violations. We can also issue Commonwealth of Pennsylvania citations for all moving violations. Vehicles may be towed from campus at the driver’s expense under the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code for repeated or flagrant offenses.

When a vehicle is parked in violation of regulations, the following fines will be assessed to the person who purchased the parking permit or registration for that vehicle.


  • All fines must be paid in full.
  • If you are in violation of more than one regulation you may receive multiple fines.
  • Duplicating or altering a parking permit is strictly prohibited. Any vehicle displaying a duplicated or altered permit will be tagged and towed at the owner's expense. This is a criminal offense, and the perpetrator may be prosecuted.
