Parking Regulations for Students, Faculty and Staff
*Any misuse of parking privileges by a permit holder will result in the said individual being responsible for all accrued parking charges. Parking permits are the property of Duquesne University and cannot be used to allow individuals, other than themselves, access or exiting parking privileges. Failure to uphold this principle can lead to complete expulsion of parking privileges and/or turned over to the Department of Public Safety as theft of services, and/or Student Conduct. Only one vehicle can be parked on campus at any time.*
Posted signs at all streets that lead onto campus inform: Private Property / Parking by Permit Only / Strictly Enforced. A parking permit is required to park on campus streets during enforcement hours. This includes but is not limited to designated handicap parking spaces.
Please abide by all posted parking regulations. Parking is enforced in order to provide adequate parking for our students and employees. Parking permits are required during enforcement hours. Students and employees who do not purchase parking permits should still register their vehicles. Parking fines range between $10 and $100.
All Duquesne University parking fees and rates, as well as the policies that govern the parking program, are subject to change at the University's discretion. The University has no control over fines for State citations or the charge for towing.

Regulations on Parking Permit/ Event Rate Card Applications for Students and Employees
The Duquesne University parking permit is a license, not a bailment.
The purchase of a parking permit is authorization to park within a specified area or areas on University controlled property. No liability is created by the granting of parking or vehicle operating privileges on property owned, leased or otherwise controlled by the University. The University assumes no responsibility for the care or protection of vehicles or their contents while operated or parked on University property. Officers of the Departments of Public Safety do patrol all University parking facilities.
All parking permits and proximity cards remain the property of Duquesne University and must be surrendered upon demand. Parking permits are intended for the exclusive use of the purchaser and are not transferable. The unauthorized transfer of a parking permit will result in the loss of parking privileges and could result in the issuance of traffic citations and / or towing. The purchaser is responsible for any and all University citations issued to the vehicles listed and / or issued to any vehicle in which their permit is displayed. Commuter parking permit holders are only valid to park on campus between the hours of 5:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m. (E.R. Card applications: Please note that there is NO overnight parking for daily visitors in the garage). No commuter permit holder is permitted to park any vehicle on Duquesne University property between the hours of 2:00 a.m. through 5:00 a.m. Any violations will be subjected to a citation.
In any case, lack of space is NOT considered a valid excuse for violation of any parking regulation.
