Traffic and Parking Rules and Regulations
Article II - General
- The entry, operation and control of motor vehicles on The University of Memphis property are as authorized and directed by the President of The University of Memphis, who may exercise such controls as deemed necessary. The Director of Public Safety, as the President’s representative, is responsible for the enforcement of this code. The Director of Public Safety and the Director of Parking & Transportation Services may exclude or remove from the campus any vehicle that is used as an instrument in a crime; suspected of being stolen or abandoned; mechanically unfit; being operated by a person under the influence of intoxicants or drugs; remove one that has been registered in accordance with this code; or one that parks in violation of these regulations.
- Violators of this code are subject to appropriate disciplinary and/or administrative action.
- The issuance of a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space on University property. The inability to locate a legal parking space does not diminish the responsibility to park in accordance with these parking regulations.
- Motorists may obtain assistance or information from any campus Parking Assistant or Public Safety officer on patrol or by calling Parking & Transportation Services (678-2212) or Police Services (678-4357[HELP]).
POLICE OFFICERS, PARKING ASSISTANTS, FACULTY OR STAFF EMPLOYEES ARE NOT EMPOWERED TO ALLOW ANYONE TO VIOLATE UNIVERSITY TRAFFIC AND PARKING REGULATIONS.
