Parking Regulations for the Oxford Campus

Oxford College students that receive 5 or more parking citations per semester are considered repeat offenders and may be referred to Campus Life.  Those alleged to have excessive parking citations on campus are subject to the College disciplinary process where sanctions include, but are not limited to, revocation of parking privileges on the Oxford College campus.

Oxford College expects all members of the community to address fines according to the guidelines outlined in this document and in a timely manner.  Individuals with outstanding fines will not be allowed to purchase or renew permits/passes. Outstanding fines may also result in immobilization of vehicle.  Parking on the Oxford Campus is either designated for visitors or requires the display of a valid permit. The parking system at Oxford College is designed to protect the parking privileges of the permit holders and visitors. The Oxford community is best served when all users of campus parking follow the published guidelines and regulations. 

Parking regulations are subject to change.  Parking configurations may change with campus improvements or modifications.  Acceptance of a parking permit attests to an understanding by the permit holder of all traffic and parking regulations and a consensual agreement and responsibility to adhere to the same. 

  • Registration does not guarantee the availability of a parking space. Inability to locate a legal parking space is not an acceptable excuse for violation of these regulations.
  • Theft of a hangtag, use of a stolen hangtag, the falsification of information to obtain a hangtag, and forging a hangtag are all criminal offenses. Those violating this policy are subject to prosecution and administrative sanctions by Oxford College.
  • Students, faculty, staff, and visitors must park in approved parking zones only as indicated on the Campus Parking Map and designated by signage.
  • Handicap spaces, fire lanes, and loading zones are designated by a sign or pavement marking indicating same. Illegally parked vehicles in these areas may be booted and immobilized at the owner's expense.
     
  • No student parking is allowed at any time around Allen Memorial United Methodist Church on Asbury Street, Pierce Street, or Whatcoat Street. These areas are reserved for church, faculty/staff, academic and student visitors, and special event parking only.
  • No student parking is allowed at any time in the 1-hour parking zone in front of the cafeteria on Pierce Street and Wesley Street..
  • No parking is allowed in the following areas: driveways, pedestrian pathways, between "no parking" signs, crosswalks, sidewalks, grassed areas, fire lanes, service areas, access areas and service loading areas.
  • No driving or parking is allowed at any time, except for emergency vehicles, on the quadrangle (Few Circle), any other bricked areas, or those areas presently closed by bollards.
  • No resident-student parking is allowed on city streets bordering campus for loading or unloading unless the area is marked as loading/unloading areas by signage. Vehicles parked in loading and unloading areas should have their emergency flashers blinking while left unattended.
     
  • All commuter students are required to register their car and park in any student parking identified by signage.
  • Oxford College Campus police officers regularly and routinely patrol parking areas as well as all facilities of the campus to ensure safety and security.  However, Oxford College and Emory University assume no responsibility or liability for damage to your vehicle (or its contents) while parked on or near the campus. Emergency blue light call boxes are available across campus to contact Emory Campus Police for assistance.  Locations of the emergency blue light call boxes are shown on the Oxford College Campus Police home page at;   http://oxford.emory.edu/life-at-oxford/campus-police/
  • Students, faculty, and staff are advised to keep their vehicles locked at all times to prevent theft of hangtags and/or personal property.  Items of value should never be left in plain view inside vehicles.
  • In the event of theft and/or damage to your vehicle or the contents thereof, you should notify Campus Police to initiate a police report and documentation to provide to your insurance carrier as well as other local police jurisdictions to aid in the identification, arrest, prosecution, and conviction of any individual(s) responsible. Police records of any thefts and/or property damages are maintained by the Emory University Police Department - Records Division on the Atlanta Campus at (404)-727-5076. For a copy of an incident report please call this number.
  • Illegal parking on all city streets is enforced by local law enforcement and not the Campus Police.
