Student Parking Guidelines
You must have a decal in order to park anywhere on the campus of Westminster College
. Parking in grass areas is prohibited.
Westminster College is a pedestrian campus.
Students are expected to use their assigned areas for long-term parking and walk to classes, meals, and events.
No one is permitted to park in areas for which they do not have the appropriate decal.
Parking regulations apply and will be enforced, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Student vehicles with parking decals will be permitted in non-reserved spaces in the following parking lots - Beeghly, Shaw, Minteer, Admissions, and Hoyt & Visitor Football lots--daily between the hours of 5:00 pm until 1:00 am and weekends from 5:00 pm Friday until 1:00 am Monday.
