The rules and regulations are listed in their entirety here, but here are a few rules of thumb:
- ALWAYS display your hangtag - If you forget your hangtag for a day, call parking enforcement at (312) 355-0555 and let them know to avoid a ticket on your car. If you lose your hangtag, come to the Parking Office on your side of campus to get a new one.
- NEVER let anyone use your i-Card to enter a parking lot
- Do NOT straddle the lines of the parking stall - Be considerate of your fellow parkers.
- Do NOT back into stalls
- Read and obey all posted signs
