LaGrange College recognizes the importance for an institution of higher learning to develop and maintain a safe and secure environment in which the academic and social pursuits of its members can be fully realized.

The parking and traffic plan and the comprehensive campus safety plan are administered by the Vice President and Dean of Students, along with the Director of Security. Parking decals are distributed in the Business office. A set of parking regulations and a decal are issued to each student who has registered their vehicle. The permits are valid for one academic year.

LaGrange College uses zone parking. Every student, resident and commuter will be required to park only in designated lots. Color-coded decals will indicate which lots students and faculty are permitted

to park in. Individuals who park in undesignated lots will be subject to ticketing and fining and will likely be towed.

 

PARKING ZONES:
Only designated vehicles may park in the President’s space, handicap or visitor spaces.

 

STUDENTS: Students are NOT ALLOWED to park in the President’s space, handicap, visitor spaces or faculty/staff spaces, including all spaces on the Hill and the corner lot at broad Street and Park Avenue. All other legal parking spaces on campus are acceptable.

 

FACULTY AND STAFF: Any legal parking space, including spaces on and off the Hill EXCEPT for spaces directly behind Pitts Dining Hall. [Red]
