All motor vehicles operated or parked on the campus by University faculty, staff, or students are to be registered with the UConn Police Department and each vehicle must display a University of Connecticut parking decal on the lower right passenger side front windshield. Motorcycles and motor scooters must display their decals on the rear fender in a conspicuous space. All other vehicles being operated on the campus with regularity (e.g. those of contractors, vendors and sales/service representatives) are also required to be registered with the UConn Police Department and appropriate parking decals will be issued. Student Registration (parking) decals are valid from September 1 through August 31, unless revoked for cause. Registration decals are issued for specific vehicles and registrants. They are not transferable. No student may register a vehicle under a name that belongs to another student on the campus. The University cannot be responsible for the loss or theft of a registrant’s decal after issuance. Such loss or theft should be reported promptly to the UConn Police Department (860.570.5173) as the registrant may otherwise bear responsibility for parking violations associated with that decal. Fraudulent registration, misrepresentation of the type of University affiliation, or the display of stolen, misbegotten, altered, or counterfeit decal constitute grounds for disciplinary action. Such cases will be referred to the appropriate University authority and vehicle registration may be revoked or denied.
Registration of University faculty and staff members is arranged by the UConn Police Department. New members of the faculty and staff are asked to register their vehicles upon arrival on campus. Applications for registration can be obtained from the UConn Police Department, on the third floor of the Law Library Building. Registration of eligible returning students will normally be arranged by mail by the Business Office during regular summer mailings. The decals will be available for pick by the students from the UConn Police Department. All other student vehicles are to be registered with the UConn Police Department upon arrival on campus. An annual registration fee of $40.00 is charged to each student registering a vehicle on campus. A $5.00 charge is assessed for each additional vehicle.
Motorcycles; with certain restrictions, may be registered as (alternate) vehicles and appropriate registration decals will be issued. In the case of students, if the motorcycle is the principal vehicle, the established registration fee will be required. If the motorcycle is an alternate vehicle, no additional fee will be required. Motorcycle and motor scooter decals allow the owner of the registered vehicle to park in designated parking spaces. No motorcycles or motor scooters are to be chained to buildings or other University property.
Any student who has paid the $40 parking registration fee and subsequently withdraws or completes graduation requirements prior to the start of the spring semester is eligible for a $15 refund. Application for such refund must be made to the Business Office no later than February 1 of the spring semester. In all such cases, the original decal, or sufficient remnants to indicate total destruction, must be returned to the Business Office with the request for a refund.
