Carroll University maintains parking facilities throughout the campus for use by members of the university community and guests. University parking facilities are available only for those using Carroll University facilities or have received permission from the Public Safety Center.
The parking areas next to residence halls are restricted to resident parking 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Resident permits are required to park in these lots and in other designated resident lots.
General Parking Regulations
Residential students may park only in the lot designated by their permit. Commuting students must park only in lots designated for commuter students. Parking in an unauthorized area or in a lot for which the car is not permitted could result in a ticket and/or the towing of the vehicle. Any ticket or towing charges will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner/operator. All questions regarding on-campus parking may be directed to the Public Safety Center, 208 Wright St., 262.524.7300.
Carroll reserves the right to revoke the parking permit and/or refuse to issue any future parking permits to individuals who exhibit a history of repeated offenses, endanger others or damage university property by the careless use of a motor vehicle. Carroll also reserves the right to refuse the issuance of a parking permit to any individual.

- Certain lots or spaces might be reserved on a temporary basis for special visitors or special events. Do not park in these areas or you will be ticketed, regardless of permit.

- The university assumes no responsibility for the care and protection of any vehicle or its contents at any time while it is operated or parked on land and property of the university. All vehicles should be locked when left unattended.
- The university is authorized to provide for the removal of a motor vehicle under certain circumstances, including but not limited to:

- If a motor vehicle is parked in an area where "No Parking" signs are situated, in an area which is otherwise reasonably designated to prohibit parking or in an area where parking is not reasonably intended (i.e. sidewalks, lawns, etc.).
- If an excessive amount of parking violation notifications have been issued on a motor vehicle or owner/operator.
- If a vehicle is determined to be abandoned.
- If a vehicle or person receives in excess of five valid parking violations from the university. Upon the removal and/or impounding of a motor vehicle, under the above conditions, a towing charge and additional storage and/or impound fee will be assessed by the removing agency/or the university in addition to any other violation penalty that might be assessed by the university and/or the city of Waukesha.
