Parking on Campus

All vehicles are required to obtain and properly display a parking decal for the current academic year in order to park on the Shepherd University campus.

*Parking in front of Ikenberry Hall is for Admissions patrons only and requires an Admissions issued pass in order to park.

Student Parking

Parking areas on the Shepherd University campus are identified by letter and color coded signage. Parking permits must be purchased from the University Police Department, Moler Hall. Permits are $70 ($35 after January 1st) and last for the entire school year. Valid driver’s license, current vehicle registration, completed application, and payment are to be brought to the Police Department for permit purchase (or via mail prior to August 15)*. Residential students (students who live on campus in a residence hall) will receive a blue decal. Commuter students (students who do not live on campus) will receive a red decal. Decals are to be affixed from the inside to the lower left hand corner (driver’s side) of the front windshield. IF a state inspection sticker is present in that area, decal is to be affixed beside (to the left or right) of the inspection sticker. Make sure that decal is out of the driver’s line of sight, does not obstruct the view of any and all roads, or create a blind spot due to placement.   Motorcycle decals are to be affixed to the front windshield or front fork facing out.
