Since parking on campus is limited, prioritization of parking requests is necessary. For students, priority is determined by whether you live on or off campus and your total credit hours. For employees, priority is determined by the length of time you have been employed by the UM System. Some lots are restricted to only students who live in designated residence halls.
Students who live in residential halls are given priority for selected parking lots.
The residential areas and lots include:
If you request a student permit for a residential lot and you do not live in the associated hall, your request will be given lower priority than residents. However, you may request permits for up to 6 lots to increase your chances to secure a parking space.
Park in designated, lettered area any time.
Park in any designated motorcycle space.
For designated areas at Rock Mechanics, wind tunnel, and multi-purpose building (3 hours).
Parking permit and meter regulations are enforced Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. while the university is in session.
Details on types of parking violations and fines can be found in the complete rules (see Rules and Regulations), sections .1001 through .1009. Most parking violations fall into the following categories; however, this is not an exhaustive list and fines increase after repeat violations.
After multiple offenses additional fines will be charged.
On the seventh parking violation, and every third violation after that, a vehicle may be towed at the owner's expense.
A Missouri S&T disabled parking permit will allow the permit holder to park in any disabled space on campus except in the visitor lot. If all of the disabled spaces are full in the area you wish to park, you may also park in a regular permit parking space, excluding metered parking. Disabled permits are valid from September 1 to August 31 each year. Please contact Parking Lot Operations at 573-341-4303, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please note that the condensed rules, while representative of the complete rules, do not cover all scenarios and should be considered general guidelines for parking at Missouri S&T. Parking rules are enforced according to the complete rule set, which is viewable via a button below the condensed rules.
Parking rules are discussed and adopted by the members of the Parking, Security and Traffic Committee and approved by the chancellor. This committee is formed of faculty, staff, and students. Minutes from each meeting are available to read.
