Parking Regulations and Policies

General Parking Policies
In order for the campus safety and campus parking departments to regulate and manage vehicles on campus, all faculty, staff, and students who want to bring, operate, or park a vehicle, motorcycle, or moped on the St. Norbert College campus must abide by all state and college parking rules and regulations. 
  • All employee and student vehicles need to be registered with the college and display a valid year parking permit.
  • Students must be parked in a lot/area that is valid for their permit type. The students who drive and park on campus without a permit are responsible for any citations the vehicle receives.
  • Vehicles must be parked in properly marked parking stalls.
  • Vehicles cannot be parked by yellow curbs or other areas marked by yellow lines.
  • All vehicles must be parked forward to bumper and in parking stalls as defined by yellow parking boundaries.
  • Vehicles parked within indented loading zone areas on Reid St. must be parked parallel to the curb. No angled or diagonal parking is allowed.
  • All guests of students must park in the P21 Sixth Street lot and provide their vehicle information to Campus Safety to ensure that the vehicle is not ticketed. 
  • Street Parking:
    • The campus portion of Reid St. (east of Third St.) and Marsh St. (east of Third St.) are SNC Parking (SNC Permit Required) and are NO OVERNIGHT PARKING areas from 2 a.m.-6 a.m. Monday-Friday. When weekend parking is CLOSED, there is no overnight parking on Reid & Marsh from 2 a.m.-6 a.m. Saturday & Sunday. Parking overnight will result in a No Overnight Parking ticket from SNC.
    • Be aware, that all other street parking in De Pere is owned, regulated, and enforced by the City of De Pere. De Pere's ordinance restricts street parking "NO OVERNIGHT PARKING" from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday. For more information and exceptions, please visit De Pere Parking Ordinances

Campus No Parking Areas

  • Visitor lots/spaces. These areas are meant for guests who come to visit students, employees, and departments on campus. Employee and Student vehicles (regardless of whether or not the vehicle has a current year permit) are not considered visitors and can not park in any visitor parking lots.
  • Main Hall. The reserved spaces are available to the president, and their guests only.
  • Campus Center. This area has one disabled space. All other spaces are designated for delivery or service vehicles. Unauthorized vehicles parked in this area will be ticketed. If you think you need to be parked in this area temporarily, you must obtain authorization from the campus safety and/or the parking office before parking. For short-term parking to visit the mailroom, students can use the 15-minute loading area in the Marsh St. cul-de-sac.

Disabled Parking
Spaces in several parking lots are reserved for people with physical disabilities (with an appropriate sticker). The vehicle must display a valid year SNC parking permit and the Disabled permit. Signs and symbols mark these spaces. A temporary disabled parking permit may be obtained through Health and Wellness Services or from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. The fine for unauthorized parking in these areas is $50.

Vehicles with properly displayed disabled permits (state or St. Norbert College issued) are allowed to park within lots marked as “No overnight – No parking 2-6 a.m.” However, if it snows during the evening, you are responsible for making sure your vehicle is moved to an “overnight” parking lot before 2 a.m. to allow our facilities department to do snow removal. Vehicles not moved will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Loading/Unloading, Short-Term and Errand Parking
Short-term parking for 15-20 minutes is allowed in the cul de sac on Marsh St. and in the indented loading zones on Reid St. Vehicles must have their hazard lights on and be moved within the 15-20 minute time frame. Any vehicles that are parked for longer than 20 minutes or are parked without their hazard lights on will be ticketed. Vehicles parked in the Reid St. loading zones must be parked parallel to the curb. Angle parking is not allowed.

Lot Closed Times
All lots identified/signed as “No overnight – no parking 2-6 a.m.” are closed from 2-6 a.m. every day of the week.

Lot Open Times
All college lots are open (free from ticketing except for violators of disabled spots, no parking areas, and visitor parking lots) during the following times:

  • 3:30 p.m. - 2 a.m. Monday through Friday*
  • 6 a.m. - 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday*
*Vehicles must be returned to their appropriate lots by 2 a.m. each night. 

Motorcycle and Scooter Parking
Permits are not required for motorcycles, mopeds, and scooters but the bike needs to be registered with the parking office. To register, please email the license plate number, make, and model of the vehicle along with a contact phone number to parking@snc.edu

The vehicle must be parked in the area designated for motorcycles: in the P6 Third Street South lot, just right of the entrance off of Third Street. parking map

  • Motorcycles, mopeds, and scooters cannot be parked in regular car stalls, nor are they allowed to be driven, pushed, or parked anywhere else on campus.  
  • Motorcycles and scooters must be removed from campus during winter (at the end of the fall semester).

Rental Car Policy
The college uses Hertz for local vehicle rentals. Please visit the rental car website for more information.

Snow Removal
During the winter, students must be alert for emails and signs advising them to move their vehicles for snow removal. The snow plowing of student lots will be announced via email by SNC News and flyers posted in academic buildings and residence halls. Vehicles left in a lot that is to be plowed will be towed at the owner’s expense. Towing costs will be placed directly on the student’s account. Vehicles towed to the campus impound lot must be claimed immediately. Unclaimed vehicles will be towed off campus at the owner’s expense.

Vehicles with properly displayed disabled permits (state or St. Norbert College issued) are allowed to park within lots marked as “No overnight – no parking 2-6 a.m.” However, if it snows during the evening, you are responsible for making sure your vehicle is moved to an “overnight” parking lot before 2 a.m. to allow our facilities department to do snow removal. Vehicles not moved will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Towing and Booting
Vehicles will be towed for the following reasons:

  • Vehicles parking in the Preferred Permit Parking area without a preferred parking permit will be issued a $75 citation and towed at the owner's expense. 
  • Snow removal purposes from no overnight parking lots. Students cannot park in any lot signed as a no overnight parking lot after 2 a.m. (no weekend exception).
  • Not moving per a parking bulletin email notification. Students are responsible for monitoring the SNC News announcements and their SNC email accounts for parking bulletins.
  • Repeated violations of parking policy. Unregistered vehicles that have been repeatedly ticketed on campus will be booted (immobilized) per a $50 charge or towed to an off-campus site until the owner can be identified and all fines have been paid.

Towing fines (typically $100-$125) cannot be appealed as an outside company provides the towing service to the college.

Vacation and Break Parking
Signs will be posted and a notice will be published in the SNC News before vacations, alerting students and employees as to what lots may be used during the vacation periods. It is the individual’s responsibility to watch for notices, monitor the SNC News publications, and park properly. This is especially important if the vehicle will be stored on campus during the vacation/break period.

Wheeled Vehicles
All “wheeled” vehicles* (except those that assist disabled persons to navigate through campus and/or St. Norbert College security/service vehicles) are not allowed on campus sidewalks.

*Includes scooters (motorized and non-motorized), bikes (please review the bike policy and the storage requirements), in-line skates and rollerblades, skateboards, and the like.

All mopeds/scooters must be removed from campus parking lots by winter break. The vehicles cannot be stored on campus during the winter months.
