Parking and Traffic Regulations

The College is not responsible for theft or damage to parked vehicles on College property, however, if you’re vehicle is damaged or items are stolen from your vehicle, contact The Public Safety Office immediately so incident report can be filed and an investigation can be performed

Vehicle Registration

It is the responsibility of the decal holder to know these regulations. Lack of knowledge of these registration and parking regulations will not be justification for appealing parking citations.

All students and employees who bring motor vehicles to the college area, whether to the campus itself or not, must register their cars, motorcycles, motor scooters or motor bikes with the Office of Public Safety.  The online parking registration form can be accessed by following the link on the home page of the Public Safety’s website.  Upon approval of the registration form, a display sticker is issued and should be placed on the left side of the rear bumper. Failure to register a vehicle by a student results in a fine.

Unregistered vehicles may be ticketed. Our neighbors and the Huntingdon Police Department have asked for our cooperation in regulating street parking near the campus. If a vehicle is damaged or vandalized, or if a vehicle is parked in a manner that obstructs traffic (such as a truck trying to make a tight turn), it is helpful to know if that vehicle belongs to a Juniata College student.

Students must register their vehicles by the close of business day, of drop/add.

Unauthorized/unlicensed motor vehicles (mopeds, motorized scooters, dirt bikes, ATVs etc.) are not permitted to operate on college property, including college-owned streets, walkways and hiking trails. This restriction does not apply to authorized mobility assistance for individuals with special needs nor to college-owned golf carts and utility vehicles assisting with college operations.

Upon approval of the motorized vehicle registration form, a display decal is issued and should be placed on the left side of the rear bumper.

Vehicle registration must be completed on line prior to receipt of a display decal. Completing the vehicle registration online indicates that the vehicle owner/operator will follow all rules and regulations outlined in this information. No one is permitted to loan, re-sell, tamper with or otherwise permit the use of the decal on other then the registered vehicle. Registration decals are issued to a specific vehicle, and may not be transferred to any other vehicle. It is the responsibility of the decal holder to replace any missing or stolen decal.

A current vehicle registration decal properly displayed (left side, rear bumper) entitles students, faculty and staff to park in designated parking areas only. Parking in unauthorized areas subjects the violator to a $10.00 fine.

Individuals to whom registration decals are issued are responsible for all parking/traffic violations associated with their vehicle, regardless of who is driving the vehicle.

Fees

The vehicle registration fee is:
Resident Students: $35.00
Nonresident Students: $25.00

The registration decal is valid for the entire academic year.

A no-fee decal that has the following stipulations attached is also available.
No parking on campus from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Monday- Saturday
Students may park on campus from 7:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m. Monday –Saturday, all day Sunday and during breaks, only in student parking.

Parking spaces cannot be guaranteed to decal holders based on the limited amount of parking spaces available. The purchase of a decal entitles an individual to park on College property if there is a legal parking space available.

Faculty and staff are not charged for vehicle registration.

Parking on campus is considered a privilege.

Temporary Vehicle Registrations

Temporary vehicle registrations are available to individuals for 2 weeks each semester. They are not intended to replace the proper registration or placing a decal on the vehicle. Temporary vehicle registrations are free.
