Parking Regulations and Enforcement
The operation of a motor vehicle on either campus is a privilege which may be withdrawn by the University for failure to comply with regulations enforced by the Department of Public Safety. These regulations apply at all times to members of the University community including students, faculty, staff, administrators, visitors and guests.
Parking is prohibited in fire zones and on campus roadways except as otherwise designated. The Department of Public Safety may limit or alter on-campus parking and traffic flow in the event of an incident, emergency or campus event.
Please note that Rider University assumes no responsibility for the care of, protection of, or damage to any motor vehicle or its contents at any time it is operated on, parked on, or removed from University property.
Traffic Ticket Appeals
If you believe that a ticket may have been inappropriately issued, you may seek to have it reviewed administratively. This review is initiated by completing a Traffic Ticket Appeal Form which must be submitted via email within 15 days of the issuing of the citation. All reviews are conducted by a Traffic Ticket Review Board comprising representatives of the student body and staff. The decision of the Board is final and is communicated via regular mail to the person making the appeal.
