Can students park in Faculty/Staff spaces?
Some parking spaces allow student parking after a designated time and some spaces prohibit student parking 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Students may park only in Faculty/Staff spaces where signs with designated times are posted.
Parking rules and regulations
will guide you on which lots and spaces will allow student parking.
Why is backing into certain parking spaces prohibited?
Due to safety issues created by backing into certain types of parking spaces, Winthrop has found it necessary to prohibit back-in parking in angled, bumpered or curbed spaces on campus, as indicated by lot signage. Compliance helps avoid endangering pedestrians or other vehicles and impeding traffic flow while back-in maneuvers are made, as well as minimizing the risk of wrong-way driving on one-way routes upon departure.
