Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

  1. How do I apply for a parking permit?
    Students can apply for a parking permit by registering online using a student Wingspan account or by registering at Campus Police, Good Building, 526 Myrtle Drive. Faculty and staff may also apply online at our parking permits login page.
  2. Where do I place the permit on my car?
    The permit is placed on outside of the lower part of the back glass on the driver’s side of the vehicle.
  3. What is the cost of a parking permit?
    The cost for a parking permit for various designations can be found by logging on to the online parking permit request page. When a vehicle is registered with Campus Police, the cost of the parking permit is automatically charged to your faculty, staff, or student university account.
  4. Can I appeal a parking citation and where do I pay the citation?
    Yes. Appeals are made by paying the citation at the Cashiers Office located at 21 Tillman Hall and completing an appeals form and submitting the form to Campus Police. A time will be scheduled for you to appear before the parking committee.
  5. Can I get parking privileges reinstated?
    Yes. Parking privileges will be reinstated upon completion of the “Second Chance” parking program.
  6. Do visitors need parking permits?
    Yes. Everyone parking on campus needs to have a permit. Visitor permits are free and can be obtained at Campus Police. The Visitors can park in certain spaces on campus. Please refer to the parking map for the designated visitor spaces.
  7. What do the different colored lines on the pavement mean?
    These lines represent the different parking areas. Garnet represents Faculty/Staff (F/S), green represents visitors, white represents students, blue represents disabled, and yellow represents "no parking".
  8. Can vehicles park in fire lanes, and no parking areas if they turn on their flashers or are off-loading?
    No. Fire lanes are used for emergency vehicles in case of an emergency. Winthrop University facilities vehicles may use such areas on official business.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
