Parking and personal safety tips from Public Safety

Parking Enforcement & Motorist Assistance

Murray State University’s parking regulations are intended to educate people about parking on the MSU campus. Parking Enforcement officers not only write tickets, they help people find their way around campus. Enforcement of regulations is to promote your safety. The temporary convenience of illegal parking is rarely worth the hassle and expense of a ticket or towing. The Parking Office recommends that students, faculty, staff, and visitors observe these regulations as a courtesy to everyone. Please remember that parking regulations are in effect year around, including semester breaks. The enforcement regulations apply to all persons operating motor vehicles on Murray State University campus. It is your responsibility to read and fully understand these regulations. Not knowing the regulations is not considered a valid reason for appeal.

Murray State University reserves the right to change any parking regulation. Normally, changes in the regulations will be announced through proper university communications channels. Any questions regarding parking regulations should be addressed to the Parking Office on campus.
