Any person operating a motor vehicle on campus is subject to and must comply with
all traffic regulations of the State of Illinois, the City of Chicago and Chicago
State University. The regulations and general information are printed for the benefit
and compliance of everyone and will aid all members of the university community. Nothing
herein is intended to change or replace existing State statutes. The authority to
proscribe and enforce motor vehicle registrations is based upon Illinois statutes
and subsequent actions taken by the Chicago State University Board of Trustees. The
statute with reference to powers of the Board of Trustees appears in Chapter 110,
Illinois Compiled Statutes 610/1.
No liability is created either by granting parking or by granting operating privileges
on property owned, leased or otherwise controlled by Chicago State University. The
university assumes no responsibility for the care and/or protection of vehicles or
their contents while operated or parked on university property. The University Police,
however, do make regular tours of the parking lots.
Individuals who use the parking facilities must have a valid parking decal or pay
the daily $5.00 parking fee at either the 95th Street (95th St. & St. Lawrence) or
99th Street Parking Booth (99th St. and King Drive). Rules and regulations are enforced
around the clock. Vehicles must be operated and parked in a manner that assures the
safety of other vehicles and pedestrians. Parking is permitted in marked stalls only.
The entire vehicle must be within the boundary lines of the parking space. Responsibility
for finding a legal parking space rests with the vehicle operator. Snow or other severe
weather conditions are not valid reasons to disobey the regulations. Parking privileges
may be revoked for failure to comply. If a vehicle is disabled, the owner / driver
is responsible for its removal as soon as available services permit. Parking spaces
may not be used to store a vehicle. If a vehicle is left unattended for more than
24 hours, the owner / driver should contact the Parking Department.
