Policy: Parking Fees and Enforcement (5.11.2)

See PDF copy of this policy.

Part 1. Parking Fees:

All students, faculty, staff, and lessees pay a parking/access/security fee. The President of Rochester Community and Technical College (RCTC) approves the fee after consultation with students and staff. For the current fee schedule, contact the Business Office.

Faculty and staff pay a parking fee based on their status as employees. Students pay a parking fee based on the number of credits they enroll in. Employees who are also students at one of RCTC’s partner institutions will combine their employee and student       rates, but at no time pay more than the full-time parking fee.

Part 2. Parking Lots:

Parking is only allowed in areas designated as parking lots.

A portion of certain parking lots have been designated and designed for      faculty and staff parking only. Faculty and staff wishing to park in these lots must display the parking sticker issued to them when they paid for parking.
