The operation or parking of any motor vehicle on the property of IIT is a privilege granted by the university. In order to maintain a safe and clear means for the movement and parking of vehicles, IIT has adopted and enforces the regulations contained herein. Each owner/operator is responsible for being familiar with these regulations and will be held responsible for violations thereof. The Parking Services Office and Public Safety are charged with the responsibility of enforcing parking regulations at IIT. These two departments accomplish this by issuing parking violations to vehicles in violation of the published IIT parking regulations. The issued parking violation requires the payment of a specific fine or the appeal of the violation within 7 days of the issue date.

IIT has designated surface lots. Use of lots and designated parking spaces require the display of a valid IIT parking permit. Some lots have restrictions imposed, either by electronic means or through the use of signage.

The purchase of an IIT parking permit does not guarantee the availability of a specific parking space. All parking is on a first-come first-served basis. The responsibility for locating a legal parking space rests solely on the vehicle operator. Lack of available parking in individual parking lots is not a valid excuse for parking illegally.

All traffic and parking regulations will be enforced at ALL times, including evenings, weekends, holidays and when classes are not in session, unless otherwise noted.

Each person who registers and or operates a motor vehicle or motorcycle on IIT property must have a valid driver's license and current vehicle registration.

The regulations contained herein are subject to revision, addition and/or amendment. Such revisions will be posted and/or published for the information of the IIT community.

The university reserves the right to remove or have removed any vehicle or motorcycle that is parked in such a way as to constitute a serious hazard or that impedes vehicular or pedestrian traffic movement, the operation of emergency equipment and/or making of essential repairs. Owners of such vehicles will be required to pay all costs involved in removing, impounding, and storing such vehicles. Any vehicle parked on IIT property without a valid university issued permit can be subject to removal at the owner or operator's expense.
