MU Parking & Transportation Services' enforcement hours have changed.

Parking structures, lots and meters that used to be enforced 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday are now enforced 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Several parking structures, lots and meters are enforced at all times. Please pay attention to the signs posted at the entrances. We will continue evening and weekend enforcement of Residential Life parking lots and 24-hour reserved parking lots and spaces.


Enforcement of Parking Regulations

Enforcement of parking regulations is done primarily by MU Parking & Transportation Services with University Police and Hospital Security enforcing on a limited basis. Parking violation notices may be issued to any vehicle parked illegally on University property. Vehicles may be towed on the first violation.

Parking is enforced 24 hours a day, including accessible spaces, yellow curbs, fire lanes, loading zones and reserved spaces. Parking regulations are enforced at all times, including periods when classes are not in session.
Signs are posted at lot entrances stating restrictions. Visitor parking is available at meters, or parking permissions may be purchased at Parking & Transportation Services. Any vehicle in violation may be ticketed and/or towed.

Bicycles must be registered with the University Police Department.   

Information about parking regulations is available in the MU M-Book and the Traffic and Parking Regulations. The University of Missouri assumes no responsibility for articles left in vehicles, or for loss by theft of any vehicle, or any part thereof, or for damage that may be caused to any vehicle or part thereof, by fire, by trespassers, or by any patrons of MU.

Excessive Violation Fees

In order to reduce excessive violators and the need for towing, the university will assess an excessive-violation fee to any vehicle identified that has received five* prior paid or unpaid violations within an academic semester.

After the fifth* violation, an excessive fee of $15* will be added per violation.

At the eleventh* violation, the excessive fee increases to $50* per violation.



*As of August 1st, 2017 the Excessive Violation fee schedule will change.


Beginning August 1, 2017 any vehicle identified as one which has received three prior citations paid or unpaid in an academic semester will be assessed an excessive violation fee of $25 per citation. After the seventh issued citation, the fee will increase to $75 per citation.
