• All employees at Wesleyan must register their vehicle with Public Safety. One hang tag will be issued to each registered employee.  Unregistered vehicles are subject to ticketing, towing, or immobilization.
  • All previous registrations are now null and void. All faculty and staff need to re-register their vehicles via the link on the Public Safety website. Multiple vehicles can be registered to one permit and the employee can move the hang tag between different vehicles.
  • There is no charge this year for registering vehicles for faculty/staff.
  • Visitors and guests of faculty/staff can also register their vehicles via the same link at no charge.
  • Faculty/staff will typically be assigned a zone in which to park their vehicle. If there are no open parking spaces in their assigned zone, employees can utilize street parking or park in V Lot on Vine Street. Faculty/staff must park in their assigned a zone Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  A map showing parking zone locations is at the end of this document.


    1. Green zone will consist of Lots L, I (247/255 Pine), U, R, D and Q.
    2. Blue zone will consist of Lots S, B, C and Z (45 Broad) lots.
    3. Purple zone will consist of lots Y (56 Hamlin), A, H and J.

  • Some users will be assigned a specific location as follows:
    1. Cady School (P Lot): P sticker on Hang Tag
    2. WesPress: WP sticker on hang tag, park in Driveway
    3. 51 Lawn: F sticker on hang tag, park in F Lot
    4. Observatory: O sticker on hang tag, park in O Lot
    5. Writing Center: WC sticker on hang tag, park behind building.

  • Parking is first come, first served. There are no reserved/guaranteed spaces. Please plan accordingly, as lots will fill up quickly and some people will have to park farther away from their building than they might have expected. If there are no parking spaces in your assigned zone, you may park on the street or in the Vine Street Lot. You may not “reassign” yourself to another area.  Call Public Safety 860-685-2345 if you need assistance.


  • Parking areas are typically assigned according to where the faculty/staff member works. If you teach or work in multiple buildings, please note that when you register your vehicle and send the information, as well, in an e-mail to parking@wesleyan.edu, so we can accommodate your parking needs.


  • Anyone with a handicap placard or any special parking needs, please e-mail parking@wesleyan.edu so we can work with your situation and provide the access that you need.
  • Faculty/staff are expected to park in their assigned area all year, including winter/summer breaks and holidays. 
  • Faculty/Staff who need to leave their vehicle overnight on campus need permission from Public Safety to do so and may be re assigned to another lot if needed.
  • Most faculty/staff lots are open to visitors between 5 p.m. and 1 a.m. on weekdays and from 5 p.m. Friday to 1 a.m. Monday morning unless otherwise noted.
  • Faculty/staff are prohibited from parking on the grass, turf, sidewalks, or along curbing/islands in parking lots. Faculty/staff should be parking within a lined parking space to ensure that they are not obstructing the flow of traffic. Failure to do so may result in a ticket.
  • If there are any changes to you work location, or to your vehicle information, please update us by e-mailing parking@wesleyan.edu, with “Registration Update” as the subject.
  • Faculty/staff will be responsible for paying tickets that they receive. You may appeal a ticket by e-mailing Parking@wesleyan.edu with their ticket number in the subject line and their WesID and permit info in the body of the e-mail, along with the reason why their ticket should be waived. Appeals may also be submitted online via the Portfolio/Portal. Only written appeals are accepted by Public Safety.
