• All employees at Wesleyan must register their vehicle with Public Safety. Unregistered vehicles are subject to ticketing, towing, or immobilization via a wheel clamp “boot”
  • All faculty and staff need to register their vehicles via the link on the Public Safety website if they did not do so last year. 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 an “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 zone Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., or they will be ticketed and be held responsible for the citations.
  1. Green Zone will consist of Lots L, C, U, R, D and Q.
  2. Blue Zone will consist of Lots S, B, C, Y and Z (45 Broad) lots.
  3. Purple Zone will consist of lots Y (56 Hamlin), A, H, Z and J.
  4. Orange Zone will consist of lots E, G, T, and N.
  5. Please note that C Lot is now shared between the Blue and Green Zone. Y And Z Lot are now shared between the Blue and Purple Zones.
  • Some buildings will be assigned a specific area as follows below:
    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 in hang tag, park behind building
    6. SP Parking Pass: SP sticker on hang tag

Parking is first come, first served. There are no reserved/guaranteed spaces/lots and some lots/areas reach capacity, due to a limited parking in the core area of the campus. Please plan accordingly, as lots will fill up quickly and many 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 Vine Lot. You may not “reassign” yourself to another zone.


  •  Parking areas are typically assigned by the building 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 look to 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 vehicles found parked in an unauthorized area will be ticketed.
  • 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. Faculty/staff can appeal tickets 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. Appeals by phone or in person will not be accepted.
  • If you have another vehicle to add to your registration, email parking@wesleyan.edu with the vehicles info and we will add it to your permit. We are issuing 1 permit per faculty/staff member than can be transferred between vehicles.
  • Hangtags should be displayed on the rear view mirror, facing outwards. If the hang tag does not fit, please put it on the dashboard on the passenger side of the vehicle where it will be visible from outside the vehicle. We suggest using tape, Velcro or other such items to affix the hang tag to the dashboard so it doesn’t slide off or into the vents. Velcro will be available at 208 High Street at no charge.
