Parking Rules & Regulations

The Rensselaer Handbook of Student Rights and Responsibilities states that all motor vehicles (including motorcycles and mopeds) must be registered. Parking at Rensselaer is limited and student vehicles are restricted by permit to specific areas on campus.

The parking regulations are modified annually by the Parking Review Board (consisting of faculty, staff, and student members) to meet changing needs. Student ticket appeals are decided by the Student Motor Vehicle Court.

Freshmen living in a residence hall are prohibited from bringing a motor vehicle to the Rensselaer campus. Vehicles parked on or contingent to the campus must comply with campus and municipal parking regulations or may be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

Parking permits and copies of the driving and parking regulations are available at the Parking Office at the Visitors Information Center next to the footbridge, or online at RPI Parking and Transportation.
