All students will be charged a $70.00 motor vehicle registration fee each semester on their student account. Any student not driving on campus may submit a Motor Vehicle Waiver Form to Finaincial Services by the end of the second week of that semester for removal of the motor vehicle registration fee on his/her initial bill.
Any motor vehicle parked on Thiel College property must properly display a valid parking permit. Thiel College Campus Police Department must be able to identify each vehicle to help assure the safety of campus students, employees, and guests. Please visit the the Thiel College Police Department in order to obtain a vehicle registration and parking tag.
Where can I park?
Once a student has properly completed a motor vehicle registration form and submitted that form to the Thiel Police Department, that student should receive a student parking pass. This pass will give that student access to all student parking that is not marked as reserved or restricted parking. Student parking is marked with white lines and is located outside of the residential areas on campus. Also student overflow parking is located behind Passavant Center on campus.
Guest parking is available in multiple locations on campus. All guests should visit the Thiel College Police Department to obtain a Visitor's Parking Pass. This pass will give you access to our parking lots while you are visiting campus. Many of the visitor parking spaces are located outside of Roth Hall (Admissions, Records, Advancement, & the President's Office) and the Howard Miller Student Center (Student Life, Post Office, Book Store, Dining Hall, & Health Center). Also overflow parking is available for guests behind the Passavant Center on campus.
Faculty & staff Parking is available behind the Thiel Police Department, Greenville Hall, Sawhill Hall, the Gymnasium, Passavant and Harter Hall. However, the lots located behind Harter and Greenville Hall are reserved for faculty and staff members with the most seniority. The faculty and staff parking spaces are marked with yellow lines.
Handicap parking spaces on campus are designated by the white on blue wheelchair sign. These spaces are for individuals with the proper parking permit. These spaces are located outside of many buildings on campus including the Howard Miller Student Center, Academic Center, Roth Hall, Greenville Hall, and the Library.
NOTE: These spaces are not for loading and unloading or for use when all spaces are full. Because handicapped persons both visit and attend the College we will stricly enforce these spaces. Vehicles parked in these areas are subject to towing at the owner's expense.
Where can't I park?
The purpose of Fire Lanes is to keep the area next to campus buildings clear of vehicles in case emergency vehicles like fire apparatus and ambulances need access to deal with emergencies. These are critical areas! Thiel College Police with enforce these areas strictly. All campus roadways are considered fire lanes even if not posted. Vehicles parked in these are subject to towing at the owner's expense.

Unauthorized Parking Spaces
