Campus Police Parking

Student Parking Registration

Students wishing to maintain a vehicle on campus for the academic year must register their vehicles at the Wellesley College Police Department within the first week of the semester. Vehicle registration is located at Campus Police. It is extremely important to register your vehicle in a timely manner to avoid parking citations.

Remember, parking at Wellesley College is a privilege afforded to sophomores, juniors and seniors. All students who bring a vehicle to campus beyond the 1st week of the registration period are required to register it with the Wellesley College Police Department immediately upon bringing it here. Again, registration of your motor vehicles may be completed below by filling out the form. There is a fee associated with parking (See below). Students must charge their parking registration fee to their term bill.

Parking Fees:

Resident Student full year decal:$135.00

Resident Student 1/2 year decal:$75.00

 

Parking decals will be issued mailed to your on Campus Mailbox. If you are commuting we will keep the parking decal at Campus Police for pick up.

Employee Parking & Registration

Employees are typically assigned to general staff parking in the Davis Parking Facility and Gray Lot. Senior employees and those who work in buildings east of Tupelo Lane are assigned to restricted parking areas, such as Founders Lot. Movement from general staff parking areas to restricted parking areas is based primarily on years of service and disability needs. As vacancies in restricted areas become available, eligible employees will be contacted about the vacancy and afforded the opportunity to move from the general parking areas to the restricted parking areas.

 

Employees must park in their designated parking areas at all times.

 

Disabilities

Employees with temporary or permanent medical disabilities must request special parking permits directly through Jim Wice, the Director of Accessibility and Disability Resources. Medical documentation of an illness or injury may be requested.

Appealing a Ticket

Parking Citations may be appealed within the 14 day period from when the citation was written.

To appeal a parking ticket:

Please email parking@wellesley.edu and provide the citation number in the subject field. Please provide your name, address, phone and your reason for appeal in the body of the email.

If you do not have internet access, appeals can also be made by filling out the form in person at the Wellesley College Police Department. Ticket appeals will not be considered on citations older than 14 days.

Visitors who receive traffic violations while on campus may return such notices to the Campus Police office prior to leaving campus or mail such violation within the 14 day appeal period as stipulated on the reverse of the violation. Subsequent violations by visitors will not be waived and will be subject to billing of all fines imposed. Students and employees are responsible for the fines incurred by their guests. Due to the volume of citation appeals, delays may occur. Do not send in duplicate appeals, as they may slow down the process. Visitors who fail to turn in the yellow copy of their first citation will have the bill sent to their home address.

 

Billing for Violations

Parking citations are billed through the Cashier's Office at Green Hall and placed on the student's tuition bill.  Employees will be billed directly from the Cashier's Office and outstanding fines may be deducted from payroll.

Payment may be received at the Cashier's Office during their normal business hours.
