A policy outlining Dartmouth College's parking regulations.
Individuals are encouraged to carpool, vanpool, or use other alternative means of transportation. Reserved parking spaces for carpools and vanpools can be designated by contacting Parking & Transportation Services (ext. 6-2340).
Registering for peripheral parking lots is free. Individuals who park here may ride the shuttle bus, which runs Monday through Friday. A schedule is available from Parking & Transportation Services, bus drivers, or the town offices.
All faculty and employees wishing to use Dartmouth parking facilities must register their vehicles with the Parking & Transportation Services Office. There is a fee involved, which can be payroll deducted for regular/full-time employees. Second and third shift employees must register (no charge).
All students bringing motor vehicles to Hanover must register these with the Parking & Transportation Services Office located at McKenzie Hall. There is a $50.00 fine for any student failing to register for campus lots or for off-campus parking (Note: A-lot registration must be renewed each term). There is a fee for parking in college lots; there is no charge to register for off-campus parking (i.e. fraternities, sororities, private homes).
Registration permits must be affixed to the front driver's side and right rear bumpers of the vehicle. DO NOT place over expired decal. (Parking & Transportation Services regular office hours: Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.)
Official posted signs determine the use of all parking areas. Areas not marked are "no parking" areas.
The following are $50.00 fines: Mass Row, Mass Lot, Butterfield (including adjacent spaces on Old Tuck Drive), Tuck Mall, Tuck Circle, Clement, Lodge, Gym, Topliff, New Hampshire, Dartmouth Row, Richardson, Fayerweather Hill, and the Observatory Lots.
Students who have accumulated two citations during the registration year July 1-June 30, will be fined $100 for each subsequent violation in core areas and $50 for all other areas.
Towing and Immobilization will be done at the owner's expense. The college reserves the right to revoke any individual's campus parking privileges. The parking permit, which consists of two decals, remain the property of the College and is to be entirely removed and returned to the Parking & Transportation Services Office upon revocation. The permit holder expressly gives the College permission to remove or destroy such decals found on vehicles parked on campus after the individual's privileges have been revoked. Misappropriation of decals will result in a $75.00 fine. Student vehicles may be impounded for abuse of these regulations at the discretion of the Office of Business Affairs.
Fines may be paid in person or mailed to the Parking & Transportation Services Office at McKenzie Hall. (Hinman Box 6111)
Personal vehicles may not be left overnight in Campus lots between November 1st and April 1st, including weekends.
Dartmouth College assumes no liability for damage to vehicles while parked in lots. For example, thaws during the winter season can cause ice to fall from College building roofs. Please consider this hazard when parking.
THESE REGULATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO AMENDMENTS AS THE NEED ARISES. ALL PERSONS USING MOTOR VEHICLES ON THE DARTMOUTH COLLEGE CAMPUS IN AREAS EITHER POSTED OR NOT POSTED, ARE SUBJECT TO ALL TRAFFIC REGULATIONS AS DESCRIBED IN THE NEW HAMPSHIRE MOTOR VEHICLE LAW.
