Campus Police & Parking
The College expects strict compliance with the state, city, county, and campus traffic rules and regulations from all students, faculty, staff and visitors. The registered owner of a vehicle is responsible for parking fines even if they are not driving the vehicle. All tickets issued to any vehicle displaying a decal purchased by a student or employee will be the responsibility of the decal holder. Visitor spaces are for visitors' vehicles only - not for students, faculty or staff.
These traffic rules and regulations are issued under authority of Colorado Revised Statutes 23-5-107.
Parking lots are designated as “Commuter” or “Residential.” These designations are shown on the campus map, and there are corresponding signs in the parking lots. The fine will be $30 for parking in an unauthorized area.
The College is not responsible for lost or stolen parking permit decals; however, a prompt report to Fort Lewis College Police may result in the recovery and return of property. Parking permits are required on vehicles Monday morning at 8:00 am, one week (7 days) after the first day of class for the fall and winter semesters.
$40.00 per year. $20.00 per Fall or Winter trimester. Motorcycles must park in designated motorcycle parking areas.
$120.00 per year. $60.00 per Fall or Winter trimester. Automobiles must park in designated parking lots and parking spaces only, in areas specifically marked for permit automobile parking.
In keeping with the development of its Sustainability Action Plan, Fort Lewis College is implementing comprehensive strategies that address the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions including those related to transportation.
Use of Parking Fees
The construction of parking lots, roads, lighting, striping, signs and maintenance is done through the sale of parking permits and the collection of parking fines. No state funds are provided; this is a vehicle user-fee method.
