2021 - 2022 Student Handbook

Parking Rules and Regulations

Parking at Lasell University is managed by Campus Police. The Office is located on the lower level of Winslow Hall, 80 Maple Street; the telephone number is 617-243-2279 (or extension 2279 in the University system).

Parking at Lasell University is a privilege, not a right. Students found in violation of any University policy, rule or regulation may have their parking privileges revoked by the Chief of Police, and this action can be in addition to any other Conduct sanctions that may be issued to a student. Any student who receives three or more tickets for parking violations in an academic semester may have their parking permit revoked, and may not be eligible for a parking permit for a period of one year. Resident Parking permits not picked up within 3 business days of the start of the semester will be forfeited and parking fee will be refunded.

  1. Vehicles are only permitted to operate on proper streets, roadways, and parking lots. Driving and parking is prohibited on fields, grass, and walking paths. Drivers must obey all traffic laws, and operate their vehicles in a safe manner at all times while on Lasell University property. Operating vehicles in an unsafe manner may result in the revocation of parking privileges and/or possible criminal complaints.
  2. Mopeds and mini-bikes are not permitted on or in Lasell University property at any time.
