Failure to adhere to these WSU–Lake Campus Parking Rules and Regulations may result in a Parking Ticket for the violation.

Resident Parking

Due to limited parking space, the resident Parking Lot is restricted to resident students only. Resident Students must visibly display a Resident Parking Permit in their vehicle in order to park there. Resident Parking Permits are issued by the Community Director and must be returned once the student moves out of campus housing. There is a $10 replacement fee for lost, stolen, or broken permits.

Parking Tickets

The procedure for handling Student Parking Tickets will be as follows:

  1. Once a student has received a ticket, the fee will be added to his or her student account. At that point the student may either pay the assessed fee or dispute the ticket.
  2. Tickets may be paid at the Enrollment Services Office located in Dwyer Hall. If the student wishes to dispute the ticket, he or she must contact the Lake Campus Police via phone (X8449, 419-586-0249) or email (tyler.pottkotter@wright.edu).
  3. If a student disputes his or her ticket but the explanation is found not sufficient, the student can then appeal the ticket by filling out and submitting the Parking and Transportation Violation Appeal Form.
  4. Appeals will be reviewed by the Appeals Committee, which will consist of the Student Services Director, Student Conduct Officer, and a designated Lake Campus student representative.
  5. If parking problems continue, the issue will be forwarded to Student Conduct as a violation of WSU Student policy.

If you have any questions, please contact either Student Services Director, Sandi Holdheide (sandi.holdheide@wright.edu or X8359, 419-586-0300) or Campus Police Officer, Tyler Pottkotter (tyler.pottkotter@wright.edu or X8449, 419-586-0249).

Faculty/Staff Parking Lot Policy

The faculty/staff parking lots (this includes the faculty/staff strip and the faculty/staff lot adjacent to the Learning Center) are for faculty and staff members only. In order to park in these lots you must visibly display a faculty/staff parking permit in your vehicle. If you currently do not have a faculty/staff parking permit, you can purchase one for $5 from the Enrollment Services Office.  These parking lots are closely monitored by the Lake Campus Police Officer and vehicles without parking permits will receive parking tickets.

If you drive a different vehicle to campus (your vehicle is in the shop and you have a loaner, you drove your spouse's vehicle, etc.) and you forget to switch over your parking permit, simply send the Campus Police Officer an email (tyler.pottkotter@wright.edu) or leave a voicemail (x8449 or 419-586-0249) with Your Name, and the Make, Model, and License Plate# of the vehicle you drove. This will ensure that you do not receive a parking ticket.

If you forget to inform the Campus Police Officer that you drove a different vehicle and you receive a parking ticket for parking in the faculty/staff lot, the ticket will be waived. Simply write your name on the ticket and drop it off at the Front Desk. You may also send the ticket to the Campus Police Officer via campus mail. REMINDER: Only tickets for parking in the faculty/staff lots will automatically be waived for faculty and staff members. Tickets for other violations, such as parking in the Fire Lane or Handicapped spots, will NOT be waived.

Parking Tickets

Parking tickets may be paid at the Enrollment Services Office located in Dwyer Hall. If you wish to dispute a parking ticket, contact Campus Police Officer, Tyler Pottkotter (tyler.pottkotter@wright.edu or X8449, 419-586-0249). Should a faculty/staff member fail to pay his or her parking tickets, the issue will be forwarded to Dean Bonnie Mathies.
