Automobile Regulations

All students, faculty and staff who operate a motor vehicle on University property must register that vehicle with the TCU Police Department and comply with the rules and regulations set forth. The annual registration fees and the TCU Campus Parking Rules and Regulations can be found at www.cap.tcu.edu.

Purchasing a parking permit does not guarantee a parking place nor does the lack of a parking space justify violation of any parking regulation. The fact that a citation is not issued when a vehicle is illegally parked does not mean or imply that the regulation or rule is no longer in effect.

Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed, immobilized or towed by the TCU Police Department. The payment of traffic fines, of immobilization or towing charges does not entitle the violator to accrue an indefinite number of citations. Continued parking offenses may lead to a suspension of campus driving and parking privileges, and may also result in disciplinary action by the University. Whenever it is necessary to move an illegally parked vehicle, an independent wrecker operator will tow the vehicle to the wrecker's storage area. The owner of the vehicle will be responsible for the wrecker fee and storage, plus the fine for the traffic violation.

The University does not assume any liability concerning the protection of the motor vehicle or any responsibility for providing special parking places near a building in which an employee works or a student's residence hall or class.
