Parking regulations are in effect and enforced 24/7. Our Campus Parking Management Plan outlines in detail the policies, procedures, and regulations that govern parking on the Keuka College campus.
Parking Registration, Decals and Violations
All members of the Keuka College community who wish to park on campus must register their vehicle with the Office of Campus Safety and obtain a valid parking decal for the year. Prices for students vary, depending on how many semesters you plan to utilize campus parking:
- Residential and Commuter Students Fall and Spring Semesters - $150, Spring Semester only - $75
Please review our parking map to see the designated lots for students, employees, and other visitors. Those who do not follow our outlined parking policies and regulations may be subject to parking violations. All violations must be paid within 7 days of the violation's written date.
If you'd like to appeal a recent parking violation, please complete and submit our Parking Appeal Form.
After Hours Open Parking Applies to Faculty and Staff Lots
Students—Please remember that after-hours open parking (from 3 p.m - 8 a.m.) applies only to faculty/staff lots. Visitor lots/spaces are not open to students. Parking in lots L (except commuter students), O and X are closed to student parking at all times. Violators will be ticketed.

Anyone violating the parking rules as we have outlined will not only find a written notice on their vehicle but will be emailed a notification. This email will include links which can be used to either pay the appropriate fine online or appeal the citation. Fines can also be paid in person at the Student Accounts Office in the basement of Ball Hall.
All fines must be paid within seven days. Drivers will face the loss of parking privileges and the prospect of having their vehicle towed off of campus if they:
- Accumulate $150 or more in unpaid fines.
- Accumulate more than three parking citations within three months.
- Allow parking fines to go unpaid for 105 days.
- Drivers will be notified at least twice to remove their vehicle before it is towed. All towing will be at the driver’s expense.

Policies and Regulations
The following policies and regulations have been adopted to maintain a safe and orderly movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic on campus and are fundamental to the comprehensive parking management plan of Keuka College. Remember that parking on campus is a privilege, not a right.
Drivers must use authorized parking spaces and lots, obey lawful instructions of College Security Officers, and comply with all regulations of the New York State Vehicle & Traffic Law and the Keuka College Parking Plan.
- Continued failure to abide by traffic and parking rules and regulations may result in disciplinary action and revocation of parking privileges.
- Parking rules and regulations are in effect from the first day of classes through graduation and are enforced 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
- The speed limit on campus is 10 MPH.
- No overnight parking (midnight to 6 a.m.) in visitor spaces.
- Removal, damage, or possession of Keuka College parking and traffic signs will result in disciplinary action and revocation of parking privileges.
- Parking on campus is by classification in color-coded lots.
- Lack of available parking in a desired area is not a valid excuse for violation of these policies and regulations.
- Vehicles may not park in areas/spaces that are reserved for specific purposes, e.g. handicap, fire personnel, loading docks, and service vehicles.
- Parking is not permitted on lawns or in fire lanes, driving lanes, or intersections.
