Parking Services is responsible for the implementation of the university parking policy set forth by the parking committee. Parking Services coordinates and regulates the administration of this policy with respect to vehicle registration and parking enforcement in an effort to provide safe parking for all members of the campus community and their guests.
Chapman University has a mandatory parking permit policy for all university constituents. This policy, mandated by the City of Orange, is designed to promote on-campus parking to lessen the impact on the residents living in close proximity to the university.
Parking is enforced 24 hours-per-day; 365 days-per-year. Parking without a valid parking permit will result in a parking citation.
Public Safety's Office is located at 418 N. Glassell St. You must register on-line at Vehicle Registration and bring your photo ID to Public Safety to obtain a parking permit. Students are automatically assessed a parking fee. Faculty and staff can pay at the Cashier's Office and bring a receipt to Public Safety to obtain a permit, or complete a Payroll Deduction Form at Public Safety prior to a permit being issued.
Parking permit waivers for those living on campus without a vehicle or commuting via alternative means and not driving to campus must be submitted once per academic year at the beginning of the fall semester. Should your commuting status change for the spring semester, the waiver deadline is 5 p.m. on February 21st. If you will be studying abroad during the spring semester, please return your parking permit to Public Safety and submit a request to Parking Services to deactivate your transponder (where applicable). Once you have done this, the system will allow you to waive the mandatory permit fee.
Should you have any questions regarding parking at Chapman University, please contact Parking Services at (714) 997-6560 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Orange has notified Chapman University that there will be major construction on Glassell Street mid-July through October 2015 due to a sewer replacement project. Expect delays. Please use alternate routes to access parking on campus; Lemon Street to the west of Glassell to access the Barrera Structure and Cambridge or Shaffer to the east of Glassell to access Walnut Street and the Lastinger Structure.
