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.
The 2014/2015 permits were valid through 8/14/15. The Vehicle Registration System is available to register for 2015/16 parking permits and parking permit waivers. Registrations submitted prior to 6/1/15 will need to be resubmitted. Waivers must be submitted each fall semester to continue to waive the mandatory parking permit. If you will be studying abroad during the fall semester and have a transponder, please contact Parking Services to deactivate the transponder so you will be able to apply for a parking fee waiver. The waiver deadline for the fall semester is September 20, 2015 at 5 p.m.
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.
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.
