Saint Louis University

Payment of Fines
Fines are payable at the Parking and Card Services Office within 14 days (not 14 work days). If not paid within 14 days (2 weeks), the University reserves the right to process fines against the student's account or through payroll deduction for faculty or staff.

Fines/Fees
The following fines/fees will be assessed to the owner/operator of any vehicle on University property in violation of the parking regulations defined by the University. The registered holder of a parking permit is responsible for parking violations by vehicles displaying the permit. By paying a fine, you accept responsibility for the vehicle, its activity on campus, and assume all violations incurred by said vehicle unless otherwise stated. These lists are no inclusive.

Removal and Impoundment
The Department of Public Safety (314-977-3000) is authorized to enter, remove, or impound motor vehicles from University property AT OWNER'S EXPENSE when the vehicle is in violation of the parking regulations and outlined violations for towable offenses.

The tow fee is currently $100, but is subject to change depending on the availability of the vendor providing the towing service. Special equipment or circumstances may increase the charge. A "drop" fee is charged in situations where the tow truck is hooked-up to the vehicle, but still on SLU property. A daily storage fee of $25 is charged if the vehicle is not reclaimed by the owner.

Parking and Card Services would like to remind everyone that cars parked on private property and surrounding business parking lots may result in a tow, at the owner's expense.

Disabling of Vehicles by Affixation of a Boot Device
Vehicles may be disabled by use of a boot or similar device. A fine of $50 for boot removal, plus all fines and fees owed, must be paid in full in order to secure removal of the boot.

Appeal Procedure
A parking citation may be appealed by filing online through Banner Self-Service under Parking and Card Vehicle Registration, Outstanding Parking Citations or a completed appeal form at the Parking and Card Services Office within 14 days of the citation. Parking citation fines must be paid before filing an appeal.
