The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), Memphis Fire Protection Laws and insurance regulations as well as general safety precautions make parking and traffic control on campus a necessity. Written regulations and appropriate signage are established to facilitate traffic flow, control parking and protect fire lanes and unloading areas as are designated. In consultation with the Rhodes Student Government, the Social Regulations Council, the Traffic Appeals Committee and various other representatives of the Rhodes community, regulations and procedures have been developed for using a motor vehicle on campus. Details are furnished in the Campus Safety Brochure, and both the Student Handbook and College Handbook. If you have any questions, please contact the Campus Safety office at (843) 3880.
Registration of Motor Vehicles. All members of the Rhodes community who park on campus are required to register their vehicles, motorcycles and bicycles with the Campus Safety Department and display a current registration decal, if they plan on either driving or parking on campus property. If a member of the Rhodes community drives a vehicle or motorcycle on campus, it must be registered with either a permanent or temporary registration decal. (Exceptions only by the direction of the Campus Safety Director)
All students will go online and complete the Request for Parking Permit form found after going to Campus Safety, then Parking on the left side of the web page. This is to be completed for cars, motorcyclees and bicycles.
Students who intend to use a vehicle on campus have to have a decal displayed. After having registered online, students will be notified via email to pick up the decals at Rhodes Express in Burrow.
Students who will not be using a vehicle on campus and/or plan to park off campus should also complete the appropriate portion of the same form and return it to the Campus Safety Office.
Faculty and Staff should register their vehicles online. Persons choosing not to register their vehicles for campus parking must still abide by all "off campus" parking regulations as listed below.
Decals are colored to indicate registration information and specified parking areas. They must be properly affixed to the lower left, inside driver′s side front windshield.
Handicap Parking (to include temporary handicap).
Vehicles parked in handicap spaces must display proper handicap placard or license information. The Memphis Police Department and Campus Safety can also cite violations with fines of $50 to $100.
If a "temporary" handicap need arises for students, petition must be made to the Director of Disability Services.
