Parking at Quinnipiac University 

Parking at Quinnipiac University is considered a privilege and provided free of charge for residential students, faculty and staffCommuter students are charged an annual parking permit fee of $180. Please note, first-year residential students are not allowed to have cars on campus, and therefore not eligible to receive a parking pass. 

Faculty, staff, students and visitors all share the limited spaces available on our three campuses. QU community members (faculty, students and staff) are assigned parking areas to park their vehicles. Parking is permitted only at posted parking areas. Parking is prohibited elsewhere, even in the absence of No Parking signs. Additionally, no one should park at yellow painted curbs on the campus. Anyone who parks in areas they are not assigned to park will be subjected to a fine and repeated violations will result in the loss of parking privileges on the campus.  

Because parking spaces are limited, university faculty, staff, students and visitors are encouraged to explore alternate options such as public transit, carpooling, walking and/or bicycling to campus. 

All faculty, students and staff must apply for a parking pass through One Stop. All vehicles operated on any Quinnipiac University property must be registered. All unregistered vehicles will be issued a citation and are subject to tow at the owner’s expense. 

Any student who receives a parking citation has 30 days to make a payment.
