Parking is a problem on every college campus and Tunxis is no exception. Board of Trustees Policy governs traffic regulations. The College may ticket or tow vehicles.
Tickets are issued for the following infractions:
Group 1 -$10.00 Penalty
|Parking in Faculty/Staff Lots|

|Parking in the Circle Near Flag Pole|
Group 2 – $25.00 Penalty
|Parking in Disabled|
|Parking in Fire Lane/Tow Zone|
|Blocking Cross Walk/Driveway|
Unpaid tickets will result in a hold being placed on a student’s account. Fines double if not paid within 10 days of issuance.Disabled hang tag holders are reminded that DMV rules require hang tags to be displayed on rear view mirrors. Failure to properly display your hang tag is a violation.
No parking spaces are designated specifically for faculty and staff.
All students should park on campus. During the first few weeks of the semester extra guards are in the parking lots to assist. See a guard if you cannot find a space or if you’re unsure your car is parked correctly. If you park at the Centennial Inn or Five Guys, your car will be towed.
Anyone who feels they have unfairly been issued a ticket may appeal it. Appeals forms are available on the college website, Business Office and Information Desk. Completed appeals forms may be mailed to the College, attention: Parking Appeals Committee, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or left in the box in the Faculty Secretaries’ area. The decision of the Appeals Committee is final.
