Parking

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
Improper Parking/Pickup/ Drop Off Zone/Snow Bank
Parking in No Parking Zone
Parking in State Vehicle Space
Parking in the Circle Near Flag Pole

Group 2 – $25.00 Penalty

Parking in Disabled
Parking in Fire Lane/Tow Zone
Speeding/Reckless Driving
Blocking Cross Walk/Driveway
Obstruction/Double Parking

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.

During the 2012 -2013 academic year no parking spaces have been 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 tx-parking-appeals@tunxis.edu or left in the box in the Faculty Secretaries’ area. The decision of the Appeals Committee is final.

Any student interested in serving on the Parking Appeals Committee should send an email to ccleary@tunxis.edu.
