All residents of University operated facilities, including all contracted employees who operate a motor vehicle will be required to pay a parking fee. This fee must be paid by the student at the time the regular registration fees are paid.
  3. Refunds for second semester will be given if it can be established that the car will not be used on campus. The parking permit must be returned to the Parking Office.
  4. It is the responsibility of the individual to obtain and properly display the permit he/she is assigned. (Failure to display a permit or the improper display of a permit by anyone connected with the University will constitute a parking violation by the operator of the vehicle.)
  5. Replacement permits can be purchased at the parking office. These will be replaced at full purchase price. ALL NEW VEHICLES MUST BE REGISTERED BEFORE PARKING ON CAMPUS.
  6. The University will not assume responsibility for the protection and/or care of any vehicle or its contents at any time it is operated or parked on campus. It is recommended that vehicles be kept locked at all times, and that visual valuables be removed when the vehicle is parked. Additionally, it is recommended that a list of serial numbers of tape decks, tires, batteries, etc., be kept for reporting purposes in case of theft. It is further suggested that cars kept parked for a number of days be checked daily for theft or vandalism. Theft or vandalism should be reported immediately to the Minot Police Department and Campus Security at 858-3210.
  7. The purchase of a reserved parking permit does not guarantee the holder a parking space.
