Campus Parking, Traffic, and Transportation Information


All persons enrolled at or employed by University of Puget Sound who wish to park motorized vehicles in university parking facilities must register their vehicle/s with Security Services. Vehicle registration decals can be picked up at the Security Services office, Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–4 p.m.

The use of motor vehicles on the University of Puget Sound campus is a privilege and not a right. This privilege is extended to those who operate vehicles in a safe and responsible manner; it requires strict adherence to state and local laws, as well as university regulations. All members of the campus community are expected to comply with the parking and traffic regulations. Understanding of, and compliance with, regulations will eliminate unnecessary expense and inconvenience.

Parking on campus is limited and not guaranteed. Security Services is responsible for administration and enforcement of campus parking and traffic regulations. Security Services is located at 3206 N. 15th St., 253.879.3311.
