Is there a limit to the number of tickets I can be issued?
No. You will receive a citation any time your vehicle is found to be in violation of parking regulations and will be responsible for any and all fees.
Who can use on-campus apartment visitor parking?

Students with parking permits who wish to park near the on campus apartments should use the Brown A/S/H parking lots nearby. Apartment residents are responsible for informing guests of parking options. Additionally, guests are responsible for all citations that they may receive. Please reference the Apartment Parking Policy for more parking information.
