Parking on campus is very easy because there is always enough room for all the students, faculty and staff. If one parking lot fills up, then there are other lots available. And, parking decals only cost $5 per year. To get a decal, just go to Public Safety and fill out a form with your personal and your vehicle's information, including the license plate number, make, model, and color. Public Safety needs to know this information in case you leave your lights on or if theft becomes an issue. They also need to keep track of all vehicles in case of an issue with a visitor or unwanted guest. Public Safety is always walking around checking parking lots for suspicious activity.
If you are using a different vehicle for an extended period of time or if you get a new vehicle, then Public Safety needs to be notified as soon as possible so they can have that new information on file. Overall, parking Thomas is easy and relatively pain-free.
