Faculty and Staff Parking

Existing permit holders with permits expiring on August 31, 2020 will have access to the North Lot (Student lot) through the end of the calendar year. In order to ensure that your parking privileges have been extended through June 30,2021 and that you have been reassigned to the correct lot, you must send an e-mail to campus.activities@lehman.cuny.edu prior to your first visit on campus with your name and the five digit code on the back of your ID following the "*" or "+" so that your dual access ID card can be programmed prior to your arrival. Once programmed, your dual access card will be good for the entire Fall semester.

General Parking Information

While on campus, all parking permits must be displayed in all vehicles parked in the college’s parking lots. Vehicles that do not display a permit will be ticketed.  Parking in the college lots is only permitted while you are physically on campus. Persons who leave their cars in the lot while not on campus and beyond the allotted time period are in violation of College parking policy and risk losing their parking privileges. More detailed information regarding parking rules and privileges is available at http://www.lehman.cuny.edu/lehman/public-safety/documents/TrafficEnforcement.pdf.

Enforcement

The College provides Campus Peace Officers for the safety of persons and property. All persons using the campus parking facilities are expected to cooperate with the officers by accepting their directions and suggestions. Officers will place tickets on all vehicles in violation of parking regulations.

As many of you are aware, an unsafe condition exists as students, faculty, and staff attempt to cross the street on Goulden Avenue to access the South Parking Lot. The condition is being created by a constant flow of double-parked cars that impede both vehicular and pedestrian movement in the area.

To alleviate this condition, the Public Safety Department will issue “double-parking Summons”. Our intention with this initiative is not to cause inconvenience to any member of the College Community but rather to provide a safer environment in that area.

Penalties

Please be advised that failure to pay parking violations summonses may result in the revocation of your campus parking privileges, deactivation of your dual card and, for students a negative service indicator will be placed on your CUNYfirst account. Anyone who repeatedly violates College parking regulations will forfeit their privilege of using the College parking facilities, and will be reported to the proper College authorities.

Should it become necessary to remove a vehicle which is found to be in violation of parking regulations, the owner will be liable for all expenses incurred.

If your vehicle is TOWED, report to the Public Safety Department for all the information needed to retrieve your vehicle. The 50th and 52nd Police Precincts (according to where the vehicle is parked) will be notified of the towing occurrence.
