Parking On Campus

general overview

As an urban community, Augsburg continues to work hard to maintain ample and effective parking for our University. While embracing the city and urban environment, parking can be limited. Parking on Augsburg’s campus does require a valid Augsburg issued permit at all times your vehicle is parked in an Augsburg space/lot. Your permit must reflect the appropriate area you are parked in, or you may still be subject to ticketing and/or towing at your expense. Please take the time to look at our map of Augsburg’s Campus for locations of parking lots, and the type of permit required.  For additional information please email parking@augsburg.edu.

Bicycles

Bicycle in the Twin Cities is a great opportunity to explore. View the following page for resources such as bicycle maps/trails, suggestions for gear, and how to get started! http://www.augsburg.edu/green/biking.html

Bicycles are not required to be registered, though it is highly recommended. Registering your bicycle allows Public Safety to contact you if there is an issue with your bicycle and it needs to be moved. Stolen bicycles are often recovered by Minneapolis Police. When your bicycle is registered, the opportunity for your bicycle to be returned to you is greatly increased. Bicycle Registration materials are also available at the Public Safety desk in the Urness/Mortensen lobby. Completed forms can be turned into Public Safety.

Bicycles may only be parked and locked to official bicycle racks. Bicycles parked along fences, handrails, or signposts will be impounded. Unclaimed bicycles will be donated to local bicycle restoration organizations. See the Motorcycle/Moped and Bicycle parking map (PDF).

Please take a look at the following Bicycle Safety Tips if you plan to bring your bicycle to campus.

Augsburg DPS personnel will be issuing citations (tickets) for vehicles without valid permits in all campus parking lots 24 hours a day.

Summer parking: Tickets will be issued to vehicles without a valid parking permit. Tickets will be issued to vehicles parked in the meter spots past the meter’s expiration.

Tickets will NOT be issued for Parking Wrong Lot or Permit Not Valid at this Time. Any 2017-2018 year or fall/spring semester Augsburg permit is valid in any Augsburg lot. Other violations may be written at the officers discretion.

Parking fines must be paid to DPS at the dispatch center or mailed to DPS at Campus Box #78, within 14 days of the issue date. Unpaid fines will be assessed to the individual’s Student Augsburg account.  For Faculty and Staff, unpaid fines will be forwarded to Payroll to be deducted on the next available payroll payment, and a late fee may be assessed. Anyone with an outstanding fine will not be allowed to register, receive transcripts, or purchase a parking permit in the future. Fines outstanding for more than one semester may be forwarded to a collection agency.

CITATION APPEAL PROCESS

Anyone wishing to appeal an Augsburg parking citation may do so by completing the appeal form PDF and submitting to DPS in person or by mailing it to the address listed on the form. Appeal forms are also available 24/7 at DPS.

Augsburg students, faculty, and staff may also appeal a citation online through Augnet’s Parking Services. After logging in, select the blue icon that says “appeals”. Select the violation you wish to appeal, write in your appeal information and submit. You will receive a response from the appeals committee on your appeal through e-mail.

Citations may be appealed to the Augsburg Parking Appeals Committee. All appeals must be submitted within 10 days of the issue date of the citation. The Parking Appeals Committee meets on a monthly basis and responds with their decisions to the person appealing. Only forms that are complete AND include payment will be reviewed. All Parking Appeals Committee decisions are final. A lost ticket, forgetfulness, parking only for a short period, failure to display parking permit, parking in non-designated spaces, and/or not seeing signs are unacceptable grounds for appeal, and will not be considered.

By appealing a ticket, you claim responsibility for all vehicles involved, regardless of ownership of the vehicle.
