Rules For Parking, Vehicular and Pedestrian Traffic and Safety

Persons who drive vehicles on the various campus locations are subject at all times to the motor vehicle laws of the State of New York, the rules and regulations of the State University of New York at Buffalo and to the ordinances of the City of Buffalo and Town of Amherst where applicable.

A complete list of campus rules and regulations consistent with the Vehicle and Traffic Law relating to parking, vehicular and pedestrian traffic and safety is on file with the Office of the Secretary of State, the offices of the clerks of the Town of Amherst and City of Buffalo, the Office of University Police and the Office of Parking and Transportation Services and may be reviewed, by appointment, within the normal business hours of these offices.

Rules and Regulations Are Subject to Change

Parking rules and regulations are subject to change for certain campus events, special occasions and emergencies. Restrictions will be posted by the Parking and Transportation Services office and will be strictly enforced.

University Rules and Regulations

Parking and Traffic Regulations

  • Vehicle Registration. All faculty, staff and students are required to register motor vehicles annually with Parking and Transportation Services on the North Campus. All faculty, staff and students shall be bound by the posted and published traffic regulations.
  • A copy of the complete State University of New York at Buffalo Vehicle Regulations may be obtained from the Department of University Police, Bissell Hall, North Campus or Office of Parking and Transportation Services in the Ellicott Complex, Spaulding Quad, North Campus.
  • Permits — all faculty, staff and students will be issued a Vehicle Registration Permit upon the completion of vehicle registration and the payment of the required fee(s). The Vehicle Registration Permit must be affixed from the rearview mirror. It will be the responsibility of the motorist to keep the permit visible. Other permits are to be affixed or displayed in accordance with the printed instructions issued with the permit.
  • Disability Parking Permits (permanent) — the university recognizes only state or municipality issued disability parking permits as valid for use in designated accessible parking areas on campus. These permits must be accompanied by a University-issued disability parking permit. Students with permanent handicapping conditions should secure municipal permits from their home area Police Department or from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles.
  • Disability Parking Permits (Temporary) — students who need special parking consideration due to a temporary handicapping condition must apply for special permission from Parking and Transportation Services. A medical certification of disability must accompany the application.
  • Parking Policy — automobile parking on the campus is considered to be a privilege granted by the university. The Administration is aware that there may be a shortage of convenient parking spaces during peak periods and is attempting to keep up with the heavy demands of the student and faculty population as efficiently as finances and land permit. In order to make parking as equitable as possible, an effort is made to keep parking regulations reasonable and strictly enforced. Each student is expected to work out a schedule of arrival at the campus which will allow him or her time to find a legal parking place. Ignorance of the regulations is not considered an excuse for a violation.
  • Parking is prohibited at all times on the roadways (except as posted), sidewalks, lawns, grounds, lanes and through ways of parking areas. The university may have illegally parked vehicles towed away at the owner’s expense.
  • Parking Fines and Penalties —a university parking summons is issued for any non-moving violation that occurs on the campuses of the State University of New York at Buffalo. Payment of the fine associated with such violation is returnable to the Parking and Transportation office within the time period specified on the summons. A plea against a university parking summons must be returned in the manner described on the summons in order to request a hearing before a hearing officer. An appeal of the hearing officer's decision is made to a three member review panel. To facilitate the recovery of outstanding parking fines, faculty and staff may be subject to payroll deduction, students may be subject to a hold on their account.
  • Liability. The university accepts no liability for loss or damage to a motor vehicle or its contents. This includes any damage caused by moving, booting or towing.
  • The following traffic controls are applicable to the grounds of the State University of New York at Buffalo (North Campus), Town of Amherst, Erie County, unless otherwise indicated.
