Parking Policy and Information

Nebraska Wesleyan University encourages the use of alternative transportation such as carpooling, city bus service and/or bicycling.

Enrolled full- and part-time students must display hang tags on all vehicles parked in NWU lots. Hang tags are provided to each student, and are delivered in student mailboxes at the beginning of each academic year. If you have not been provided a hang tag, contact the Physical Plant at (402) 465-2321.

With the exception of the 24-hour reserved lot located south of the Townhouse Village (lot 7) and the 24-hour reserved lot located north of Lucas Hall (lot 12), there is no fee for parking.

Nebraska Wesleyan University parking lots are designated with a sign near the lot entrance or on individual stall signs with a colored stripe or stripes.

Tickets may also be issued for vehicles parked in a fire lane or handicap space without proper permit, in a reserved/assigned space, or for parking over the line or taking two spaces.

Vehicles may receive a citation every 24 hours until the violation is corrected.

Handicap space violations carry a $100.00 fine. All other violations carry a $25.00 fine. Fire lane violations carry a $25.00 fine and may result in an immediate tow. Fines will be added to NWU student/employee accounts as applicable. Payment can be made at the Business Office window.

Towing policy

Vehicles may be towed for parking in a fire lane or handicap space, blocking another vehicle, parking in a prohibited space, or having three (3) unpaid tickets. University personnel are not required to contact the vehicle owner prior to towing.

Note: Once a vehicle is hooked to the tow truck, it will be removed. If the owner arrives before the tow truck leaves, they may be able to pay the tow bill and the driver will leave it.
