Parking and Campus Vehicle Registration Information
The Texas Education Code and the CTCD Board of Trustees give the CTC Police Department the authority to regulate parking and traffic on campus and to issue parking permits and citations. Each person operating a motor vehicle or motorcycle on campus shall be held responsible for obeying all campus parking regulations as well as all state parking and traffic laws.
Central Texas College considers the use of a vehicle on campus a convenience and is not obligated to furnish unlimited parking to accommodate all vehicles.
Central Texas College will, however, attempt to provide a reasonable number of parking spaces in keeping with available resources, but it does not assume any liability concerning the protection of motor vehicles.
Student, staff and guest parking is available in parking lots throughout campus EXCEPT WHERE MARKED "No Parking", "Reserved", "20-Minute Parking", "Maintenance", "Official Use", "Handicapped", or "Adjunct Faculty", or where temporarily designated for a special individual or activity. The entire vehicle must be within the boundaries of the marked space indicated by the painted yellow or white lines. Failure of one (1) vehicle to park within the marked boundaries is not implied consent for others to park with any part of their vehicle over the line or outside the marked boundary. Reserved parking spaces are limited to full-time staff members only and requires a yearly fee. Vehicles parked in violation of these parking regulations may be towed to a local storage facility. Any charges incurred will be the responsibility of the owner/driver. The vehicle owner/driver will be responsible for finding a legal parking space, and the lack of parking spaces close to where the student or staff member works or attends class is not a valid excuse for violating any parking regulation. Students are never allowed to park in Reserved, 20-Minute, Official Use, Visitor, or Special Permit spaces when attending class.
Vehicles in violation of any state law, rule or regulation regulating parking on campus can be immobilized or towed to a storage facility. All charges incurred become the responsibility of the vehicle owner or operator.
Only those persons who are in compliance with TRC Subtitle H. Chapter 681.002 are authorized to use parking spaces reserved for handicapped persons. Those who are in compliance will have a designated numbered placard hung on the rearview mirror, or license plate issued by the county tax collector of the county in which they reside. Those individuals with temporary handicapped parking letters issued by the CTC Office of Disability Support Services, will place the authorization letter on the driver's side dashboard, visible for verification. Those individuals who are not in compliance with the above mentioned statue will be issued a Justice of the Peace Citation, with a fine not to exceed $500.00, or a Campus parking citation with a fine not to exceed $50.00. The Campus Police reserve the right to verify the identity of the owner of a handicapped placard.
Abandoned Vehicles/Found Property
Vehicles left on campus for a period of 48 hours or more will be considered abandoned unless prior approval is given by the Campus Police. The vehicle will be tagged and if not removed within the specified time period it will be inventoried and turned over (towed) to a vehicle storage facility for further disposition. All towing charges incurred will be the responsibility of the owner/driver. All abandoned or found property is turned in to the Campus Police and if not claimed within 30 days by the owner will be disposed of in accordance with applicable state laws. For further information consult the office of the Campus Police.
VEHICLE REGISTRATION PROCEDURES
All students (full or part-time) attending Central Texas College, who operate a motor vehicle on the Central Texas College campus and the Fort Hood Campus, regularly or occasionally, and all faculty and staff members are required to obtain a parking permit. Students should obtain their permits during normal fall, spring, or summer registration periods at Building 137. Permits are available anytime after normal semester registration and can be obtained at the CTC Police Department, Building 137. State vehicle registration documents, current CTC ID card, and a valid driver's license are required to register a vehicle to park on campus. Parking permits are issued at no charge.
Display of Parking Permit
Every individual who operates or parks a vehicle on campus must:
- Register the vehicle with the CTC Police Department.
- Request a parking permit for each vehicle driven.
- Properly display and affix the parking permit to the window as designed.
- Become familiar with the parking and traffic regulations on campus.
- Report any temporary disabled vehicle to the campus police.
- Obtain a temporary parking permit when visiting or when using a temporary means of transportation.
Parking permits shall be placed on the outside lower-left corner of the vehicle's rear window, clearly visible to the officer and not obstructed. Parking permits are not transferable from one vehicle to another.
