Parking

Map of Point ParkPoint Park University obtains a variance for parking spaces that are as close as possible to the University residence halls. The parking meters will be marked with white cardboard “No Parking” signs. You will be given a “Parking Permit” to place on your dashboard so you will not have to pay for parking during the permitted parking times.

Please note that the parking variance is intended to give you sufficient time to unload your vehicle for the move in. It is not intended for “all day” or “all night” parking.

Although a number of parking spaces will be reserved, there may not be enough parking to accommodate the number of students who will be moving in at any given one time. For this reason, we ask that you unload your vehicle as quickly as possible and then move it to one of the off street parking garages or lots in the area.

 

Parking Restrictions

  1. Parking is not permitted from 7  a.m. – 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. on the Blvd. of the Allies, Ft. Pitt Blvd., First Avenue and Wood Street during “rush hour”. Failure to observe these restrictions will result in a parking ticket from the Pittsburgh Police and/or Parking Authority, and they may also tow your vehicle.
  2. There is NO PARKING AT ANY TIME on the section of Wood Street that runs between Academic and Lawrence Halls (area from Third Avenue to the Blvd. of the Allies).
  3. Please park only in the designated spaces. When you park, please look for any signs that prohibit parking, such as permanent metal “NO PARKING” signs.
  4. HANDICAPPED SPACES: You must have a handicapped license plate to park in one of these spaces, even with the variance. Parking in a handicapped space without handicapped plates can result in a parking ticket from the Pittsburgh Police and/or Parking Authority.
  5. While the Pittsburgh Police and Parking Authority allow the University some leeway during the move in, please note that if you receive a parking ticket, you will be responsible for payment.

The University cannot get tickets issued by the Pittsburgh Police and/or Parking Authority rescinded.
