Registration

 

Registration of Motor Vehicles

All vehicles including automobiles, motorcycles, mopeds, scooters and bicycles operating on campus must be registered and have the proper permit displayed. Vehicle registration will be valid from June 2017 through August 20, 2018. All vehicles and bicycles must renew their registration every academic school year. 

Registration is done through my.Belmont by logging in to your account and clicking on the "Bicycle and Vehicle Registration" link under the Campus Security and Safety tab on the left. Before registering online, make sure you have the following information:

  • Vehicle Make
    * Vehicle Model
    * Vehicle Year
    * Vehicle Color
    * License Plate Number
    * Best Contact Phone Number with Area Code
  • Your local address (where you live while attending school, not your permanent residence)
  • If you have a state-issued disability tag or placard and intend to utilize disability parking spaces on campus, you will be required to provide a copy of your state issued disability parking permit and documentation evidencing that the permit is issued in your name when picking up your decal.

Once you have registered your vehicle online, you may pick up your decal at the Office of Campus Security located in the Gabhart Student Center.

Decals must be permanently affixed to the lower left corner of the rear windshield. Parking decals must be affixed as designed and may not be taped or attached in a way that allows for easy removal.

Convertibles and other vehicles, which, by design, prohibit affixing in this manner, may display the decal on the left portion of the rear bumper.

Permits that have been altered in any way, including removing any part of the sticker, are no longer valid and vehicles are subject to being cited and fined as unregistered.

Persons desiring to operate a vehicle on campus on a temporary basis are required to obtain a temporary or visitor-parking permit from the department being visited or from Campus Security.

Students whose parent or spouse is employed by the university may not display a faculty/staff parking decal on the vehicle the student normally drives to class.

Parking decals include:

A - Faculty, staff, alumni, contractors and vendors are permitted to park anywhere on campus except for reserved and/or guest parking or parking reserved for persons with disabilities. The Ayers Garage and Curb Garage are only for A permits, C permits, and visitors.

B - Belmont Commons - Belmont Commons residents are required to park in the Belmont Commons and Concert Hall/Theater lots. They may not park in the church visitor parking.

C - Commuter students are permitted to park anywhere on campus except for reserved and/or guest parking or parking reserved for persons with disabilities. The Ayers Garage and Curb Garage are only for A permits, C permits, and visitors.

D - D permits (Dickens, Horrell residents) are required to park in the Dickens Garage.

E - E permits are issued to faculty / staff that have valid disability parking credentials displayed on their vehicle and have provided a copy of their state issued disability parking permit as well as documentation evidencing that the permit is issued in their name. E permits may park in any disability parking spaces on campus other than those in surface visitor parking lots.

H - H permits (Hillside residents) are required to park in the Hillview surface lot area or the Thrailkill garage.

J - J permits (Pembroke, Hail, Potter, Wright, Maddox, and Kennedy) are required to park on levels P4, P5, and P6 of the Johnson Center garage. 

N - N permits (Patton residents) are required to park on the designated levels of P4 & P5 of the Inman/McWhorter garage.

S - S permits (Bear House and Heron residents) are required to park on the designated level P4 & P5 of the Baskin Garage.

T - T permits (Thrailkill, Russell) are required to park in the Thrailkill Garage.

> NOTE: Residential students (B, D, H, T, J, S, & N decals) may park in surface lots on the west side of campus between 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Monday through Friday and from 4:30 pm on Friday until 8:00 a.m.. Residential permits parked in surface lots after 8:00 am (7:00 a.m. for Fidelity Visitor Parking Lot) are subject to being ticketed or towed at the owner's expense.

If a student moves from one sticker type residence to another, the Office of Campus Security will issue a decal for the new parking assignment. However, the student is responsible for re-registering online and coming into the Office of Campus Security to obtain the correct decal.

Student workers will not be issued Faculty/Staff decals. Only employees paid from Faculty/Staff payroll are issued Faculty/Staff decals.

A parking decal does not guarantee a place to park; it is merely permission to park on campus.
