Parking and Transportation

Freshman resident students are not permitted to have automobiles on campus or within the city of Newport during the academic year (September-May). Violating this policy will result in ticketing and towing. A freshman vehicle violation is $250 for each violation. Freshmen must complete two semesters at any institute of higher education before a vehicle is authorized. It is never based on the number of college credits a student has when entering the freshman year.

Freshman resident violations:

  • First violation: $250 fine and loss of sophomore privilege for 60 days.
  • Second violation: $250 fine, tow and loss of sophomore privilege for the first semester.
  • Three or more violations: $250 fine, tow, loss of privilege for the entire sophomore year and referral to the dean of students for student conduct review.

Freshman resident students who have not received a Salve Regina parking ticket but have been identified by other means as having a motor vehicle on campus or within the city of Newport will also be held responsible for violating this policy.

One Car/One Space Policy (Resident Policy)

Upper-class resident students are assigned parking in an authorized area on campus. All resident students must register their vehicles. Automobiles may not be used for any reason for on-campus transportation from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. This includes all campus parking lots (other than the one assigned) and Newport city streets adjacent to the University (see below for additional information).

Only the Office of Safety and Security may authorize an exception to this policy. If an exception is granted, the student is responsible to get the name and badge number of the officer granting permission.
