One of the duties of the Lakeland Campus Police Department is to monitor, maintain and enforce parking on Lakeland College grounds. Student parking is available at NO CHARGE to students and visitors and is conveniently located around the college. The college also offers a FREE shuttle bus service to and from your vehicle. Students and visitors may not park on the grass, over yellow lines, in faculty/staff parking or in handicapped parking without a valid handicapped permit. No overnight parking is permitted without permission from the Lakeland Campus Police Department.
Remember, if you are parked in a handicapped spot with a valid permit, the person to whom the permit was issued MUST be present. If you are found using a permit that does not belong to you, you may be cited or arrested per Ohio Revised Code.
We have received numerous complaints of vehicles being illegally parked in handicapped spaces. We are aggressively patrolling these areas and taking enforcement action against violators. Please make sure your handicapped permit is valid, issued to you, and visible. If you see violations, please contact the Police Department.
When pulling into a parking space, please be aware of the vehicles around you. Do not enter what looks like a parking spot if there are two cars in front of or behind the space (triple parking). You will be blocking someone in. Likewise, do not put yourself in a situation that would allow you to be the car being block in. Often, we are unable to locate the owner or assist in these situations. When in doubt, park in a different space.
Remember that when it snows, yellow lines or parking signs may be covered up. Please be careful when parking during the winter season and be aware of parking regulations, spaces and signs. If you are in doubt or have any questions, feel free to contact the Police Department.
Metered parking is for short-term, 45 minute parking only. The meters only take quarters. You are responsible for making sure that you have enough time left on your meter. When in doubt, park in the free public parking area.
The Lakeland Campus Police Department does not perform road service, but will contact the road service company of your preference to assist you. Some companies offer discounts to students.
The Lakeland shuttle bus service operates on weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays on the main campus. The shuttle bus travels along the parking lot perimeters to pick up passengers. Drop-off points are the Clocktower, Nursing Drive on the north side of C-building, the T-building east traffic circle, and the traffic circle on the south side of E-building. Shuttles are a key element of student safety. They are radio-equipped and can be dispatched to a specific location by the police communications officer. Callers can use any parking lot phone or college pay phone to summon a shuttle.
Holden University Center
The pick-up and drop-off points are only at the Clocktower Circle and Holden University Center locations.
*Campus shuttle service does not run during the summer term.
