Parking is a problem on every college campus and Tunxis is no exception. Board of Trustees Policy governs traffic regulations. The College may ticket or tow vehicles.
Tickets are issued for the following infractions:
Group 1 – $10.00 Penalty
|Improper Parking e.g. not between the lines|
|Parking in a posted No Parking Zone|
|Parking in State Vehicle/Designated Spaces|
Group 2 – $25.00 Penalty
|Parking in Handicapped Space (official permit must be visible)|
|Parking in Fire Lane/Tow Zone|
|Parking in the circle near the flagpole|
Payment instructions: make check or money order payable to TCC and return in the addressed envelope (do not mail cash payment), or pay in person at the Business Office in Founders Hall, Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
All ticket revenue is allocated to the Tunxis Scholarship Program.
Unpaid tickets will result in a hold being placed on a student’s account. Fines double if not paid within 10 days of issuance.Disabled hang tag holders are reminded that DMV rules require hang tags to be displayed on rear view mirrors. Failure to properly display your hang tag is a violation.
No parking spaces are designated specifically for faculty and staff.
All students should park on campus. During the first few weeks of the semester extra guards are in the parking lots to assist. See a guard if you cannot find a space or if you’re unsure your car is parked correctly. If you park at the Centennial Inn or Five Guys, your car will be towed.
Anyone who feels they have unfairly been issued a ticket may appeal it. Appeals forms are available on the college website, Business Office and Information Desk. Completed appeals forms may be mailed to the College, attention: Parking Appeals Committee, emailed to [email protected] or left in the box in the Faculty Secretaries’ area. The decision of the Appeals Committee is final.
