(b) Such registration shall be valid until the following first of July and shall be conditioned upon the registrant's payment of a motor vehicle registration fee fixed by the Chancellor or designee and upon the registrant's remaining enrolled at the Health Science Center at Syracuse, if a student, or upon the continued employment at the Health Science Center at Syracuse if a faculty or staff member.

(c) Vehicles may be parked in the campus only when registered with the office of public safety and, in addition, displaying a current university parking permit. Parking permits, as provided in these rules and regulations, are issued upon payment of a university parking fee, approved as to amount, by the chancellor, or a designee, unless the vehicle is not subject to such regulations and, if parked, is in a paid lot or space.

Parking is prohibited outside the confines of any specific lines or designated space in the parking lot or at parking meters. Parking is not permitted at any area designated by yellow curbs and/or yellow diagonal hash marks on the pavement. Also, no person shall park a vehicle on the grounds of the university in such a manner as to interfere with the use of a fire hydrant, fire lane designated by yellow curb and/or permanent markings, or other emergency zone, create any other hazard, or unreasonably interfere with the free and proper use of the roadway.

(f) University parking permits must be displayed as the university indicates in vehicles parked on campus.

Ownership of the parking permit is not transferable and can only be used to park one vehicle at any given time. Keycard, if issued, may not be loaned to any other individual.

(g) Instructions of the public safety officers relative to the various parking areas must be followed.

(h) Parking fees as approved by the chancellor, or designee shall be charged for motor vehicles parked within designated lots, consistent with applicable collective bargaining agreements and in accordance with guidelines established by the chancellor or designee.
