The Police Department at John Carroll University is primarily responsible for ensuring the safety of all persons living, working or visiting the University. This requires considerable attention to regulating the flow of traffic and the appropriate use of parking.

The Parking Office coordinates all campus parking functions, including:

  • Providing information, assistance, and direction to anyone parking on campus.
  • Issuing parking permits to students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
  • Enforcing parking rules and regulations, and coordinating parking services for campus events.
  • A student may register only one vehicle. The student must be the owner (family or individually owned) or the primary operator of that vehicle (family vehicle) and may not register the vehicle of another student.   Parking permits are not transferable between persons.
  • We have developed rules and regulations to help govern traffic and parking on University property. Adherence to these rules will facilitate the safe and efficient use of parking areas and roadways around campus. Please read the following regulations carefully. If you have questions please call the JCU Parking Office at 216.397.2277 or 216.397.1234 after hours.

To call for the JCU Shuttle Service which runs Sunday evening through Friday evening, please call 216-397-2287.  

The JCU Rules and Regulations are still enforced at all times.
