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.

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 JCUPD office at 216.397.2277 or 216.397.1234 after hours.

Remember, the purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space.

A student may register only one vehicle. He/She must be the owner or the primary operator of that vehicle and may not register the vehicle of another student.

All vehicles must be parked within the yellow painted lines marking parking spaces.

Motorcycles, motorbikes, and motor scooters are subject to the same regulations as automobiles.

During the academic year, the campus is accessed through the entrance on Carroll Blvd between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7 to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The Belvoir Boulevard entrance is open overnight between 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. Monday through Thursday and opens at 5 p.m. Friday until 9 a.m. Monday for weekends.
