Parking Rules and Regulations

Any student or employee who operates a vehicle on the property of SBTS/Boyce on a regular basis must have a parking permit.
Student permits are $50 and may be obtained online at
Faculty, staff and full time employees must register their vehicle online.
Non-student, part-time employees must obtain their parking permit by going to the Campus Police office.

Parking restrictions are enforced Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., with the exception of dorm and residential lots which are enforced 24/7.

Obtaining a parking permit authorizes a person to park on campus in designated areas; it does not guarantee a parking space.
The lack of a space in any area at any time is not a valid excuse for violating these regulations.

A parking permit is valid only when it is properly adhered on the lower left corner of the rear windshield. Please be sure to remove your previous parking permit before placing a new permit on your vehicle.
If you do not remove your previous permit, you must place the new permit directly above the older one.

You are responsible for renewing your permit at the time of its expiration, as indicated by month and year on the permit.

Permit is non-transferrable and must stay on the vehicle to which it was registered.

Students who live in student housing must leave their vehicles parked in their respective housing parking lots while attending class.

Boats, RVs, trailers, campers, or any other vehicles used for recreational purposes are not to be parked on SBTS/Boyce property without approval from Campus Police.

Handicapped parking is permitted across campus provided the vehicle displays a permit issued by any local or state governmental agency.

As a courtesy to SBTS/Boyce’s neighbors—students, faculty, staff and guests are strongly encouraged not to park their vehicles on the residential streets adjacent to the campus. Those streets include Godfrey, Aubert, Upland, Pleasantview, and Meadowlark Avenues.

Parking permits may be revoked for non-payment of fines or repeat offenses.

Vehicles with a revoked permit or in violation of fire lanes, fire hydrants or handicapped parking may be towed at the owner’s expense.

Thirty minute parking spaces are strictly enforced and are designated for persons who need to conduct limited business with SBTS/Boyce.

Pedestrians have the right of way at all intersections and crosswalks whether marked or unmarked.

Applicable traffic laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky are in effect at all times.

The speed limit on SBTS/Boyce roads is 15 mph unless otherwise posted.
