Parking Citations

Linfield University Public Safety issues parking citations to educate drivers on parking safety.

Please remember to keep fire lanes open so emergency vehicles have access. Only park in disabled parking spots with state-issued disabled placards. The 10-15 minute parking spaces and visitor spaces are strictly enforced, as well as the ADA spaces. Visitor spaces are not for Linfield community members, including those who live off-campus.

LPS will also issue citations to vehicles in violation of Linfield's parking regulations.

How to appeal a citation

The appeal process is in place for use by those who wish to dispute or request leniency for a parking ticket they have received. This process allows for the resolution of any misunderstanding regarding the parking rules and regulations. The process is a parking appeal review which affords the opportunity to explain the circumstances that made it necessary to park in violation. Before submitting an appeal, please review the Linfield parking regulations.
