This includes involving vehicles owned or operated by him or her, or in his or her custody and operated by anyone having express or implied permission to operate said vehicle. Parking citations on vehicles not registered with the Parking Office will be identified using state DMV files. The registered owner will be determined and all outstanding and future parking citations will be linked to the appropriate student, faculty/staff member or owner.
Campus violations that are unpaid, will subject the violator to permit application restrictions. Failure to settle parking citations may result in the following:
Upon receipt of four unpaid citations, the vehicle may be impounded at the owner's/operator's expense, without warning, regardless if the vehicle is legally parked at the time of impoundment or not.
Campus parking privileges may be withdrawn or denied.
Transcripts and/or graduation diplomas may be withheld.
New parking permits, including temporaries, will not be issued unless all previous citations have been settled.
These regulations are in effect (24) hours a day, seven days a week, throughout the entire calendar year unless otherwise designated. (See Appendix B or lot signs). The following violations are designated as campus violations and are processed through administrative procedure.
Parking on Campus Without a Permit:
No vehicle, which includes any motorized vehicle or motorcycle, shall be parked on campus, or any portion thereof, without first having secured a valid parking permit, except for the parking terraces, Blue-Premium parking area, or metered spaces.

No vehicle is allowed to park in the following areas: red curbs, roadways, driveways, sidewalks, hashed marked areas, fire lanes, lawns, in front of chained roadways or entrances, or any other area designated by signs or stenciled as “No Parking Zone.” Vehicles are required to be parked in designated parking stalls only. Vehicles must be parked between two yellow lines. Any vehicle that is occupying two stalls by any part of the vehicle straddling the yellow line is in violation. Automobiles may not park in motorcycle areas at anytime.
Parking in a Service Area:
Parking any vehicle in a service stall, without a valid permit is prohibited and will be cited.
Parking in a Gate-Controlled Area:
To provide control of certain assigned areas, access to such areas may be regulated by controlled access gates. It shall be a violation of these regulations to park a vehicle not bearing the appropriate valid university parking permit in a controlled access parking area except during the time a permit is not required. (See Appendix C or signs at each entrance.) In the event access controls are not operable, parking must be in accordance with the times and regulations, posted at the entrance for that area. A fee, determined by the University Parking Office, to cover the cost of lost or mutilated gate openers/cards shall be assessed to anyone who has lost or mutilated an opener/card.
Parking any vehicle in a metered space, beyond the metered time, is prohibited unless otherwise specified (see Appendix B or meter placard). If a vehicle is parked continuously at an expired meter, subsequent citations may be issued every two hours. Meter malfunctions must be reported to the Parking Office within two hours.
Failure to Obey Attendant:
Failure to follow directions provided by attendants will result in a citation being sent to the perpetrator through the mail.
Placing a previously issued citation on a vehicle or leaving a previously issued citation on your windshield is prohibited and shall be deemed as attempting to falsify information.
Altering, changing, or attempting to duplicate any permit is prohibited. The vehicle will be impounded immediately.
Parking a vehicle at any time in a manner which blocks access to a trash or recycling receptacle is prohibited.
Disabled Permit Parking Only:
Parking any vehicle in a disabled permit only parking area without properly displaying a valid disabled permit or plates is prohibited.

Students with motorcycle permits may not use automobile spaces except at paid meters. Automobiles may not park in motorcycle designated areas.
Possession of Lost/Stolen Permit:
Displaying a permit that has been reported as lost or stolen, even if used by the original permit holder, is prima facie evidence that a permit was improperly obtained. The vehicle will be impounded. The permit must be surrendered, the appropriate fee paid and all outstanding citations must be cleared. Reporting a permit as lost or stolen to obtain additional permits for concurrent use, may result in loss of parking privileges and could initiate legal action.
Valid License Plates:

Energy Conservation and Emissions Reduction Policy
OPERATING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Subject: Energy Conservation and Emissions Reduction Policy
Effective Date: July 1, 2012
Revision Date: July 1, 2011
In January 2007 President Albrecht signed the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment. As a result, a Sustainability Council and Climate Action Plan were put in place for the purpose of transitioning USU to carbon neutrality by 2050. At the center of this effort is the need to reduce energy use, especially that which originates from burning fossil fuels.
There is potential for considerable energy conservation measures from behavioral change by employees, students, and campus visitors in conjunction with installing energy efficient technologies. Energy costs are a major component of the University’s operating budget; thus, energy conservation and efficiency measures can become major components of fiscal responsibility.
525.4 IDLE-FREE CAMPUS
In order to reduce USU’s emissions of CO, CO2, NOx, and other exhaust components and to improve air quality on campus and in the local community, USU adopts the following at the Logan, Tooele, Vernal, Roosevelt, Brigham City, Price, and Blanding campuses:
(1) Idling of gasoline and diesel powered vehicles shall be prohibited on campus, however,
(2) Nothing in this policy shall be implemented in a punitive manner, through the issuing of citations, tickets, or fines, rather,
(3) The idle-free initiative shall be implemented as an educational process.
(4) Police and emergency vehicles shall be exempt from this policy.
(5) Other vehicles that must use their engines to perform useful work while stationary (for example, concrete mixers that must keep their drums rotating to prevent concrete from solidifying and garbage trucks that must keep their engines running to compact trash) also are exempt from this policy while their engines are performing such tasks.
Exceptions to requirements of Policy 525 require the approval of the appropriate Dean or Vice President.
