Parking Locations & Violations

Parking Violation StickerStudents parking outside of designated student areas will be parked illegally and will receive a violation sticker on their vehicles from Kent State Stark security officers.

There are several parking lots available for student use on the campus. Kent State Stark's goal is to provide an adequate number of parking spaces for all students. Although adequate parking is provided on campus as a whole, it does not guarantee a parking space immediately adjacent to the building in which students have a particular class.

Parking violations include, but are not limited to, parking in a space designated as handicapped without a state handicapped permit; utilizing more than one parking space per vehicle; parking in an area designated as faculty/staff or visitors' parking without the proper permit; parking a vehicle in a space other than a designated parking area; parking an oversized or recreational vehicle, boat, or trailer on campus without permission; leaving a vehicle on campus overnight without prior permission. Vehicles are not permitted on playing fields other than exceptions noted in the contract. Cars are not permitted to be parked along the playing fields on Frank Road. Jackson Township Police Department will be notified if this occurs.

Handicap Parking

Clearly marked handicapped parking spaces have been established at various locations around the campus. A state-issued disability parking placard or plate is required and must be properly displayed in order to park in these areas.  

Bicycles & Motorcycles

Bicycles must be stored in appropriate bike racks located on the concrete pad in the Frank Avenue student parking lot or the Faculty/Staff lot located behind the Fine Arts building. Bicycles parked in any other campus location is subject to receiving a VIOLATION sticker as well as Campus Security locking it; the owner must contact Campus Security to release it.

Motorcycles are encouraged to park on the designated concrete pad located in the Frank Avenue student parking lot (#101) and the Fine Arts student parking lot (#107). Motorcycles may park in any asphalt parking space PROVIDED that the driver uses a "kickstand disk" to ensure the kickstand does not gouge into and destroy the asphalt below it. Motorcycles found in asphalt parking lots without the use of a kickstand disk are subject to receiving a VIOLATION sticker. Parking permits are not required for motorcycles provided they are parked in the designated areas.
