Parking and Transportation Services is responsible for the regulation and enforcement of all University parking lots.  All vehicles parked on the URI campus mst have a URI parking permit displayed in full view at all times.

Like most universities, a convenient parking space is a premium commodity for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Our Parking Enforcement Officers and the University Police Officers monitor all parking lots throughout the University to ensure that vehicles are in compliance with all rules and regulations. Our goal is to ensure that parking spaces are available for those who have permits. We accomplish this through uniform and consistent parking enforcement.

Parking regulations help to ensure that there is an orderly system in place for all who use vehicles when coming to campus. The regulations also ensure that emergency vehicles and equipment have immediate access to all campus locations. Voluntary compliance is encouraged; however, individuals who disregard the University’s parking regulations will receive appropriate citations.

Our staff is committed to providing the best service possible to each member of the University of Rhode Island community and each person visiting campus. Our staff will be happy to offer any assistance or clarify information during your visit to the University campus.
