Vehicle Security and Parking

It is the policy of St. Olaf College that all vehicles operated on campus by students, faculty, or staff must be registered with the Parking Office and display a current parking permit. For additional information concerning parking, please refer to the Parking Policy on the St. Olaf web page or call the Parking Office at 2972. St. Olaf College is not responsible for theft or damage that may occur to vehicles parked on campus. Public Safety officers patrol all parking areas in an attempt to deter this type of activity.
