There are some new parking rules for Florida Atlantic students attending classes this summer. On May 10, FAU Parking and Transportation Services announced new rules and regulations for students and faculty on its website.

Between the end of the spring semester and May 23, anyone — whether they had a valid parking permit or not — could park in the blue or green lots on campus. As of Monday, Parking and Transportation is enforcing violations in all green and blue lots.

Those with valid permits can park in any blue or green lot until Aug. 8, when they have to get a new permit that will be good for the academic year. In a tweet, Parking and Transportation said that permits for the fall 2016 semester will be available in August.

Current rules state that students must park in a lot corresponding to the color of their permit, and that all cars must be parked head in.

All rules in red parking lots still apply. The department requires students without valid permits to park in a designated visitor area and pay the collection fee from parking meters.
