Parking Tickets

The purpose of regulating parking and traffic on campus is to create a safe and orderly environment for pedestrians and motor vehicles.  All persons operating a motor vehicle on campus are responsible for complying with applicable parking and traffic laws, orders and regulations.

The enforcement of parking and traffic regulations is a responsibility of the SUNY Geneseo University Police Department.
