Parking on Daytona State property is on a first-come, first-served basis. All vehicles must display a valid Daytona State parking decal or metal employee parking tag. The College strives to provide on campus parking for all students, staff, faculty and visitors. Students may park in any available space on campus (in accordance with local and state regulations). Daytona State carries no insurance for privately owned vehicles; therefore, all students, staff, faculty and visitors park at their own risk. To insure effective utilization of parking areas, the following parking regulations will be enforced.
Parking citations will be issued by Daytona State Campus Safety Officers for violation of these regulations. Failure to pay citations can result in records, diplomas and certificates being held and a freeze on further registration.
For the Daytona Campus, all parking decals will be handed out in Campus Safety in building 540. Students may get their parking decal when obtaining their student ID card. To obtain a student ID Card or parking decal students need to show a current class schedule and a valid photo identification. Decals should be placed on the outside of the rear window on the driver's side of the vehicle. All individuals who park on campus are required to obtain and display a current and valid parking decal or metal employee tag. This includes all students, faculty, administrators, employees, visitors, consultants, vendors, and other members of the Daytona State community regardless of their classification or academic standing. The parking decal shall be placed outside the rear window, bottom left side.
