Appeals

The Rollins College Parking Appeals Committee, which is comprised of students and members of the Campus Safety Department, view appeals 3 times a week during the Fall and Spring terms, with the exception of finals week and holiday periods. Students will receive written notification of the decision within five to ten business days via e-mail.

Any student who believes his or her vehicle has been ticketed on the basis of error or without cause may appeal. All appeals must be made within 14 calendar days of the date appearing on the citation. Appeals can be made using the online traffic appeal form or you can visit the Campus Safety office and submit the appeal in writing. Failure to submit an appeal within the 14 calendar days forfeits your right to appeal the citation.

During the summer, the shift supervisors in Campus Safety act as the appeals committee and will review all appeals. Students wishing to appeal tickets may use the online traffic appeal form or they can submit a written appeal form in the Campus Safety office.

The decision of the Rollins College Parking Appeals Committee and/ or the Director of Campus Safety is final and binding.


**Immobilization citations cannot be appealed**

Parking and Traffic Violations

Vehicles parked illegally will be ticketed by Campus Safety. In addition, vehicles parked in fire zones or handicap spaces may be cited and/or towed by Winter Park Police Department. The person who registers the vehicle on campus is held accountable for any violation involving the vehicle. The owner is also responsible for any violations incurred by other drivers of the registered vehicle. Parking and traffic fines must be paid prior to release of school records, diplomas, certificates and before a student can register for classes or activate pre-registration schedules.

Any person who provides false information on the registration form may be subject to disciplinary action. In addition, current and/ or future parking privileges may be suspended or revoked. Please see, Code of Community Standards--Falsification.

Vehicles may not be left on Rollins College property, to include the parking garage, during the summer months without prior approval of the Department of Campus Safety.

At no time is parking allowed in tenant or reserved space in the parking garage.

All those who violate parking or traffic regulations on campus are subject to the following citations:

Vehicle Immobalization & Towing

Vehicle Immobilization

The Campus Safety Department utilizes immobilization devices (boots) to aid with the enforcement of college parking policies. Your vehicle may be immobilized if you have accumulated three or more citations, paid, unpaid or appealed.

After your second citation on an unregistered vehicle and third citation on a registered vehicle, the vehicle will be immobilized every time they are found in violation of traffic or parking policies. A vehicle will remain immobilized until the appropriate fine is paid or 5 calendar days pass. On the 5th calendar day, the vehicle will be towed from campus.

If your vehicle is immobilized, all citations owed, plus an immobilization fee must be paid before the immobilizer is removed.

Schedule of immobilization fees:

  • First Immobilization $ 60.00
  • Second Immobilization $ 85.00
  • Third Immobilization $110.00
  • Each subsequent Immobilization $110.00

Once a vehicle has been immobilized, do not attempt to move the vehicle or severe damage may occur. Tampering with or removal of an immobilizer may result in an immediate revocation of parking privileges and an additional fine of $200.00. Theft of an immobilizer is a felony and could result in criminal prosecution. A vehicle may be immobilized on Rollins College property, at the discretion of the Director, due to public safety concerns.

Vehicle Towing

Vehicles may be towed from Rollins College property for one or more of the following reasons;
  • The vehicle is operated by an individual whose campus parking privileges have been revoked.
  • The vehicle has been issued three or more parking citations.
  • The vehicle is displaying a forged, altered or unauthorized parking permit/ decal.
  • The vehicle is abandoned, inoperable or derelict.
  • The vehicle is parked in a driveway or travel lane in a manner that impedes vehicular traffic flow, constitutes a traffic hazard or blocks the operation of/ access by emergency vehicles.
