The laws which govern the operation of vehicles in the state of Florida apply to all students at Barry University. Parking on the Barry University campus is a privilege, not a right, and is available to persons driving on campus solely under the rules and regulations prescribed within. Parking and traffic regulations are provided in the Student Union Office, Landon 103. All vehicles, motorcycles or scooters driven to the campus must be registered with the Student Union Office. Traffic and parking regulations are distributed when parking decals for the academic year are issued (usually in September or January).
The Director of Public Safety may exclude or remove from the campus any vehicle that is: used as an instrument in a crime; mechanically unfit; being operated by a person under the influence of intoxicants or drugs; suspected of being stolen; abandoned; not registered with the Public Safety Department; persistently in violation of Barry University parking and/or traffic regulations; or as deemed necessary by the Director of Public Safety in order to maintain law and order on the campus.
Registration of a vehicle
All students shall register their motor vehicle within five (5) school days after the beginning of each semester if not already registered. At the time of registration, a valid state vehicle registration and Barry University student ID must be presented.
There is no charge for the Barry University parking decal. All faculty/staff and registered students may obtain a decal for FREE. Barry University parking decals are not transferable and must be used by the person and on the vehicle in which they're registered. Parking Decals must be affixed to the front windshield driver side bottom and be clearly visible at all times. If this is not possible, other arrangements must be made with an authorized Public Safety official in Landon Student Union, Suite 101. Failure to properly display Barry University parking decals as provided herein shall constitute failure to register a motor vehicle.
Bicycles are permitted and must be kept in the racks provided throughout the campus. Bicycle registration is provided by the Miami Shores Police Department. They can be reached at 305-759-2568.
Thefts or damage should be reported to the Department of Public Safety, Landon Student Union Room 101.

Repeat offenders can be referred to the appropriate administrative officer for further disciplinary action.
Citations are payable at the Cashier Business Office, located in Farrell Hall, Suite 110.
