Vehicle Booting


Saint Francis University reserves the right to place a boot on any vehicle parked on any property owned, rented or leased by the University, for the below violations (but are not limited to):

  • Parked in a reserved parking space or parking lot
  • Parked in a marked handicap parking space
  • Along a roadway marked with No Parking signs
  • If University parking and driving privileges have been revoked for any reason
  • If found using a (lost, stolen, altered or counterfeit paring permit)
  • Any unregistered vehicle parked on campus, which the owner cannot be determined

Once a vehicle boot has been placed on a vehicle, a placard will be placed on the left front drivers side window warning the operator damage(s) will occur if the vehicle is moved prior to having the boot removed from the vehicle.

Any person(s) who tampers with or damages a boot will be held responsible for any and all damages to University property, and will be referred to Student Conduct.

If your vehicle has been booted, please take the time to read any warning notices that were applied to your vehicle and take the appropriate corrective action.

There is a $50.00 boot removal fee, which must be paid prior to the boot being removed from the vehicle. This fee will be charged directly to the student, faculty or staff members account for payment. Once payment is added to the account an email will be sent to the email address linked to the vehicle with instructions on how to view or appeal the boot removal fee.

Along with the boot removal fee a University parking ticket will also be issued for the original violation(s).
