PARKING

PARKING PERMITS

All vehicles parking on the college’s property are required to display a valid parking permit. Student permits must be paid for on-line via Student Self-Service and picked up from Bursar’s Office, located on the first floor of the Jefferson Educational Center (JEC). You must have paid
your tuition and charges in total, have a valid third party (such as Financial Aid) paying your tuition/charges, or be participating in the Payment Plan to receive your permit. As a registered student, your permit allows you to park in the student lots free of charge for college related activities.

VISITOR PARKING

Visitor parking is located off of Second Street at the Jefferson Educational Center Garage. There is a 30-minute limit.

Disabled parking is available in the main student lot. A valid, state issued disabled permit registered to the student is required, as well as a Jefferson Disabled permit.

SAFETY TIPS

Being on a college campus is fun but it is important to prevent yourself from becoming more vulnerable than necessary or getting into potentially harmful situations. The following tips can help you avoid possible dangers.

  1. Your personal safety is of the utmost importance. Do not allow a stranger to make you
    feel guilty about taking safety precautions or intimidate you into compromising your safety.
  2. Make sure to keep track of your keys and personal belongings.
  3. If you have a car, lock it.
  4. If you have a bike, properly secure it. Secure bikes through the wheel and frame with a high quality lock; the U-Lock is recommended.
  5. Watch your belongings. Never leave items like your backpack, laptop or cell phone unattended even if it is just for a minute. Make it a habit to take these items with you.
  6. Walk with a friend when possible arriving or leaving campus when it is late. There is safety in numbers. If you are alone call campus safety for an escort (502.213.7777).
  7. Know the location of the nearest emergency phones on campus. There are a number of red phones located throughout our campuses.
  8. If you see something, say something. If something looks suspicious or dangerous, please contact the Campus Safety Department immediately at 502.213.7777.  If you feel that your safety or that of another is in immediate danger, call 911 then call Campus Safety Department (502.213.7777).
  9. Stay alert! Pay attention to what is going on around you. Don’t be distracted by usage of cell phones or other mobile devices. Your ears and eyes are your best defense to avoid being taken by surprise.
