Disabled Parking 

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. To obtain a Jefferson Community & Technical College parking permit with a disabled sticker, you will need to present a current state-issued disability credential (i.e. Disabled Placard Receipt) to the Bursar’s Office for verification.

Illegally Parked Vehicles

The following vehicular violations are subject to citation, fine, booting, and/or towing:

  • Not displaying a valid permit or in an area where permit is not valid.
  • In a "No Parking" area
  • In a disabled space without the proper permit and/or parked blocking a disabled access
  • Blocking other cars, fire lanes, fire exits, doorways, access to trash dumpsters, or within 15 feet of a fire hydrant 
  • In loading zones unless actually loading. Flashers must be on.

You must display a valid current permit. It must be clearly visible; placed on the vehicle dashboard or hanging from the rearview mirror. The permit number must face the windshield. Failure to follow these steps could result in a ticket or boot which will immobilize your vehicle and require immediate payment. If a boot is placed on your car this cannot be appealed and must be paid immediately.

If you would like to appeal a fine/ticket given by the college, you must talk to security which is on the 1st floor of the Hartford building.

Tickets/Fines must be paid at the Bursar/Cashier Office. The Bursar’s office does not handle ticket appeals.
