Parking on Campus

Hilbert assumes no responsibility for damage to or loss of any vehicle or its contents at any time that it is operated or parked on campus.

A person who registers a vehicle is responsible for assuring the vehicle is operated to conform with all campus regulations regardless of who drives the vehicle.

Weather conditions do not affect the applicability of enforcement of these regulations. These regulations apply all year long, including academic breaks.

Vehicle Registration
All vehicles operated by Hilbert students, faculty and staff must be registered with campus safety and have a valid parking permit properly displayed to park on campus. Parking permits have an expiration date.

To register a vehicle, go to:
