Statement of Purpose

This policy delegates the authority of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) to regulate parking to the Parking and Transportation Services Department.


Parking on UNLV’s property is a privilege granted by the university, not an inherent right of any student, faculty, employee, or visitor and can be revoked consistent with the Parking and Transportation Services Department Rules and Procedures.

Parking and Transportation Services establishes, maintains, and enforces rules and procedures that regulate parking on all of UNLV’s campuses. They can be found in the Transportation Services Department Rules and Procedures.


Nevada Revised Statutes grant authority to the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE and the System) Board of Regents (BOR) to govern traffic on the NSHE’s property and state that the regulations have the force and effect of law.[1] In addition, the Nevada Revised Statutes grant authority to the NSHE Board of Regents to prescribe rules for the government of the System.[2] The BOR Handbook grants authority to the president of each institution to establish, approve, and enforce parking and traffic regulations that govern the movement, operation, and parking of motor vehicles on property under the jurisdiction of the institution.[3]

Campus enforcement of parking rules and regulations is managed by the Parking and Transportation Services Department. University Police Services assists Parking and Transportation Services with enforcement as needed. University Police Services has the additional duty of enforcing federal, state, and county laws on UNLV properties, in accordance with the provisions of the Nevada Revised Statutes.4
