Neighborhood Parking

Colorado College is dedicated to maintaining a good relationship with our surrounding neighbors by fostering civil and polite interaction. One point of contention in this relationship has been college community members parking their vehicles in the surrounding neighborhoods. To this effect, Colorado College students, faculty and staff are discouraged from parking their vehicles in the neighborhoods surrounding campus while on college business. Colorado College defines the surrounding neighborhood as including the following areas:

  • The 1200N block of Wood Avenue.
  • The 1200N block of Cascade Avenue.
  • The 1200N block of Tejon Street.
  • The 00W block of San Miguel Street.
  • The 00E block of San Miguel Street.
  • The 300E block of San Rafael Street.
  • The 300E block of Yampa St.

The Colorado Springs Municipal Code Regulation concerning parking indicates that any car parked on a city street must move every 72 hours or it may be considered as abandoned and impounded by the city. To prevent this from happening, Campus Safety personnel routinely check the streets listed above and take note of non-neighbor vehicles. If you choose to park in the areas indicated above, the following will occur:

If your vehicle is reported parked off-campus in the surrounding neighborhood, a warning flyer will be placed on the vehicle, the vehicle information will be recorded, and an e-mail will be sent to the registered owner.
