Parking & Transportation

Parking is open and free to all students, employees and visitors at all campus locations. HCTC provides designated parking spaces for disability parking. These parking spaces are specifically designated for use by those who have permanent or temporary physical impairments that substantially limit mobility. Use of these spaces requires a state issued tag/license plate.

HCTC parking areas are monitored by local law enforcement. If students are parked in the accessible parking areas without displaying a state issued tag they can receive a ticket from local law enforcement.

Students are encouraged to park in appropriately designated areas. Parking outside of parking lines, in fire lanes or double parking will result in a ticket from local law enforcement.

Parking Guidelines

Parking is prohibited in any area designated as a "no parking" area by sign or curb/space painting. Parking on grass is strictly prohibited and no vehicle may occupy more than one space.
