If drivers choose to utilize the campus grounds to go for a walk, or move to any of the covered outdoor spaces, then they will need to purchase a day pass prior to leaving their vehicle. Vehicles need to be parked in marked parking spaces; vehicles stopped in the roadway in front of buildings may be cited.
