Parking Tickets

Tickets issued by UMD Parking or UMD Police come in an orange envelope.

An appeal to the decision on a contested ticket may be made in writing by submitting a completed Parking Appeals Form to Parking Services. An appeal of a parking citation requires a $5.00 appeals fee due upon completion of the appeals process. All appeals are heard by the Parking Appeals Board consisting of UMD staff, faculty, and students. The decision of the Parking Appeals Board is final and concludes the appeals process.

Failure to respond to the ticket will cause late fees to be added:

  • If not paid within 10 days, a $5.00 late fee will be added.
  • If not paid within 20 days after late notice date, an additional $40.00 late fee will be added.

Pay by Cash, Check, or Money Order

Tickets payments may be made by cash, check, or money order. There is no receipt of payment when tickets are paid with cash. Please make checks out to UMD Parking or UMD Police as stated on the ticket. To pay by cash or check, either drop off the payment in the drop box slot outside the Parking Services office at 245 KPlz or mail it to:

Ride the DTA

Riding the Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) buses is a great alternative, since parking at UMD is limited for both on-campus residents and commuters. The DTA serves the UMD campus and surrounding areas. Students, faculty, and staff who present their U-Card can ride the DTA buses for free anywhere and anytime the buses run. Bus schedules and other information can be found online at: http://www.duluthtransit.com.

If you do not absolutely need a car, we encourage you to not bring one to campus. Why bother with parking hassles, tickets, and the scraping of ice and snow when you can ride the DTA for free?
