Parking is permitted on marked paved or graveled areas only. Parking in restricted areas, in front of dumpsters, in fire lanes, or on the grass is strictly prohibited. Vehicles parked in fire lanes, other unauthorized places, or vehicles with repetitive violations may be subject to towing or impoundment at the owners expense. Ticketing will occur in the manner listed below. Disabled vehicles are prohibited on the campus of Cumberland University. Any vehicle which is deemed disabled, left unattended/parked in the same location for an extended period, or whose owner is unresponsive to repeated citations will be considered abandoned and will be cited, impounded, and/or towed at the owner's expense.
