Parking waiver form information

Monday, June 24th, 2019

Starting July 1, 2019, George Fox students who do not plan to bring a vehicle to campus can request an exemption from being automatically charged the parking permit fee by completing this parking waiver form. Please read the waiver form thoroughly as you fill it out.

By signing this form you agree that you will not bring a vehicle and park on George Fox’s Newberg campus or the surrounding Good Neighbor areas (as specified in the parking policies) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

If your vehicle is found parked on campus during these times, the following will occur:

  • You will be automatically issued and charged for a parking permit and be fined an additional $75 for parking an unregistered vehicle.
  • You will be required to pick up the permit from Campus Public Safety and an officer will assist you in the proper placement of the permit.
  • Note: There may be additional fines for any other violations according to the parking policies of the university.

If you are doing an off-campus internship (clinical, student teaching, etc.) which limits your time on campus to less than two hours during normal business hours, or are taking 4 or fewer credit hours in a semester, you may be eligible for this waiver. However, you must obtain a special temporary permit from Campus Public Safety and display it appropriately to avoid the above-listed sanctions.

Important info about vehicle registration

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

Students: Following are the dates when the vehicle registration portal will open:

  • July 1: All commuters and graduate students only
  • July 8: Seniors
  • July 15: Juniors
  • July 22: Sophomores

For incoming freshmen and transfer students, the application for a parking permit will open up on July 1 on the Campus Public Safety website. Approved residential applicants will then be given instructions on how to register for a permit.

Commuters and graduate students may register only one vehicle on MyGFU, and if they have a second family-owned vehicle they switch in-between, that vehicle must be registered in the Campus Public Safety office. This option is only for a second family-owned vehicle, not a roommate’s, girlfriend’s or boyfriend’s vehicle, etc.

Commuter and graduate parking permits are not limited, but residential permits are. Please register when the registration portal opens up for your class so as to not miss out on a permit.

Questions that aren’t answered on our website? Out-of-the-box vehicle situation? Call 503-554-2090 during business hours, or write Elrike Shaw at eshaw@georgefox.edu.

Employees: Be sure to pass this information along to students you know.
