LLUH Parking Regulations

 

For the purpose of this document the term LLUH means Loma Linda University Health and its affiliates, this includes but is not limited to LLU, LLUMC, LLUCH, LLUHC, BMC, East Campus, SH, LLUMC-M and LLUSS.

 The grounds and facilities of LLUH are private property. Operating a motor vehicle on the grounds of LLUH is a privilege given by this institution and is not a guaranteed right of employees, faculty, staff, students, or visitors. LLUH recognizes the fact that the use of a vehicle is often necessary for transportation to and from campus and thus provides parking for employees, faculty, staff, students, and visitors. All employees, faculty, staff, and students will be issued a parking permit that will give them the privilege to park in an assigned primary lot when space is available and to park in overflow parking when the primary lot is full.

 Because it is a privilege to operate and park a motor vehicle on the grounds, permission to enter or remain on the grounds may be revoked at any time by LLUH Administration or its authorized agent. LLUH Administration recognizes Loma Linda University Shared Services Department of Parking & Traffic as the authorized agent. Officers of this department are responsible for enforcing all LLUH Traffic and Parking Regulations and all provisions of the California Vehicle Code as they apply on campus.

 In the interest of safe and courteous vehicle operation and in an effort to create and maintain the best possible conditions for those authorized to operate a motor vehicle on the grounds, LLUH has adopted and enforces these regulations.

IT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE DRIVER OF ANY VEHICLE TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THESE REGULATIONS. YOU WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INFRACTION THEREOF.
