Where do I park?

Employees must park only where the space or curb is red and need an employee permit.

Visitors can park in white visitor spaces or gray student spaces but must have a visitor permit.

Students must park in gray or unpainted spaces. Commuters need a commuter decal and must park only in their zones (i.e. not in a lot directly connected to a residence hall, family housing, or La Maison du Bayou). Residents need a residential decal and can only park in the lots or street spaces next to a campus residence.

Employees and students are never considered a visitor and cannot park in white visitor spaces.

Handicap spaces are designated with blue paint. Anyone parked in a handicap zone must display a valid Nicholls permit and either a current DMV hang-tag or an official handicap license plate.


Students and employees should use the Parking Permit Application Form to apply for annual parking permits when available.

Disagree with your citation?

Anyone who has received a parking or traffic citation who believes the citation is unwarranted according to the parking guidelines may appeal the citation online.

Appeals must be received prior to the due date on the citation.

The Nicholls State University community looks forward to seeing you around campus. However, we also want to make sure you don’t go home with a parking ticket.

The Office of Parking Services issues decals, parking permits and visitor passes. It is also responsible for ticketing illegally parked vehicles and administering the citation appeals process.

Everyone who parks on the Nicholls campus is required to get a parking permit. Student, faculty/staff and visitor permits can be obtained from the Office of Parking Services located at University Police in Calecas Hall.

Don’t take any chances. Any vehicle without a parking permit properly displayed may receive a parking ticket of $20 for each violation.
