Vehicle Decals and Guest Parking:

  • When your vehicle is registered, you will be given a parking decal to display on your vehicle.

If your vehicle has a rear defroster, it is acceptable to place the decal on the passenger side back door window.
  • A parking boot will be placed on your vehicle to immobilize your vehicle if your vehicle is parked on Campus without a CURRENT MBC parking decal being properly displayed, if you receive 5 or more tickets during the semester or if you have received 3 tickets for having an unregistered vehicle. An additional fee of $25.00 will be charged to remove the parking boot and all outstanding tickets MUST be paid in order for the parking boot to be removed. The boot will be removed during the hours of 8am – 10pm. All fines are to be paid in the Security Office.
  • Should you have a guest visiting during daytime hours or a guest for overnight, they are required to obtain a temporary parking pass from the Security Office. The pass is to be placed on the dashboard, so that it is visible from the outside. There is no fee for the temporary pass. Students are responsible for their guests and any tickets that they may receive.
  • Temporary guest passes are not valid in Skyline I, Spencer or any Faculty/Staff Parking lots.
