Parking and Traffic

All drivers are expected to drive carefully, courteously, and to obey all state and College traffic regulations while on the campus. These include:

  • Observing a speed limit not to exceed 5 miles per hour in campus parking lot areas and the posted speed limit on College Drive.
  • Obeying rules regarding "Handicapped Only" parking. These spaces are to be used by persons who display a properly handicap registered vehicle deemed by the state of North Carolina.

College parking fines are $5 and may be paid in the Business Office, which is located in Room 125 of the Patterson Building. If you believe you have received a parking ticket in error, you may contact Becky Wall, Chief Financial Officer, to appeal or the Director of Security. Becky Wall can be located in Room 103 of the Patterson Building or by telephone at (704) 991-0176. The Security Director may located in Room 231C of the Patterson Building or by telephone at (704) 991-0119.

The College does not guarantee the safety of parked vehicles or their contents and is not responsible for the loss of or damage to any parked automobile or its contents.

When convenient to do so, campus officers will assist with jump-starting vehicle batteries. Due to liability issues, officers do not unlock car doors.
