Appeal a Parking Citation

Any vehicle owner/operator receiving a parking violation notice may contest that violation if there are grounds for appeal. Appeals of violation notices must be submitted to the University Parking Appeals Committee (in writing) or online at within seven calendar days of the violation. Appeals received after seven calendar days will be denied. Lack of knowledge of regulations does not constitute valid grounds for appeal.

Appeals for violations are heard by the University Parking Appeals Committee. The appellant will be notified of the committee’s decision in writing after the appeal hearing.

The committee’s decision will be reached on the merits of the submitted written appeal and with regard to Washington University parking regulations. Consideration will also be given to the appellant’s history with Washington University Parking and Transportation. The decision of the University Parking Appeals Committee is final.
