As of Monday, Sept. 15 parking enforcement began at NMC in all parking lots. The Traverse City Police Department has passed along some information for everyone on how to avoid parking tickets on campus by having your parking sticker displayed correctly:
- Place your sticker in the bottom left hand corner of your windshield.
- Place your sticker right side up. An upside-down sticker will be considered invalid.
- Be sure that the expiration date on your sticker can be seen from the outside of your vehicle. (Some vehicles have a tint on the edges of their windshield, be sure your sticker is not behind a tint, as it will make it difficult to see from the outside.) When it doubt, get out of your vehicle and be sure you can see the entire sticker from the outside.
If you have any questions about parking enforcement on campus please call (231) 995-1111. (more…)

To better accommodate the needs of NMC campus tour participants, the Conifer parking lot on the west side of West Hall has been converted to a gated lot.
A significant increase in the number of campus visits during the last academic year as well as the time limits on metered visitor parking slots prompted the change. Now campus tour participants, who will access the lot via a code provided by NMC, will be assured of a secure parking place for the duration of their visit.
NMC employees and students will not have access to the Conifer lot.
