Parking Guidelines & Traffic Policies

Parking at the Westchester Campuses

Our beautiful, scenic campus has limited parking. Because of this it is a Walking Campus. While on campus cars should be parked in their designated parking lots at all times.

A valid Pace ID and vehicle registration is needed when registering a vehicle for use on campus. The decal holder is responsible for the vehicle operation and any fines incurred while vehicle is on campus.
