All motor vehicles operated on campus must be registered with the Department of Transportation Services, in the Transportation Services menu in self-service Banner at https://portal.samford.edu. The appropriate vehicle registration decal shall be affixed to the inside front left corner of the windshield, on the driver’s side. Decals will be affixed by the adhesive on the decal and may not be affixed with tape or any other temporary means. No more than one current decal shall be affixed to any vehicle. The method of affixing decals on motorcycles will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Providing false information concerning the registration of a vehicle will subject the violator to disciplinary action.
All students are required to register their driving status in Banner, regardless of their possession or operation of a vehicle on campus. If a student is a Non-Driver, he or she is required to submit their status as a Non-Driver in the Transportation Services menu in self-service Banner at https://portal.samford.edu. A Non-Driver is identified as a current student, enrolled in classes, who is not in possession of a vehicle on campus, and does not drive a vehicle on campus. This includes borrowing, and sharing of vehicles. If a student is borrowing or sharing a vehicle with another person, he/she is not considered a Non-Driver.
Student decals cost $20.00 each for annual use. Replacement or additional decals cost $5.00 each. Decals are not pro-rated, and are not refundable once they have been signed out and received. Charges will be placed on the student’s account immediately upon registration in
the student’s Self Service Banner account. All vehicle registration decals expire yearly on August 31st.
Between the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, parking by students is permitted only in the specific decal color zone.

The specific decal color zones are determined according to the student’s housing assignment.
