Westminster College is committed to reducing valley air pollution, becoming a carbon-neutral institution, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The no idling policy aims to eliminate all unnecessary idling by vehicles on campus. Idling for more than 10 seconds uses more fuel than restarting your vehicle.

It is the responsibility of all who operate a gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicle on the Westminster College campus to obey the no idling policy. No gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicles will be allowed to idle on campus for more than 1 minute under normal weather conditions. The exception to normal conditions is extreme cold or hot weather. Vehicles should never be left running while unattended.

This policy applies to:

  • Buses transporting students or athletes to athletic events
  • Buses contracted to transport students to special college-sponsored events
  • Delivery vehicles
  • Contractor vehicles
  • Faculty, staff, and students’ personal vehicles
  • Vehicles owned by Westminster College

Vehicle operators who do not follow the no idle policy will be cited.

The commuter permit is for students who attend classes before 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and do not park on campus overnight. Commuter permits are not valid at the Draw.

If you’re visiting campus for a conference or workshop, obtain a parking permit from the event organizer and park in a regular parking space on campus.

Your Westminster on the Draw parking permit allows you to park in the reserved residents’ area on the Draw. Residents are only permitted to park in the reserved spaces behind the parking gates located on level 4A. Use your Westminster ID card to enter and exit the parking area. Vehicles parked behind the gates of the reserved residential parking area that do not display a valid permit will be cited, booted, or towed at the owner’s expense.

If all spaces behind the parking gates are used, parking spots will be assigned outside of the gates by the property owner. Only students assigned to a space outside the gates may park there. Anyone parking in a space not assigned to them will be cited or towed.

Your Draw pass also allows you to park in any campus lot during the day. It does not permit you to park in the general parking or retail parking areas at the Draw. Vehicles parked in any spaces outside the designated area in the Draw parking structure will be cited, booted, or towed at the owner’s expense.

Faculty, staff, and students attending classes, events, or working on the academic level of the Draw must display a valid Westminster parking permit. Vehicles without a valid permit will be cited, booted, or towed.

The college leases parking spaces for Westminster on the Draw residents from the property owner, who sets the parking permit rates.
