Policy Contact: Vice President, Administrative Services


Under RCW 28B.50.140(10), the board of trustees of Bellevue College has the authority to establish rules and regulations for pedestrian and vehicular traffic over property owned, operated, or maintained by the college district.

Bellevue College manages parking and traffic to assure a safe, accessible and financially and environmentally sustainable learning, working and living environment. Bellevue College supports commute trip reduction as a cost effective method to provide adequate parking.

No person shall park or leave any vehicle, whether attended or unattended, upon the campus of Bellevue College without a valid permit or authorization.

Parking is provided as a service to the students, faculty and staff without liability for damage or loss incurred. The issuance of a parking permit does not guarantee the availability of a parking space.

Drivers of vehicles shall obey the signs, barricades, structures, markings, and directions erected. Drivers shall also comply with the directions given them by a public safety officer or other public safety personnel controlling and regulating traffic or parking.

No person shall move, deface, or in any way change a permit, sign, barricade, structure, marking, or direction so placed, or previously placed, for the purpose of regulating traffic or parking.

Upon probable cause to believe that a violation of these rules and regulations has occurred, the vice president of administrative services and his or her designees may issue citations. If any citation remains unpaid Bellevue College may take additional actions.


Valid Permit

  • A current student of faculty/staff permit; or
