Parking News

Parking citation follow-up notices now being issued electronically

Beginning January 13, 2014 all follow-up notices for parking citations that have been issued to students, faculty and staff will be sent electronically to their Purdue email accounts. Original citations will continue to be issued as paper tickets, typically placed on a vehicle’s windshield.

The emails will be issued by Parking Facilities (parking@purdue.edu), and the body of the emails will contain contact information for the Parking Facilities office. The follow-up notices will be attachments and will contain information regarding the citation, amount due and payment due date.

Previously, follow-up notices were sent via campus or U.S. Postal Service mail. Visitors who receive a parking citation while on campus will continue to have follow-up notices mailed to their physical address.

All follow-up notices are sent one time only and are emailed/mailed every Friday.

Please contact Parking Facilities at (765) 494-9497 with any questions on this process or to confirm the validity of a citation follow-up notice email.
