All Heidelberg students must register their vehicles annually within the first five days of their first class. Faculty and staff must register their vehicles one time upon being hired. Failure to register a vehicle will result in a $50.00 fine and/or disciplinary action. Vehicle registration is completed by logging on to OASIS and following the instructions. Upon completion of the registration, the vehicle hanger can be acquired at the Business Office by showing your student/faculty ID.
The issued parking hanger is to be hung on the inside rearview mirror so the numbers are visible from the outside of the vehicle. If the hanger will not fit on the mirror, hang it from a string by punching holes in the hanger. The owner of the car is responsible for placing the hanger so it can be read from outside the vehicle.
All overnight visitors to the campus must obtain a yellow visitor’s parking pass. The visitor’s pass is free of charge and should be placed on the dash in front of the driver so it can be read from outside the vehicle. Please contact the Campus Safety & Security Director’s office (Campus Center 127, 419-448-2211) during regular business hours (Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm) to obtain a visitor’s pass.
