Load/Unload
Service/Repair and
State Vehicle Spaces

LOAD AND UNLOAD SPACES Loading and unloading is permitted only in designated areas and in accordance with the signing of that space. Prohibited and restricted areas, disabled spaces, fire lanes, and meters are not designated for loading and unloading. Any vehicle loading or unloading in these areas is subject to citation, fine, immobilization, and/or towing, at owner’s risk and expense.

Use of Load/Unload Spaces A valid George Mason University permit must be displayed in order to park in a load/unload space. Blinkers or flashers must be activated when vehicles are parked in load/unload zones. Load/unload parking is limited to thirty minutes, unless Parking Services grants an exception for special circumstances or different time restriction is posted. Vehicles exceeding the posted 30-minute time limit are subject to citation and fine.

Loading and Unloading When No Designated Space Exists Under certain circumstances, close-up building access may be required for load/unload purposes where no space has been designated. In these instances the individual must contact Parking Services to obtain permission and direction to ensure that campus safety measures are met and that Parking Services can readily contact the individuals in the event the vehicle must be moved for emergency equipment. All other load/unload regulations apply as stated above.

SERVICE AND REPAIR SPACES Service and Repair spaces are reserved for vehicles displaying valid Service and Repair permits. University vehicles with state license plates may also park in Service and Repair spaces without displaying a Service and Repair permit.
