Parking Guidelines

For 2019-2020, Fordham Westchester will use a parking hangtag for its students, faculty, and staff. 

When applying for the Westchester campus parking hangtag, all new and returning students, faculty, and staff must complete a Parking Application form online on my.fordham.edu. The parking pass for Westchester is a hanging tag that must be visibly displayed in the vehicle at all times while parked in the Westchester parking lot. All new and returning students, faculty, and staff must present their Fordham ID along with the receipt of online purchase. 

Fordham passes will be available at the Westchester Public Safety Office (Room 143). The Public Safety Office will issue a Fordham parking hangtag, which is to be placed ONLY on the rear view mirror. If a vehicle does not have a Fordham pass affixed, the vehicle WILL NOT be permitted to make use of the parking facilities.  Students/faculty assigned to our Westchester campus may park at Rose Hill to use the Walsh Family Library at no additional cost, and must have the hangtag visible when entering the Rose Hill campus and while parked in the garage.

Campus parking cannot be guaranteed and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Fees for the 2019-2020 year are $190.00. 

The Westchester Campus Fordham University Public Safety staff is responsible for safety and control of Campus traffic. Kindly comply with all traffic signs and the directives of the sPublic Safety supervisor on duty. To contact the Public Safety Office, please call (914) 367-3001 or go to Room 143.

The University is not liable for personal injury, damage to vehicles, vandalism, or theft of a vehicle or its contents. Lock all valuables out of sight, preferably in the trunk of the car, and lock all car doors. There is no University insurance coverage for any of the aforementioned hazards.

To use the parking facilities, except as a visitor, a vehicle must be registered and parking fees must be paid. The full fee must be paid regardless of the month that the vehicle is registered.

The decal will be issued after compliance with the requirements listed above. If a vehicle does not have a decal affixed, the vehicle WILL NOT be permitted to make use of the parking facilities. Students/Faculty assigned to our Westchester campus may park at Rose Hill to use the Walsh Family Library at no additional charge.
