Campus Safety’s number one priority is the safety and well- being of our campus community. We are located 512 Henderson Street. Campus Safety is under the division of Student Affairs. We provide 24 –hour coverage seven days a week. Officers’ duties consist of patrolling the entire campus, securing buildings and property, issuing citations and parking regulations, working special events and responding to calls for assistance, and providing educational seminars and events.
Every effort is made to keep each location a safe place for students to study, work, and live. Questions and concerns should be referred to the Campus Safety Office of Student Affairs. A Campus Safety Officer is on duty 24 hours a day at the Mount Olive location to ensure the safety of the university campus. Any condition that could endanger the welfare of students should be reported immediately to the appropriate authority (a Campus Safety Officer or other Student Affairs staff member).
These traffic and parking regulations, authorized by the Executive Council, are intended to facilitate the safe and orderly conduct of University business, to provide parking services in support of these functions within the limits of available space, and to maintain the flow of traffic on our campus. These regulations are also designed to enhance the safety of our campus, by identifying visiting vehicles. Enforcement of these regulations is necessary to achieve these goals and to comply with fire codes.
All vehicles parking at the Mount Olive location must display a current registration permit or pass displayed in the bottom left corner of the automobile’s rear window or on the left side of the rear bumper.Parking permits are free. Faculty/Staff may obtain permits at the Human Resource Office and students may obtain permits at the Campus Safety or Student Affairs Office, for up to two vehicles. The fine for failing to register a vehicle is $30.00. Parking permits are valid from August 1 to July 30. A permit does not guarantee a parking space.
Parked vehicles should be kept locked at all times. The University is not responsible for the theft of or damage to the vehicle or any personal property left in the vehicle. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that adequate liability coverage is in effect on the vehicle and its contents at all times.
Please refer to the following chart for the lot in which you are authorized to park. Parking outside your authorized area in other than the designated short term spaces will result in a parking fine:
Resident students must park their vehicles at their residence hall or at the Murphy Center/Kornegay Arena Parking lot ONLY. Resident students parking at the Poole, Henderson, and Communications/Chapel, Raper or Laughinghouse parking lots will be issued a citation for doing so.

Any student who brings an unregistered car on campus for a short period of time (less than two weeks) must secure a Temporary Parking Permit from the Campus Safety Office or the Student Affairs Office. If a temporary permit is needed for a longer period of time, they may be obtained as stated above. A guest staying overnight in a residence hall must also obtain a Temporary Parking Permit.
The yellow curbing indicates a NO PARKING ZONE mandated by the local Fire Marshall. Parking in these areas is a violation as well as unsafe for both your vehicle and for emergency vehicles. Although maintenance employees and contractors are allowed to park on the grass or sidewalks while conducting repairs to University facilities, no other vehicles may be so parked.

Vehicles may be towed at the owner’s expense for the following reasons: unregistered or improperly parked vehicles, vehicles which impede the safe and efficient flow of traffic, vehicles receiving three or more citations.Disabled vehicles should be repaired or removed from campus as soon as possible.
