Parking & Traffic Regulations

The Augustana University campus is centrally located in Sioux Falls within walking or biking distance of banks, grocery stores, restaurants and other common destinations. Sioux Area Metro (SAM) transit system also has a bus stop located on the west side of campus near the intersection of Grange Avenue and Commons Drive. So, while having a car can be helpful for getting around, it is not necessary to get places.

All motor vehicles parked on Augustana property by students, faculty and staff must be registered officially with the university. Registration of vehicles is accomplished on-line through your portal prior to each academic year. Vehicles acquired at times other than the normal registration period may be registered at the Nelson Service Center.

NOTICE: If for any reason you need to leave your car on campus for unusual circumstances please call Campus Safety at 605.274.4014. Campus Safety can advise you of the appropriate parking lot to leave your vehicle.

The university will ticket and tow all "non-permit" vehicles parked illegally in the university lots to protect space for vehicles with permits. The university may tow any vehicle found to be abandoned or parked in a non-designated lot.

Any vehicle left on campus for an extended period (including Thanksgiving, Christmas or January Interim vacations) must be registered with Campus Safety. Students, faculty or staff leaving a vehicle for a duration during these times must contact the Department of Campus Safety at 605.274.4014 to provide vehicle information and receive information about where to park during that duration. All parking lots will be subject to plowing during breaks and holidays. A parking area will be designated for vehicles to be left over the break/holiday.
