The Oakland University Police Department wants to help you hit the reset button on your parking violations. Starting today until Friday, April 20, late fees for OUPD parking tickets received Jan. 1, 2017, through March 9, 2018, are waived.

Tickets can be paid at original fees in person only at the Parking Enforcement window from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Police and Support Services Building. No online payments will be accepted.

As parking availability continues to improve, the amnesty week initiative aims to give everyone a chance for a clean slate, says chief operating officer Scott Kunselman.

“We went through a period of time where we were truly operating with demand beyond our parking capacity and it only seems fair to reach back and eliminate any additional penalties from that time frame," explains Kunselman. “Now, with additional parking in place I have asked my whole team to remain focused on support of our strategic objectives, and sending students to collection agency for parking tickets would add another barrier to their success.”

He adds, “I hope this helps indicate that we are truly concerned about eliminating burdens to our students lives.”

According to OUPD chief Mark Gordon, there are approximately 857 unpaid citations issued between January 1, 2017, and March 20, 2018.

“We would like to clear up as many unpaid citations as possible with this program,” he says. “This will give those affected a new, clean start to parking on campus.”

Visit the Parking Enforcement window in the Police & Support Services Building at 201 Meadow Brook Road to make your payment today. Still have questions? Call Parking Services at 248-370-2826.
