The University of North Carolina School of the Arts Department of Police and Public Safety (UNCSADPPS) is responsible for enforcing all parking and traffic laws in accordance with the authority vested in it by the Board of Trustees under North Carolina General Statutes 116.44.4.  Our jurisdiction covers all University owned and leased property including: buildings, parking lots, streets immediately adjoining public streets, and satellite locations.   All drivers are expected to drive with extreme caution while on UNCSA owned or controlled property. UNCSA police officers do enforce traffic regulations.  Please abide by the posted speed limits, honor all pedestrian crosswalks, and come to a full stop at all STOP signs.  At all times obey police officer verbal commands and traffic direction.  


Parking for Students, Faculty and Staff


All students, faculty, and staff who park on UNC School of the Arts property must display a valid parking decal or temporary permit, appropriately placed, on the vehicle being parked.  This includes Center Stage.

Decals shall be clearly visible and affixed to the exterior of the rear windshield on the passenger side of the vehicle.  Motorcycles shall place the decal on the rear fender. 

Any decal holders who are temporarily driving a different vehicle are required to get a temporary parking permit (at no cost) from the UNCSA Department of Police and Public Safety.

Initial decals, replacement decals, and temporary permits are all issued by the UNCSA Department of Police and Public Safety which is located in the Police Department across the street from the Drama Gym.  All vehicles are required to have the legal minimum NC liability insurance coverage, even if the vehicle is registered in another state.
