FIU Parking enforces parking infractions using warnings, citations, fines, vehicle immobilization, towing and any other means. By registering your vehicle with FIU Parking, you assume responsibility for all citations issued to your vehicle. If you have received a parking citation and choose not to contest or appeal, you may pay online or in person at your nearest FIU Parking office. However, if you received a citation and believe the citation is unwarranted, you may appeal the citation.
Citations and Appeals
If you have been issued a citation, you have 10 business days from the date of issuance to respond to the citation either by paying the fine or by filing an appeal. You can make the payment online or in-person at the FIU Parking offices.
Appeals of citations for university parking infractions and towing/vehicle immobilization fees may be instituted by filing an appeal. Appeals should only be filed if a legitimate basis exists.
