Campus Security & Parking

Sign up for SUAlert & OPT-IN

Students, parents, faculty and staff are encouraged to register for our SUAlert service.

SUAlert text messages are the fastest and most reliable source of information about campus closures and developing emergency situations. 

Stevenson's campus security staff is committed to providing a safe environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors whenever the University is open. Security personnel are either off-duty or retired Baltimore County Police officers or Maryland State Troopers.

If you wish to contact security, dial "0" on any campus phone. This will put you in contact with the receptionist, who can call security. Emergency phones are easily accessible from all campus buildings and the parking lots.

Stevenson University's safety report is viewable online:

    Maryland Law and Stevenson University policy restricts the use of handicapped spaces to individuals with special needs.

    Persons with special needs are requested to register their vehicles with Campus Security so that arrangements can be made to assure that an appropriate parking space is available for them while attending classes at Stevenson University.

    Temporary handicapped permits are available to members of the community for short and long term convalescence.

    If the fine is not paid within 30 days, it will be doubled and transcripts will be withheld until payment is received. After the initial 30 days, a notice will be sent to the violator's home.

    Any violation that requires a Maryland State Motor Vehicle record check will have a surcharge of $35.00 added to the fine.

    Citations may be appealed.

    Appeals

    Members of the university wishing to appeal a citation should submit a copy of the citation and three (3) copies of a typewritten appeal to the Security Director describing in detail why the fine is being appealed. The appeal must be filed within 30 days from the date of the parking violation notice.

    The Citation Appeals Board will convene about once a month to consider written appeals. Decisions will be by majority vote of the Board. A written memo will be sent to the appellant stating the decision of the Board. The decisions of the Citation Appeals Board are final.
