Appeal a Ticket

First Level Appeals

There are four ways to appeal a parking ticket — online, via fax, US mail, or in person.

Online Appeal

Appeals can be submitted online through the Commuter Services Online Parking Portal. Please include all applicable information in your appeal statement to ensure faster processing.

You will receive a response via email within 10 business days.

Faxed Appeal

Faxed appeals can be submitted to 801-581-4056. Please submit a photocopy of the ticket in question with your appeal statement or indicate the ticket number and license plate number on your appeal statement. Your appeal statement needs to include your name, email address, and an explanation of why you are appealing your ticket - with your desired outcome.

You will receive a response via email within 10 business days.

*If you wish to follow-up on the arrival of your fax, please call 801-581-6415. 

US Mail Appeal

Written appeals can be mailed to:

Commuter Services - University of Utah
1901 E. South Campus Drive
Salt Lake City, Utah 84112-4360

Written appeals will be based on the postmark date on the envelope. Your appeal statement needs to include your name, email address, and an explanation of why you are appealing your ticket - with your desired outcome.

You will receive a response via email within 10 business days.

In Person

In person appeals are heard every Wednesday from 8:00 am-3:30 pm at the main Commuter Services office, located in the Annex Building.

 

Second Level Appeals

You've gone through the first level appeal, and wish to appeal further. The next step is to take your case to the Parking Appeals Committee. Student, staff, and faculty members volunteer their time to hear your appeal. Two representatives from Commuter Services sit on the committee in an ex officio capacity but do not have a vote. The Parking Appeals Committee meets on a need be basis, up to once a month.

The Parking Appeals Committee requires everyone petitioning a ticket to first pay the fines they're appealing. This prevents fines from increasing while an appeal is waiting to be heard. Unpaid fines not only increase but student holds, payroll deduction, and possible referral to a collection agency can occur.

Once you've paid your parking fine, request an appeals committee form. The forms are available via email or at our main Commuter Services office located in the Annex Building. Complete the form legibly and return it to us. We will forward the form to the Parking Appeals Committee secretary who, in turn, will notify you via email of the date, time, and place your appeal will be heard.
