Emergency Medical Assistance

Campus Security will summon Emergency Medical Services (EMS) if needed or requested to do so. Campus Security does not transport injured or stricken individuals to hospitals or emergency care centers. If an emergency arises on campus, call Campus Services using a regular college telephone by dialing 4444 or “0” for operator. If you do not have access to a regular telephone and there is an immediate need for police, fire or ambulance response, activate any emergency phone. By pushing the large red button you will be put in touch with Lorain County’s 9-1-1 system. Again, only activate an emergency phone if police, fire or ambulance response is required.

Lost and Found

Campus Security maintains a lost and found service for the  campus community. Report lost items and turn in items that are found unattended to the Campus Security Office. Found property will be held for 30 days if unclaimed.


During emergencies or other special circumstances or events, follow the instructions provided by Campus Security and local law enforcement.

Parking regulations have been adopted for the benefit of students, faculty, staff and visitors, and to enable Campus Security to manage a heavily trafficked campus. Parking is defined as the standing of a vehicle upon any property owned or controlled by the College whether accompanied or unaccompanied by an operator for more than one minute.

All persons shall park in assigned areas and within a single parking space. Illegal parking is defined as:

  • Parking in a restricted area (such as fire lanes, at yellow painted curbs, in “no parking” areas or in driveways, etc.);
  • Parking in a driveway or entrance to a parking area since driveways and entrances are considered fire lanes;
  • Parking in a space or area specifically designated with a “reserved” sign. No person shall park in Handicap designated parking areas unless registered with the State of Ohio and displaying an appropriate placard.

Spaces for Students, Faculty/Staff and Visitors

Spaces striped with white lines are for students and visitors. White lines are found in Lots 1-8 (see map). Eighteen short-term (30-minute) parking spaces are available in front of College Center (College Center Loop). Spaces specifically reserved for faculty and staff parking are striped in yellow. Handicapped Parking areas are found in Lots 1, 2 SE, 4, 5, 6, North of the University Center and CC loop (see map). Selected spaces Lots 1 and 2 are reserved for motorcycle parking.

Handicapped (and Disabled) Parking
LCCC provides special parking for disabled and handicapped students and visitors. Individuals requesting a temporary campus handicapped parking permit may be required to furnish a physician’s statement attesting to the need for special parking considerations. The Director of Campus Security determines the need for such a statement. Valid handicapped permits issued by the State of Ohio are recognized as authorization for parking in designated handicapped areas.

Faculty and Staff Vehicle Registration
LCCC requires the registration of all motor vehicles on campus that are operated by faculty and staff when such vehicles are operated or parked on the College campus. Faculty and staff permits are issued on a permanent basis and are for the exclusive use of the faculty or staff member to whom issued. Use of the permit by others is prohibited and may result in revocation of the permit.

Students and visitors are not required to register their vehicles.

Roadway Regulations

Absent specific College traffic regulations, all provisions of the Ohio Revised Code (related to any traffic matter) shall be in full force and effect on all College-owned or controlled property and shall be enforced at all times.

  • The speed limit on the College’s main roadways is 25 m.p.h. and 10 m.p.h. in parking areas.
  • Vehicle operators must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians.
  • It is unlawful to disobey the directions of any traffic sign, signal or Campus Security Officers.
  • Vehicle accidents occurring on College property are to be reported immediately, regardless of the extent of the damage.

Penalties for Violations

Students, faculty and staff charged with a violation shall pay the appropriate fine by making payment (in person or by mail) at the Cashier’s Window or to the Bursar’s Office within 10 days of the violation.

Visitors who receive parking citations are requested to contact Campus Security for disposition of the matter. Appeals will be considered within 10 calendar days from the date the citation was issued and should be submitted in writing to the Director of Campus Security. Appeals denied at the Campus Security level may be appealed to the LCCC Vice President for Administrative Services. Vice President’s Office decisions are final.
