- All students must comply with Chaminade University’s traffic and parking regulations.
- Parking on campus is at the owner’s risk. Granting permission to park on campus should in no way be construed as making the Marianist Center of Hawaii, Chaminade University, or its employees liable for any damage or theft which may occur.
Procedures for Registering Vehicles
Students must go to the Business Office on the 1st Floor of Clarence T.C. Ching Hall, Monday through Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm (except on University holidays), with required documents (see below), to register a vehicle and to purchase a parking permit.
