Information for Vehicle Registration (including Motorcycles and Mopeds)

  • Chaminade University of Honolulu is a privately owned property and Chaminade University, by law, has the right to regulate traffic and decide who may park motor vehicles on campus.
  • Only students registered to attend classes at Chaminade University may park a vehicle on campus. Students must register their vehicle (cars, trucks, motorcycles, mopeds) and pay the required fee at the Business Office, and comply with Chaminade’s traffic and parking regulations. Fees apply to one semester only.
  • 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.
  • If any vehicle or its parts or contents are damaged or stolen, the incident must be immediately reported to the Campus Security Office, located in the Henry Hall Annex Building or call (808) 735-4792.
  • If you damage an unoccupied vehicle on campus, report it immediately to the Campus Security Office, leave a note under the windshield wiper of the other car, stating your name, telephone #, license plate # and the name of your insurance carrier. There is no substitute for courtesy and respect for the rights of others.
  • Chaminade University may sell more decals than there are parking spaces (because of the various days of school and class times). Therefore, parking is on a first come first served basis. The Parking Permit is good for the semester it is issued for.
Procedures for Registering Vehicles

Students go to the Business Office on the 1st Floor of the Clarence T.C. Ching Hall to register a vehicle and to purchase a parking permit. Faculty and staff go to the Personnel Office in Clarence T.C. Ching to obtain a permit at no cost.
