Because Kenyon College has a limited number of available parking spaces, all parking rules and regulations are strictly enforced. Kenyon College's campus layout is intended to foster the concept of a walking campus.
Under most conditions, even the more remote areas of the campus can be reached on foot within ten minutes. It must be kept in mind that having a motor vehicle at Kenyon is a privilege, not a right.
Parking and moving violations on campus are enforced by the Campus Safety Officers. The Office of the Knox County Sheriff patrols the Village of Gambier and enforces state and local ordinances in the village and surrounding area.
