Kenyon College's campus layout fosters the concept of a walking campus. Even the most remote areas of the campus can be reached on foot within 15 minutes. Kenyon has limited parking spaces, and all parking rules and regulations are strictly enforced. Students should understand that bringing a vehicle to campus is a privilege.  

The Campus Safety Office manages vehicle registration and enforces parking violations on campus. The Knox County Sheriff's Office patrols the Village of Gambier and enforces state and local ordinances in the village and surrounding area.

Please familiarize yourself with the College’s parking rules and regulations. Receiving a permit indicates that the registrant is aware of all rules and regulations. Contact the Office of Campus Safety with any questions or concerns. We would always prefer to clarify parking rules versus writing a parking ticket.


Motorists must yield the right-of-way to all pedestrians in crosswalks on campus.
