Prohibited usage of Internet/social networking sites may include • stalking, harassing, or threatening another person or group • creating language on a social network that is threatening, vulgar, or derogatory • displaying or being displayed in an activity that violates federal, state, or local law and/or any regulation outlined elsewhere in the NSU Student Handbook B.31 Parking and Motor Vehicle Policy Failure to comply with the Parking and Motor Vehicle Policy is prohibited and may result in disciplinary action. In order to park a motor vehicle on campus in any university parking area, the vehicle must be registered with the university and a parking permit must be properly displayed. All administrators, faculty and staff members, students, and visitors must register vehicles to be driven or parked on campus. All administrators, faculty and staff members, students, and visitors are responsible for any violations of these regulations in which their vehicle is involved. Motorcycles, motor scooters, and mopeds are subject to the regulations governing automobiles. NSU Public Safety is authorized to designate any spaces as temporary reserved parking. Abandoned vehicles are subject to towing at the owner’s expense, unless the owner notifies NSU Public Safety, in writing, at the time the vehicle becomes disabled. The director of NSU Public Safety will determine whether a disabled vehicle is allowed to remain on campus. Vehicle repairs that create a nuisance are not permitted on campus. Any property damage caused by the administering of any repairs is the responsibility of the person making such repairs. Trailers or mobile campers are allowed to be parked on campus only with written permission from the director of NSU Public Safety. The maximum speed on any NSU driveway or roadway—excluding those owned and managed by the Town of Davie, Broward County, or the state of Florida—is 15 miles per hour or less. All vehicle operators must obey NSU Public Safety and police direction and instructions regarding operating and parking motor vehicles.
