Parking at OCTC

Parking at all campus locations is on a first-come basis for students, visitors, faculty, and staff. Each location has designated parking for those with handicapped parking designation tags or license plates issued by the state of Kentucky. These tags or license plates must be up to date, and properly displayed. These reserved places are for the person with the disability and not for any other person operating the vehicle.

Parking in roadways or fire lanes and blocking loading docks is prohibited.


Fines for illegal parking may be issued by the Owensboro Police Department, Daviess County Sheriffs Office, or the Kentucky State Police depending on the campus location. Fines will vary depending on the severity of the violation.
