Winter Break Parking Tips from UTPD

As you leave for the end of the semester, UTPD has a message for you. Some of you may decide to leave your vehicles here on campus. If you have decided to do so please make sure to do a few things to help keep your vehicle safe.

  • Park in a well-lit area.
  • Park your vehicle in a highly traveled area.
  • Take all valuables out of your vehicle. Even the appearance of valuable items, charging cords, and GPS mounts left in the open could make your vehicle a target.
  • If possible, have someone you trust periodically check on your vehicle.

These simple strategies go a long way in helping prevent victimization. UTPD will continue to patrol campus and surrounding areas through December. For more information, you can contact UTPD at 865-974-3114 or We hope you have a safe Holiday Season.
