ParkAdmin – Online Parking Violation Payments and Appeals

Brown University utilizes ParkAdmin – an online parking violation and appeal management system.

Use ParkAdmin to:

  • Arrange payment for violations and fines online.
  • Pay for violations and fines using a major credit card.
  • Appeal a violation online.
  • View your Parking History.

If you have received a parking violation, go to ParkAdmin to make payment arrangements (check or money order), pay by credit card, or file an appeal.

To utilize the online system, all users must create a user profile in ParkAdmin. If you wish to make payment by cash, check, or money order, choose the appropriate option and forward payment to the Parking Office. Payments must be received by the Parking Office within 5 business days or the parking system will cancel the transaction and the fees/fines will be returned to outstanding status.

Payment may also be made by credit card. American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa are accepted.


If a vehicle owner has reason to appeal a Brown University fine, he/she must do so online through the online parking violation and appeal management program. The appeal must be submitted within seven (7) days of the date of the violation. After that time, any outstanding violation appeal is not subject to consideration.
