E-Scooters on Campus
Procedures for Policy on E-Scooters and Other Low Speed, Motorized Personal Transportation Devices on Campus
By policy, UIC restricts the use of e-scooters and other low speed, motorized personal transportation devices on campus.
Fall 2021: UIC PD officers will receive training from Centers for Diversity staff, led by Margaret Fink, Director, Disability Cultural Center, on tips for approaching students. Some students utilize non-traditional assistive devices, for example.
Spring semester 2022: For first month, no warnings will be given, only reminders and information. Thereafter, enforcement will include warnings as appropriate.
Compliance (starting Spring 2022):
Violation Code Citation Amount
First Violation Warning Only $0.00
Second Violation Mandatory Fine $50.00
Third Mandatory Fine $75.00
Fourth Mandatory Fine $100.00
Individuals who observe someone riding a non-ADA personal electric device in a location prohibited by our policy should contact the UIC Police at the non-emergency number – 312.996.2830. Violations must be reported at the time they occur. Staff and faculty violators will be reported to UIC Human Resources and/or Faculty Affairs. Students in violation of the policy will be reported directly to the Dean of Student Affairs. Repeated violations by an individual may lead to disciplinary action.
All student appeals must go through the Dean of Students Office by going to dos.uic.edu (Student Disciplinary Policy) and all faculty/staff appeals must go through Human Resources by going to www.hr.uic.edu.
Parking Locations for E-Scooters:
City of Chicago shared e-scooters procedures should be observed per program specifications. Personal e-scooters must be docked at designated docking locations in scooter/skateboard docks.
