Campus Safety is charged with vehicle registration and parking enforcement. Student parking permits are valid only on the campus for which they have been issued. All parking permit fees and citation fines that are collected become revenue for the students’ or employees’ campus.
All vehicles parked on Claremont Colleges’ property must display a valid parking permit or authorized guest parking permit. All vehicles not displaying a valid parking permit are subject to being cited and/or towed. Temporary parking permits are available at Campus Safety.
Clery Act Reports
In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and Crime Statistics Act, Claremont Graduate University published its Annual Security and Fire Safest report. Information is gathered from Campus Safety as well as the other Claremont Colleges and local law enforcement. The latest report is available online.
Sexual Assault Prevention and Advocacy
If you are a survivor of sexual assault, you may not be ready to take action but may want to speak with someone confidentially about what happened to you. The Claremont Colleges Services organization can refer you to several resources that are permitted by the nature of their profession to maintain your confidentiality.
The EmPOWER Center’s mission is to create a culture in which all members of The Claremont Colleges respect and look out for one another, and in which students impacted by sexual violence, dating/domestic violence, and stalking receive holistic support and care. The Center provides free, confidential advocacy and support to 7-C students impacted by serial violence, dating/domestic violence, and stalking.
Outside Sexual Misconduct Resources

Other Support Sources
There are many sources of support at the colleges. However, many individuals are mandatory reporters of sexual misconduct. You may choose to talk with someone who is not a confidential reporter, such as a resident advisor or dean of students staff member. Unless an organization is listed explicitly as a confidential reporter, it may be a mandatory reporter. Mandatory reporters must file reports with the Title IX coordinator, and if identifying details are provided, disciplinary action may be necessary. If you are not sure if you want to pursue action, you may want to speak with a confidential support resource first.
CGU’s Title IX coordinator is Assistant Vice President of Student Services Lisa Flores Griffith.
