Jump-Starting Cars

We'll get you back on the road

Jump-Starting Cars

DPS provides free jumpstarts for all vehicles on University Property. If your vehicle is contiguous to the campus such as University place or parked in a roadway within the core campus, DPS will provide a jumpstart.  Every patrol car carries jumpstart boxes in their vehicles and all officers are trained on jump-starting cars.

  2. Put the hood up.
  3. If parked in the student parking lot, please let DPS know which row you are in.
  4. You will be required to sign a form permitting the jumpstart.
