The hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday. Summer and break times may vary. Contact Police Services at 330-672-2212 if you need assistance after hours or during the weekend.

The following free, on-campus services are offered:

  • Battery jump starts
  • Vehicle unlocks
  • Gas transports
  • Tire inflates

When calling for service, you will be asked to provide your name, license plate number, make, model, and color of vehicle, location of vehicle, and service needed. Raise the hood, if possible, and stay with your vehicle until assistance arrives.

A Parking Services employee or a Kent State police officer will respond to motorist’s assistance calls in a marked university vehicle. Prior to any services being completed, you will be required to sign a release of liability form and show your driver’s license.
