Campus Maps & Parking

Parking Information

Fall 2022 Parking Guidelines

Students may park in lots 1, 2, and 3 for free without a permit during the Fall 2022 Semester. Lot 4 is restricted to employees with a permit only. Vehicles parked in lot 4 without an employee permit will be subject to citation. All other vehicle codes will be enforced.

For Faculty and Staff, please use this form to request a parking permit. Once completed, you can pick up the permit from the Sheriff’s Office located in the Cesar Chavez building breezeway. You will need your Cub Card in order to receive a permit. If you do not have a cub card, please pick one up from the Welcome Center located in the Student Services Building first floor.

Motorcycles & Mopeds Parking

All motorcycles are now to be parked in one of the two designated areas within Parking Structure 3 (new structure). Parking of motorcycles is no longer permitted within Lots 1 and 2.

Motorcycles and mopeds are not required to display a parking permit but MUST park in the designated motorcycle parking spaces. Any motorcycle or moped parked in a parking stall designated for automobiles or parked in any other area not designated for motorcycle or moped parking may be cited and/or impounded.

Disabled Parking

There are DISABLED designated parking stalls in each of the student parking lots and throughout the campus. Vehicles parked in these stalls must display a valid disabled permit. Disabled students must follow all Student Parking Policies as described herein and are subject to citation for any violation of the parking regulations.

Overnight & Long-Term Parking

Overnight parking is not allowed unless express consent is granted by the College Sheriff or Administrative Services. Vehicles parked on campus or in parking lots in excess of 72 hours may be considered abandoned and may be subject to impound (22651 (k) CVC).

Weekend & Holiday Parking

Parking regulations are enforced on weekends and holidays, and parking permits are required in all parking lots. Inner campus parking is controlled at all times.

Visitor & Community Service Student Parking

Visitors and Community Service students must display their permits clearly in the front window. All Community Services students and instructors must park in Lot #1. Authorized visitors may obtain a temporary (one-day) parking pass from the College Sheriff's office.

Street Parking

Please be considerate of the college's neighbors when parking on the street; keep the noise level low and don't litter. Street parking around the perimeter of the campus is limited. Read the signs carefully to avoid a municipal citation. Metered parking is available on the west border of the campus on Heliotrope. (There is no parking after 6 PM on the residential side of Heliotrope.) Vehicles parked at a broken or nonfunctional parking meter may be subject to citation. Vehicles with parking permits must also pay if parked in a metered parking stall or space.


Like most urban campuses, thieves are attracted to parked vehicles. So be sure to lock doors when you leave the car. Be careful not to leave tempting objects like purses, backpacks, radios, etc., in visible places in your car (e.g., on the seat). Security will be present at the entrance to the lot and patrolling from 7:30 AM to 10:00 PM each school day. Security cameras also monitor the lots.

Campus Event Requests

As we have limited parking on campus, the timing of events can create a bottleneck for staff who are trying to get to class to teach, or arrive timely for work. If your program or department is considering having a campus event that requires guest parking, please use the following link to request parking for your event:
