Parking permits

Parking permits are required for all campus lots and must be placed on the dashboard of each vehicle.

Daily permits must be ordered by the organizer in advance and will be charged to the master bill. Unfortunately, we cannot bill individuals directly for daily permits, and unused permits cannot be returned for credit. Individuals may purchase hourly permits. (See "Hourly permits" below.)

Parking permits are $16 per day.

Vehicles with a University of California annual parking permit may park onsite at no additional cost.

Hourly permits: Individuals may purchase hourly permits from dispensing machines in the campus lots.

Please carefully read the posted instructions for payment. Daily permits expire every morning (including weekends).

Please note that parking rates are subject to change without notice.
