Parking Regulations

‚ÄčThe following regulations and procedures have been designed to provide for the effective use of parking areas, the safe movement of motor vehicles and pedestrian traffic, and the general safety of the campuses. Failure to comply with parking or traffic laws and regulations constitutes a violation subject to established penalties. Regulations must be observed at all times, including exam periods, registration, summer school, weekends, periods between semesters and inclement weather.

  • A valid student, staff, or one-day "daily" visitor parking permit is required to park on campus. Student and visitor parking permit requirements are enforced Monday through Sunday, between 7:00 AM and 10:00 PM. 
  • Purchase and/or possession of a parking permit does not guarantee the availability of a parking space. It is the responsibility of the driver to locate an authorized parking space, legally park the vehicle and to properly display a valid parking permit. Vehicles with car covers are no exception.
  • Restricted areas, including disabled parking, red zones, loading zones, staff parking, and time zones, are enforced every day, 24 hours a day. Overnight is prohibited without prior authorization from the District Police.

  • Parking is prohibited in any area not specifically marked as a parking space, including planted and unplanted landscapes, lawns, sidewalks, pedestrian malls, service docks, service drives, roadsides, driveways, streets and other traffic ways, pedestrian crossings, disabled ramps, bus zones; red, yellow, white and unmarked curbs, posted No Parking zones, barricaded or closed lots and streets.
  • Vehicles must be parked with all wheels resting within the boundaries of the parking space as indicated by painted lines or other markers. Taking more than one parking space is prohibited.  
  • Students or Staff members who have special parking or loading needs must make arrangements with Parking Services in advance. Business cards or notes left on the vehicle are not acceptable and a citation may result.
  • Business cards or notes left on a vehicle are not an acceptable substitute for a valid parking permit. Vehicles displaying only a business card or note will receive a citation. No warnings are issued.
  • Stolen permits should be immediately reported to the District Police department by calling 408-855-5435 or by visiting the Police business office on campus. Lost permit will not be replaced free of charge, however, a replacement permit may be purchased at the original purchase price.
