If you plan to park on campus, you will need a parking permit. Daily passes are available across campus at marked parking kiosks, or you can order a semester permit online via WebAdvisor or MyPortal. You can view a quick tutorial video on purchasing your parking pass online here: https://youtu.be/P7JcGSfKTcU
Students can park in white-lined spaces while displaying their parking pass. Parking tickets will be issued if you do not display your permit. Familiarize yourself with the different lots, and allow yourself time to find an open stall. Yellow-striped spaces are for staff only. Please be aware of the rules and follow them to avoid a citation. Parking is limited. To save money and avoid traffic congestion you may want to use your FREE RTA bus pass, carpool or plan your trips to campus.
