Please note that designated parking facilities are subject to change at any time, and may be restricted or reserved for special events, such as Cal Football

When Can I Park?

  • Student Commuter 'S' parking permits are valid Monday through Friday, from 5:00 am to 2:00 am the following day in 'S' (Student Commuter) parking spaces.
  • After 5:00 pm on weekdays (Monday through Friday) and all day on weekends (Saturday and Sunday), permits are valid in 'C' (Central Campus), 'F' (Faculty/Staff), and 'H' (Hill Area) parking spaces.
  • Permits are not valid for overnight parking from 2:00 am to 5:00 am.

Where Is My Parking Hangtag or Sticker?

Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Semester parking permits purchased through our online channels will be paperless and stickerless so please ensure that your vehicle's license plate is entered correctly as enforcement will be conducted by visual inspection of vehicle license plates.  If a permit is shared by multiple vehicles, only one vehicle is allowed to park on a particular day (additional shared vehicles parking on the same day must purchase a separate permit online, through the PayByPhone app, or at a pay station).
