Parking Fees

A CSULB parking permit or day permit is required at all times, except as noted on entrances to parking areas. Parking permits may be purchased online at or in person, if paying in cash only, at the Cashiers' Office, BH-148.

Parking Permits

You must purchase a Summer 2017 permit to park in the designated parking lots from May 22 - August 18, 2017. Student virtual permits are available for purchase online via e-check(no fee) or credit card (2.75% convenience fee). Student parking permits are valid one week prior to the start of instruction. Annual student parking permits are valid at the start of summer session and end with the spring semester For more information, please visit the LPR website.

Student virtual permits are valid in all general lots. Please adhere to the specific rules on the black and gold parking signs at the entrance of each lot to avoid being cited. Student virtual permits are valid in employee parking lots, with the exception of lot 5, after 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends. A vehicle with a student parking permit will be cited accordingly if parked in an employee lot before 5:30 p.m. For locations of general lots, please see the campus map. If you have not purchased annual or semester parking, you may choose to purchase a daily or short-term parking from a pay station for use in general parking lots or at short-term parking spaces.

Special Parking Permits

Disabled Drivers

You must display a Handicapped placard as well as your current student, employee, or day permit to park in any Handicapped space, designated by blue borders and a wheelchair emblem. If you do not have a placard, visit Disabled Student Services, BH-270. Your Handicapped placard does not entitle you to free parking at CSULB. If you need a short-term Handicapped parking permit, go to Parking and Transportation Services - see the campus map.

Student Carpool Parking

If you are a current CSULB student with a paid semester or a non-expiring payroll deduction parking permit, we encourage you to carpool to campus. Not only do carpool members share the cost of gas and a CSULB parking permit, but they can also avoid traffic by accessing the convenient HOV lanes on freeways leading to campus. More information is available on our Carpool webpage.
