Recommended Routes to Parking at CSULB During Peak Times

During the first weeks of each semester CSULB experiences a high volume of vehicular traffic and campus roadway use. If an alternative form of transportation is not practical we recommend arriving early, avoiding the highest congested areas, and taking the most direct route to parking. Peak times of congestion are from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday. During these times we recommend avoiding the 7th street entrance at West Campus Drive unless you are parking in lots 4, 5, or 6 and avoiding Merriam Way unless you are parking in lots 15 or Parking Structure 1.  Below are the recommended routes into campus parking lots and structures during peak traffic times. (Scroll down for employee lots).

Overflow parking is also available August 22-25th from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 5761 E. Colorado Street, Long Beach, CA 90814. For more information please visit the CSULB Overflow Parking webpage.
