Parking at RCCD colleges is similar to parking in any busy metropolitan or downtown area. Moreno Valley College offers a mix of student and staff permit parking, pay-by-hour, and limited short-term visitor parking.
Reviewing the information about parking regulations, permits, procedures and tips on this page will help make on-campus parking a less stressful experience.
The RCCD spring 2018 term is from February 12 - June 7, 2018
The spring 2018 parking grace period is Monday, February 12 - Sunday, February 25.
As long as a student/visitor is parked in a white-striped student parking space only, they will not be subjected to being cited for a permit violation during the parking grace period.
Staff/Faculty parking permits are required in order to park in a yellow-striped Staff/Faculty parking space at all RCCD locations. Parking Services will recognize any type of RCCD staff/faculty parking permit (expired or not) during the spring 2018 term parking grace period only. If no Staff/Faculty parking permit is displayed, the vehicle is subjected to being cited for a permit violation.
Students, staff and faculty are required to display a valid RCCD spring 2018 or annual 2017-2018 parking permit effective Monday, February 26. College Safety and Police and Parking Services will begin actively citing for all parking permit violations starting February 26.
RCCD Faculty/Staff permits are available online through RCCD WebAdvisor.

Who Must Have A Permit?
Every vehicle that parks on any campus must either display a permit or pay the meters. Visitors to the District shall park in the white striped student stalls, in metered parking, or marked timed spaces, wherever available. Visitors may obtain a temporary parking permit from the DSAPPS College (222-8522) or any College Safety and Police Department located on each college.
What Does It Cost?
Permits for both students and staff are $50 for the Fall and Spring, $25 for Summer semesters. See Parking Permits, Meters, and Fines for more details.
Where Can I Park?
Each lot has a specific designation for who can or cannot park there. There are also areas (such as disabled spots, fire zones, loading areas, etc.) that are posted for the exclusive use by certain persons or vehicles. Board Policy spells out in detail such areas and restrictions. Parking regulations may be enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week including all rules of the California Vehicle Code. These include, but are not limited to, disabled and fire zones, vehicle registration and any other area marked as enforced 24 hours a day.
Why Must I Pay to Park?
The fees collected from the sale of parking permits are used to fund college and student services. Fees also fund police officers, safety escort services, lot maintenance and new lot construction on all three colleges.

On July 1, 2011, RCCD Police will begin enforcing parking regulations 7 days a week, 24 hours a day at all college campuses, education sites, and district locations. Under AP 6750 Parking, revised April 11, 2011, this means that all vehicles must display a valid District permit (student or staff), a District- or College-issued temporary permit, or use metered parking any time the vehicle is parked at a college or district location. Grace periods are still in place for the 2011/12 academic year: first week of summer session, first two weeks of fall and spring semesters, and first week of winter session. Student parking permits can be purchased online through WebAdvisor.
A staff person is defined as anyone who works more than 20 hours a week for the district. Student employees are not staff and are not eligible to purchase a staff permit. All personnel defined as staff must purchase and display a staff permit. This includes temporary and/or part time employees. Staff are not authorized to possess or use any other type of permit. The only exception to this are those temporary permits issued by Parking Services for those who already have a current staff permit.
Staff permits are valid in any staff and student parking space on campus. Staff can register to receive a staff carpool permit from Parking Services. Contact us at (951) 571-6190 for more information.
