Fall 2021 Parking Information
There will be no cost for fall 2021 parking permits, but you must still follow the normal process to receive them via mail, and display one at all times in your vehicle.
Permit enforcement will be waived from August 23 to September 5 to allow time to receive your permit in the mail. All other parking rules will be enforced, including parking in the appropriately colored stalls (white for students and visitors, yellow for employees).
Permit enforcement will resume on Septmber 6. You will be required to display a parking permit in your vehicle when parking on campus at all times.
Do I need a permit?
Every vehicle that parks on any campus must either display a permit or pay the meters. Visitors to any RCCD location must park in white-striped student stalls, in metered parking or in marked timed spaces, wherever available. Visitors may obtain a temporary parking permit from any College Safety and Police Department located at each college.
How much does it cost to park?
Permits for students and employees are $50 for the fall and spring semesters and $25 for summer term. No permit is required during winter term. For daily rates and by-day parking fees, see Parking Permits, Meters, and Fines for more details.
Where can I park?
White-striped parking stalls are available for vehicles with any RCCD parking permit. Yellow-striped parking stalls are for employee parking only.
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.
When does parking enforcement start or end?
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.
Fall and spring both offer two weeks of free parking to students at the start of each term. Summer term allows for one free week of parking. This applies to white parking stalls only. A permit is required at all times to use yellow employee stalls.
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.
