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.
Fall 2020 Parking Information
Parking permits will be available at no cost for those required to be on campus during the fall 2020 term. Students and faculty will receive a permit from Parking Services personnel in class during the first two weeks of face-to-face instruction. Staff will receive a permit from their manager.
All parking rules and requirements still apply. Parking enforcement begins Monday, September 7 to allow for permit distribution.
Student Permits: Provided only those students attending face-to-face instruction, blue student permits should be displayed by hanging on the rear view mirror facing outward. Students are permitted to park in white parking stalls only.
Faculty/Staff Permits: Provided with a red employee permit, faculty and staff should display their permits on the rear view mirror facing outward. Yellow parking stalls are for faculty and staff only.
If you do not receive a parking permit, stop by the District Police station on your campus (PSC 1). Students must show identification and proof of class registration. Faculty and staff members must show a District identification card.
Who Must Have 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 marked timed spaces, wherever available. Visitors may obtain a temporary parking permit from the DSAPPS College (951) 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.

RCCD employees are eligible to park in yellow-striped faculty/staff parking stalls or white-striped stalls with a valid faculty/staff parking permit. Employees 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. No vehicle may park in a yellow-striped stall without a faculty/staff permit or valid temporary permit. Student employees are not eligible to purchase faculty/staff parking permits.
RCCD Police enforces parking regulations 7 days a week, 24 hours a day at all college campuses, education sites, and district locations. All vehicles must display a valid District permit, a District- or College-issued temporary permit, or use metered parking any time the vehicle is parked at a college or district location (AP 6750).
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. Staff may also have the cost of an annual permit deducted from their paycheck on a monthly basis.
