There are a variety of parking options for your event. The most convenient is the daily permit for residence hall lots. This parking option should be arranged centrally by the conference organizer. The sections below outline the different parking options. 

Daily Permits for Residence Hall Lots

Parking permits are required for all Residence Hall lots, and must be placed on the dashboard of each vehicle.

Daily permits must be ordered by the organizer in advance and will be charged to the master bill.

Unfortunately, we cannot bill individuals directly for daily permits, and unused permits cannot be returned for credit. Individuals may purchase hourly permits.(See "Hourly Permits for Residence Hall Lots" below)

Parking permits will be charged at the rate of $15 per day.

Vehicles with a University of California annual parking permit may park onsite at no additional cost.

Hourly Permits for Residence Hall Lots

Individuals may purchase hourly permits from dispensing machines in the Residence Hall lots.

Please carefully read the posted instructions for payment. Daily permits expire every morning (including weekends).

Please note that parking rates are subject to change without notice.
