Parking Enforcement

Parking permits will not be required for students during the fall 2022 and spring 2023 semesters. However, students are required to park in designated student parking spaces.

Employee parking permits will be required beginning in fall 2022.

Los Rios Police Department (LRPD) will enforce violations in red zones and other restricted areas, metered or timed parking, disabled parking, and violations that impede traffic or block access.

How to Buy a Daily Parking Permit

Daily parking permits cost $2. Permit machines accept one dollar ($1) bills or coins (25-, 10-, 5-cent coins only). Some newer machines accept credit cards.


Daily parking permits are not transferable between colleges.
