All vehicles parked on campus must display a valid campus parking permit, or be parked at a paid-for meter. Depending on the duration and frequency of your visits, you may decide to pay hourly or daily short-term rates, or else purchase a longer-term permit that may be valid for a month, a quarter or a year, depending on the permit type.

The University reserves the right to limit the use of parking areas to specific vehicle types as required by facility design or other considerations.
The University may change any parking zone designation.
The University may close, either temporarily or permanently, any parking area. Advance notice of parking area changes or closings is provided whenever practical.

Transportation & Parking Services,

an innovative and self-sustaining department, supports the UCSB mission by providing safe and reliable parking, fleet services and transportation alternatives to our campus community.

Visitor parking is permitted in designated visitor/student parking lots and spaces, provided a valid visitor permit is displayed.
Permits may be purchased from the permit dispensers located in lots throughout campus.
Machine-dispensed short-term permits are non-refundable and cannot be applied to the purchase of a long-term permit.
If parked at a meter, the meter must be paid. A machine-dispensed or decal permit is not valid for parking in a metered space.
Valid parking locations
Certain lots allow visitor parking at all times, while others allow visitor parking only after 5:00PM and on weekends. Several lots are reserved for specific permit types and allow no visitor parking at any time. Please refer to the lot entrance sign to be assured that visitor parking is allowed within the lot.

Visitor permits are valid for parking in time-restricted parking spaces for the time designated. e.g., 20, 30 or 40 minute green curb spaces. Other restrictions may apply to specific spaces or areas within a lot or parking structure.

The permit is not valid for example, in Faculty "A", Staff "B", Coastal Access, Reserved, Restricted, Service, Vendor spaces.  Additionally, the permit is not valid in university-owned residential housing parking lots and structures ("H" Permit lots).

Coastal Access parking
Coastal Access parking in designated Coastal Access spaces is open to the public on weekdays between 7:30AM and 5:00PM. During these hours, your vehicle must display a Coastal Access permit, which has a four-hour time limit. One to four-hour permits may be purchased from onsite permit dispensers. After hours and on weekends, the Coastal Access spaces are open to all valid UCSB permit-holders.

Visitors to UCSB’s scenic shoreline may find four-hour Coastal Parking parking in 6 Parking, 10 Parking, 22 Parking, 23 Parking, 5 Parking, or at the south end of Ocean Road.

Metered parking
Card-reading meters have been installed throughout campus.  These meters accept payment by major credit cards and rates vary by location. 

The maximum time on a meter is posted on the meter and varies by location.  When parking at a parking meter at UCSB, the meter must be paid and operational the entire time the vehicle is parked. 

If you find a meter that is out of order, we ask that you call the number on the meter (805-893-4445) so that it can be repaired right away.

Please note that permits are not valid for parking at meters. 

ADA Parking and Meters:  When displaying a valid ADA Disabled placard, payment must be made at the meter, unless a valid campus parking permit is displayed.  Therefore at a metered space, if you are displaying an ADA Disabled placard, you may either pay the meter or display a valid permit to park. 

Meters in Lot 3:  Metered parking in Lot 3 is the same as metered parking anywhere else at UCSB:  payment must be made at the meter and the meter must be operational the entire time the vehicle is parked.  Any time left on a meter is not transferable, meters will reset the time remaining to zero the moment a car pulls out of a space.

When parking between the hours of 7:30 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, the rates for parking at the metered spaces mirror rates for Gold Space Permit parking in other locations on campus – e.g., a full day of parking costs $12.00. 

Weekend Overnight Parking Restrictions
The weekend overnight visitor parking restrictions is implemented by UCSB Transportation & Parking Services (TPS) every Friday and Saturday night.  These restrictions are intended to keep the UCSB campus safe and secure, and to limit use of campus parking by late-night and overnight visitors to Isla Vista.

All visitor permits issued from campus permit dispensers that would normally be set to expire at 7:30 am Saturday or Sunday, will instead expire at 11:59 pm on Friday and Saturday nights. No visitor permits will be sold from permit dispensers on Friday nights from 10:00 pm through Saturday mornings at 5:00 am, and on Saturday nights from 10:00 pm through Sunday mornings at 5:00 am.

The violation for weekend overnight visitor parking on Saturdays and Sundays between 12:00 am and 5:00 am (i.e., parking without a permit, or parking with an expired or invalid visitor permit) will carry a fine amount of $100.
