Parking On Campus First Week of School

During the first few weeks of the semester, parking will be very difficult. Many extra people will be trying to add classes, and they will also be trying to park. Plan accordingly and add in some extra time to get to your class or appointment on time.

If you park in a student parking lot without a parking permit during the first week of school, you will not get a ticket. However, if you park in a staff lot without any parking permit during the first week, you WILL get a ticket. Starting the second week of school, regular parking rules.

You may pickup parking permits and bus passes at the Student Affairs office in Aptos or at the Watsonville Center.
