Parking and Transportation

  • For many commuter students, your car is a vital component to obtaining your education. That's why we offer commuter student permits, which are available for the OC, TV, and UDA lots (lot availability is subject to change), and are valid in all non-restricted University lots after 5 p.m. and on weekends, except during special events. Permits are not valid for overnight parking in any campus lots. Visit Student Parking for more information.

    Additionally, hourly and daily parking rates are available for commuters in the OC, OH, PH, SO, and SN facilities.

    The annual commuter parking permit sale is occurring on August 8, 2023 at 6 p.m.  Commuter students purchasing a permit must live outside of Oakland area and it does not allow for overnight parking on campus. Visit Commuter Student Permits for more information about how to purchase a permit.
