Parking Basics

Who, What, When, Where and Why of Parking

Who Must Have A Permit....

Every vehicle that parks on any campus must either display a permit or pay the meters. This includes parallel parking on Saunders Street on the Riverside City College campus.

Visitors to the District shall park in the white striped student stalls, in metered parking, or marked timed spaces, wherever available. Visitors may obtain a temporary parking permit from the DSAPPS College (222-8522) or any College Safety and Police Department located on each college.

What Does It Cost....

Permits for both students and staff are $50 for the Fall and Spring, $25 for Summer semesters. See costs of Permits and Fines for more details.

Where Can I Park....

Each lot has a specific designation for who can or cannot park there. There are also areas (such as disabled spots, fire zones, loading areas, etc.) that are posted for the exclusive use by certain persons or vehicles. Board Policy spells out in detail such areas and restrictions.

There are also areas that have pay-by-space or pay-by-day meters. Meters are located in lots A, B, C, and S. Meter permits are valid inany student stall. 

When Can I Park....

Parking regulations are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Why Must I Pay to Park....

Fees collected from the sale of parking permits are used to fund police officers, safety escort services, lot maintenance and new lot construction on all three colleges.
