LABOR DAY — On Monday, September 1, UCSB celebrates Labor Day. Campus parking permits are not required. The TPS office will be closed. From all of us, we wish you a most enjoyable holiday.


• If you live in a residence hall on the MAIN CAMPUS, you may apply for a Residential Student (RS) permit starting September 1, 2014. View the Student Main Campus permit page and the Interactive Map for help in deciding which RS permit to apply for. RS permit numbers correspond to parking lot numbers. 2 Parking and 23 Parking have limited parking and permits are more costly, while 22 Parking and 38 Parking have plenty of parking and permits are less costly. Early orders take precedence for the high-demand RS2 and RS23 permits.

To have your RS permit questions answered by a Permit Sales representative, please send us an email or call us at 805.893.4854.

• If you live in SANTA CATALINA Residence Hall, you can find information about applying for a parking permit here. Santa Catalina is an off-campus housing complex with its own parking permit and permit procedures.

15-DAY NIGHT & WEEKEND PERMIT — For your convenience, now selling at $8 at permit dispensers across campus. The 15-day permit replaces the 30-day Night & Weekend permit.
