Housing & Residential Services.

When & where may I park on campus?
The Santa Catalina permit issued by TPS is valid for your designated parking area, but not elsewhere on campus
from 7:30AM to 5:00PM, Monday–Friday.
The H permit issued by Housing & Residential Services is not valid
for parking on campus during the same 7:30AM to 5:00PM, Monday–Friday hours.
After-hours and on weekends, the permits give you the same parking privileges as a Night & Weekend permit.
Thus, parking is allowed in any of the lots and spaces allocated to visitors/students or faculty/staff.
Restrictions may apply. For example, the permits do not allow you to park in faculty or staff
spaces marked “At All Times”.
Parking is allowed in time-restricted parking spaces for the time designated, but only after-hours and on weekends.❖
