Student Off-Campus Residence Permits
University off-campus housing complexes include Santa Catalina residence hall, four single-student apartments (El Dorado, San Clemente, Santa Ynez, and Westgate), and two family student apartments (Storke and West Campus). The complexes are managed by Housing & Residential Services.

How do I apply for a parking permit?
Transportation & Parking Services is now issuing a special parking permit for Santa Catalina residents. Please read about the new service here. Click Buy your parking permit HERE if you’re ready to begin a purchase order.

Other residents of University-owned off-campus housing may apply for the H permit issued by Housing & Residential Services. Parking regulations and permit requirements vary by complex. Housing’s Parking & Transportation webpage provides essential information for each type of housing.

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.❖
