Night & Weekend Permit – Employees and Community
Night & Weekend Permit
Who is eligible
UCSB employees and members of the community are eligible to purchase a Night & Weekend permit.

If you visit the campus infrequently, you may find it more economical to purchase a flat-rate Night & Weekend permit from the dispensers located in the lots and parking structures on campus. Please view our Short Term Rates table for fees.

When & where to park
A Night & Weekend permit allows parking on campus Monday through Friday from 5:00PM until 7:30AM the next morning, and all day Saturday and Sunday. These are the only times for which the permit is valid.

Parking is allowed during the above designated hours (and only during these hours) in:
  • faculty and staff lots (see Faculty & Staff Parking for the locations of lots that allow visitor/student parking during non-business hours)
  • student lots (see Visitor & Student Parking for locations)
  • time-restricted parking spaces for the time designated
The permit is not valid in lots, areas, and spaces marked “At All Times” or where other restrictions apply — for example, reserved, metered or Coastal Access spaces, or lots/spaces marked for vendors or “RS” permit holders. The permit is not valid in the off-campus parking facilities operated by Housing & Residential Services.❖
