Halloween Parking Restrictions & Permit Information


Campus officials have worked diligently to develop a workable parking plan to help ensure the safety of our campus community of students, faculty, staff, and others who require the use of campus facilities during Halloween weekend 2019.  It is our goal to maintain a safe campus that is open to uses consistent with our mandate as a campus of the University of California while at the same time discouraging unauthorized use of campus parking facilities to gain access to Isla Vista during Halloween.

Effective Friday, October 25th, Saturday, October 26th, Thursday October 31st, Friday November 1st, and Saturday November 2nd, the campus will be closed to visitor parking beginning at 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. the following day. 

In order to park on campus during these times, all vehicles must display a valid “Reserved”, ”A”, “B”, “C”, “H”, “22 IVA”,  Annual “Night & Weekend” decal parking permits, or a special event permit.  Daily, Visitor and 15 Day Permits issued from the Permit Dispensers will expire at Midnight on the following days:

  • Friday, October 25th 
  • Saturday, October 26th
  • Thursday October 31st 
  • Friday November 1st
  • Saturday November 2nd 

These permits are not valid for overnight parking.  Unauthorized vehicles parked overnight on campus are subject to a $300 citation fine and having the vehicle impounded at the owner’s expense. The parking restrictions will cease between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to allow for normal business.

Registered UCSB Undergrads with an Annual Night & Weekend decal parking permit can park in designated lots on campus beginning at 9am Friday, October 25th until 7:30am on Monday, October 28th.
