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 are authorized to use campus facilities during the Halloween weekend 2020.  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 30th, and Saturday, October 31st,  the campus will be closed to visitor parking between 11:59 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”, "38 IVA",  Annual “Night & Weekend” decal parking permits, or an event permit.  Daily, Visitor and 15 Day Permits issued from the Permit Dispensers will expire at Midnight on the following days:

  • Friday, October 30th 
  • Saturday, October 31st

Unauthorized vehicles parked overnight on campus or in any UCSB off campus parking facility 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 and coastal access parking.

Registered UCSB Undergrads with an Annual Night & Weekend decal parking permit can park in designated lots on campus beginning at 9am Friday, October 30th until 7:30am on Monday, November 2nd. 

Parking is allowed only in Structure 22, and 18 (Mesa Structure). All other campus lots are subject to closure and may be physically closed to prevent unauthorized visitor access.
