Campus Weekend Overnight Visitor Parking Restrictions

The weekend overnight visitor parking restrictions has been implemented by UCSB Transportation & Parking Services (TPS) every Friday and Saturday night. These restrictions are intended to keep the UCSB campus safe and secure, and to limit use of campus parking by late-night and overnight visitors to Isla Vista.

All visitor permits issued from all campus permit dispensers will expire at 11:59 pm. No visitor permits will be sold from permit dispensers on Friday nights from 10:00 pm through Saturday mornings at 5:00 am, and on Saturday nights from 10:00 pm through Sunday mornings at 5:00 am.

The violation for weekend overnight visitor parking on Saturdays and Sundays between 12:00 am and 5:00 am (i.e., parking without a permit, or parking with an expired or invalid visitor permit) will carry a fine amount of $100

Special Weekend Overnight Visitor Parking Permits will be available for guests of UCSB Housing residents, or guests of UCSB Staff and Faculty, in advance from TPS (for the normal $4/night fee). Each visitor’s vehicle license plate must be provided to TPS.

In an effort to inform the community and to discourage the use of campus parking facilities for Isla Vista late- night or overnight visitors, this notice along with other notices will be broadly distributed, including digital signs at all campus vehicle entrances, regular AM 1610 parking information announcements, d-list, s-list, u-mail, public releases to the local media, including the Daily Nexus, The Current; and Digiknow/Facebook/Twitter notices to Housing & Residential Services residents.
