  • Parking permits are granted for the purpose of transportation to and from campus. Garaging (storing) your vehicle on campus is prohibited unless you are an "H" or "IVA" permit holder in the assigned parking lot.
  • Parking permits are issued solely by Parking Services and are assigned after verification of eligibility. 
  • Permits remain the property of UCSB and are assigned to individuals.  They are not transferable between friends or family members.
  • Permits are issued when the applicant has paid the required fee, resolved all delinquent parking citations and provided proof of eligibility.
  • Failure to provide and maintain accurate information on the parking permit application may result in citation, fine, the loss of parking privileges and referral to the Campus Police or the Dean of Students for disciplinary action.
  • Decal type permits must be attached to the lower left hand (driver's) side of the windshield with the adhesive provided on the decal and without the use of tape, plastic sleeve or hang tag (unless originally issued in that format).  Please remove all expired permits from your windshield to avoid citation.
