22 IVA Permit & 38 IVA Permit

22 IVA and 38 IVA permit 

The 22 IVA Lot 22 Isla Vista Access and the The 38 IVA Lot 38 Isla Vista Access permit allows Isla Vista residents who are UCSB students to park in 22 Parking or 38 Parking.   

Who is eligible

UCSB non-on-campus resident students are eligible to purchase the 22 IVA permit or the 38 IVA permit. The program accommodates up to 75 automobiles and motorcycles. We cannot however accommodate trailers, RVs, or other types of oversized vehicles. Parking permits are granted for the purpose of transportation to and from campus and long term parking for UCSB non-on-campus resident students.

Where to park

A 22 IVA permit entitles you to park on the upper levels of 22 Parking (levels 4 & 5). Please observe signage on individual spaces, as restrictions sometimes apply. For example, the permit does not allow you to park in Coastal Access spaces on weekdays, Monday–Friday 7:30AM–5:00PM.

A 38 IVA permit entitles you to park in the unmarked spaces in Lot 38. Please observe signage on individual spaces, as restrictions apply. For examply, the permit does not allow you to park in the "A/B/C Visitor" spaces within Lot 38. 

Monday–Friday from 5:00PM to 7:30AM and all day Saturday and Sunday, the permit allows you to park in lots and spaces allocated to visitors and students, and those allocated to faculty and staff. Thus the 22 IVA permit and the 38 IVA permit becomes equivalent to a Night & Weekend permit. As always, take care not to park in spaces marked “At All Times”, or where other restrictions apply.

The 22 IVA permit and the 38 IVA permit are NEVER valid in Lots 1, 2, 11, 19, 24 or the UCSB owned off campus housing units (Santa Ynez, San Clemente, El Dorado, Westgate, West Campus, Storke Family Housing, Santa Catalina, or Sierra Madre).
