Where may I park on campus?
All University lots and the parking structure are open to any vehicle displaying a VALID parking permit, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. A valid permit is a current Employee permit, Resident Student permit, Commuter Student permit, Vendor permit or daily permit purchased from the parking kiosk.
Is parking permitted on campus nights and weekends?
Vehicles may park in all University lots and in the parking structure WITHOUT a permit on weekdays from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. and on weekends.
Where am I NOT permitted to park on campus?
You may not park at any time:
- In a handicap space without displaying handicap plates or placard
- On sidewalks, roadsides, on grassy areas or in “No Parking” zones
- In any parking space with a posted “Reserved” sign
- In parking spaces designated with signage for specific groups or departments
- In a fire lane
Lack of convenient parking never excuses illegal parking. Violators may be cited and/or towed at the owner’s expense.
May I leave my car in University parking lots or the parking structure during school breaks or over the summer?
No. Any vehicle left unattended for more than 72 hours will be identified as stored, abandoned or disabled. These vehicles will be marked and the owner contacted. If the vehicle has not been removed within 7 days of being marked, the vehicle will be towed from the property at the owner’s expense.
Is there free parking for everyone on the top floor of the parking structure?
NO. Only employees may order a free PS Parking Permit which is only valid on the top floor of the parking structure. If no spaces are available on the top floor, PS permit holders may not park on any other floor of the structure or in any University lot.
ALL vehicles must display a valid parking permit to park on any floor of the parking structure. Guests and visitors may NOT park on the roof of the structure without displaying a valid daily permit.
No, you may not park in a Reserved/Personal parking space at any time. There are a number of parking spaces on campus that are designated as “RESERVED” spaces. Each reserved space is clearly painted and posted with a sign designating it for a specific permit number (i.e. “Reserved Parking 001”). Parking is not permitted in a reserved space at any time, regardless of the time of day or day of the week. Parking in a reserved space is not permitted by anyone other than the holder of that reserved permit number. Violators may be cited and/or towed at the owner’s expense.
There is timed parking on city streets surrounding the University allowing for 90 minute or 3-hour parking.
Parking in front of homes on residential city streets near the University is prohibited weekdays where posted and violators may be cited and/or towed by the City of La Verne. On weekends parking on residential streets may be permitted; please check posted signs before parking. If you are unsure of where to park on city streets, please contact the City of La Verne.
The University has entered into a “Good Neighbor” policy agreement with the City of La Verne and is required to implement policies and practices to minimize University constituent parking outside University parking lots/structures when they bring a vehicle to work/school. To review the Good Neighbor Policy, please click here: GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY.
If your vehicle is cited and/or towed by the city, please call the La Verne Police Department at 909-596-1913 if you need information. Please do not contact Campus Safety or Transportation and Parking Services as they will be unable to assist you with tickets issued by the City of La Verne.
I’m a Temporary Employee. What are my parking options?
Please contact Human Resources for assistance in obtaining a parking permit.
What should I do if my car is towed?
The University contracts with a local tow company (Sanders Towing, 344 W. Arrow Highway, San Dimas, 909-599-3178). Vehicle owners are responsible for retrieving vehicles from the tow company storage yard and will be liable for the tow fee ($185) and storage fees ($50/day). Please do not contact Campus Safety or Transportation and Parking Services if your vehicle is towed as they will be unable to assist you.
Yes, but remember to register all vehicles on line and place your removable parking permit in the car you are driving. Employees are permitted to register three vehicles under the same parking permit account; Students are permitted to register two vehicles under the same parking permit account . Only one permit per person is issued. Parking permits are decals and may be removed and replaced easily. If you switch cars often, we recommend laminating your permit and placing it in your dashboard.
Remove your old vehicle from your account and register the new one by going to the My La Verne portal and clicking on Staff Resources or Student Resources, then choosing “Manage Vehicles”.
NO. Permits are nontransferable, and you will be held responsible for all citations issued against your permit account regardless of the vehicle in which it is displayed.
What if my permit is lost or stolen?
Report lost or stolen parking permits to Transportation and Parking Services as soon as possible. Recovered permits must also be reported immediately and should not be used. Use of a lost or stolen permit may result in a fine, tow (at owner/operator expense), and/or disciplinary action.
There is a $25.00 replacement fee for a lost permit. Please go to Student Accounts in Woody Hall to pay the fee and bring the receipt to Transportation and Parking Services to order a new permit.
There are parking spaces designated for motorcycles in Lots E, I, J, H1, B, O and on the ground floor of the parking structure. Motorcycles may also park in striped areas in any parking lot on campus. Motorcycles do not require a parking permit unless they are parked in a stall designated for a car.
Visitors and Guests may park in any University lot and in the parking structure by displaying a daily permit. Violators may be cited and/or towed. Daily permits may be purchased from the kiosk located in Lot D for $1.00/hour or $5.00/all day.
