Parking and Traffic

All vehicles parked on campus must display a valid hanging parking permit or temporary dashboard parking permit. The hanging permit will be legally honored only if it is readable, placed in the proper position on the mirror, and displayed in accordance with parking regulations. Student permits may be purchased online through WebReg. One-day permits may be purchased from dispensing machines in each general parking lot.

Parking is limited to designated areas and in marked stalls. Parking without a valid permit will result in the issuance of a citation. Parking in unauthorized areas can result in the towing of the vehicle at the owner’s expense. The registered owner of the vehicle is responsible for all parking citations given to a particular vehicle regardless of who is driving or who has parked the vehicle.

Bicycles and Motor-Driven Bikes
These vehicles must be parked in areas so marked. They may not be ridden on inner campus pathways and must be walked moving through the campus interior.

Parking and Traffic Regulations
Violation of these regulations will be subject to citations issued by the College Security Department or the Monterey Police Department. Parking citations will be filed with the Monterey County Municipal Court. All citations must be cleared within 21 days. No citation will be voided on campus.
