How do I get a parking permit?

Parking Permits

A parking permit is required at all times at the Cabrillo College main campus. Our Welcome Center website found here, contains details on selecting parking permits, rules and regulations and other information.


Day-Use Permits

Purchase a day-use permit for $4 from vending machines in student parking lots. Machines accept $5 and $1 bills and assorted coins. The day-use permit is valid on the date of purchase only. Before purchasing a daily permit, always find a legal parking space first. Park in marked spaces only!


 Semester Permits

To get your permit: Pick one up in person (bring a photo ID). If you didn't previously request and pay for it online, we'll charge your student account.

Parking is enforced Monday-Friday, 7am-10pm. Permits must be displayed in your vehicle in the lower left of the windshield. If lost or destroyed, you can purchase a replacement permit at full price.


Permits are valid in student parking spaces only. If you are parked in a staff or visitor space, you will be cited. Motorcycles do not need a permit as long as they park in designated motorcycle parking space. If you need a temporary disabled student permit, stop by the Accessibility Support Center, located upstairs in the Library, with supporting documentation.


If you need to move your permit from vehicle to vehicle, buy a special hang tag for $2 from the Welcome Center- SAC East on the Aptos campus.


Parking permits cannot be mailed. Remember to bring a photo ID of yourself to pick up your permit.
