Important information about parking at the Valencia campus
Parking at the Valencia campus will be impacted by construction of a parking structure in Lot 7 at the corner of Valencia Boulevard and Rockwell Canyon Road. This 1,659-space structure will dramatically improve parking over the long term, but we will have fewer available parking spaces during construction.
PARKING LOT 7 IS NOW CLOSED.
We have taken a number of steps to help you commute or find parking during this temporary parking shortage. They include:
It is our sincere hope that these steps will help alleviate the situation and minimize the impact on you. Thank you for taking the time to explore your parking and commuting options.

PARKING LOT 4 is now a carpool-only lot. We define a carpool as at least two people: a driver and at least one passenger. Do this, and you can park here!
And, yes, we'll be watching; the entrance to this lot will be staffed.
You'll need a valid student parking permit for spring 2018. After 2 p.m., no parking permit is required, but you still need to be qualified as a carpool to park here.

Staff parking changes
Please be aware that PARKING LOT 2, located off College Circle at Rockwell Canyon Road, has been temporarily converted from a staff parking lot to a student parking lot. This will remain in effect until the parking structure is completed.
We ask all faculty and staff to not use Parking Lot 2. A temporary staff parking lot has been created on the UPPER ATHLETIC FIELD, which can be accessed from Campus Drive near Parking Lot 5. Please be cautious when entering and exiting this lot, as the access drive crosses a busy pedestrian sidewalk.
And, additional staff parking has been added behind the east wing of the UNIVERSITY CENTER.
