Important information about parking at the Valencia campus

Spring 2018

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.

Carpool Parking

Put your seats to use!

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.

Off-Site Parking

When you just can't find a space

Additional parking is available now at our OFF-SITE PARKING LOT on the north side of Magic Mountain Parkway, between Nancy's (Christmas Tree) Farm and Interstate 5 (toggle map below).

No parking permit is required.

We don't recommend that you walk the rest of the way to campus. We do suggest you summon LYFT or UBER and take advantage of the $5 discount. The lot is close enough that your ride should be FREE.*

Staff Parking Only

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.
