Getting a Parking Permit
Resident students have different parking lots and permits than commuters. There are also different resident permits, depending on which dorm or apartment complex you live in. Motorcycles, mopeds, and scooters have their own designated spots and permits. Carpool permits are also available. Permits can be purchased online at www.sandiego.edu/parking.
