Parking Information

A valid student, staff, or one-day “daily” visitor parking permit is required to park on campus. Student and visitor parking permit requirements are enforced Monday through Sunday, between 7:00 AM and 10:00 PM.

Purchase and/or possession of a permit does not authorize parking on campus. It is the responsibility of the driver to properly park the vehicle and to properly display a valid and authorized permit. Vehicles with car covers are no exception.

Restricted areas, including disabled parking, red zones, loading zones, staff parking, and time zones, are enforced every day, 24-hours a day. Overnight parking is prohibited without prior authorization from the District Police.

Due to the profound impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community, and as a one-time COVID-19 relief measure, West Valley College will be providing all registered students with Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 semester length parking permits at no cost. To receive a permit at no cost, students must order their permit by logging into the student portal on the college website and ordering via the student permit sales link within the student portal. Students may also be able to pick up a no cost permit at the Admissions and Records office when that office reopens for onsite services, however, students are strongly encouraged to confirm office hours and permit availability with the Admissions and Records office before visiting. For online permit orders, a printable temporary permit will be immediately provided by e-mail if the permit purchased is currently in use.

Visitors may purchase a one-day “Daily” parking permit at any of the daily permit dispensers located in parking lots B, C and D. Daily permits are $3.00 per day and all dispensers will accept cash, coins, and credit cards.

To be valid, all permits must be displayed on the front dashboard and the entire permit, including the expiration date, must be visible from the outside of the vehicle.

Visitors who will be on campus for a brief visit may take advantage of a limited number of free forty (40) minute time zone parking stalls located in Parking Lot 5.

Semester length parking permits are the most convenient and cost-effective permit option for students or others who will be on campus regularly.

Semester-length parking permits can be purchased online or in person at the Admissions and Records office. Student ID number, car make, model, year, license plate number, and payment are required at time of purchase.

Grace Period

There is no student parking grace-period offered during any of the summer sessions. All vehicles parked on campus during the summer sessions must have a valid parking permit properly displayed at all times.

A student “grace-period” will be observed during the week immediately prior to the start of the Fall semester and during the first week of the Fall semester. (The “grace-period” begins on Monday, August 23, 2021 and ends on Monday, September 6, 2021.)

During the grace period, no parking citation will be issued to any vehicle that is parked in a marked student parking stall without a permit; all other parking violations will be enforced. Parking citations may be issues to vehicles failing to display a valid student parking permit beginning Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
