How to Apply for Winter 2022 Student Parking

UCLA students who wish to apply for Winter 2022 parking can do so beginning at 2:00 p.m. Monday, November 1, through Sunday, November 21.

In order to apply for parking, a student must already be registered for Winter Quarter and fill out the application through the Bruin ePermit Portal. (Detailed instructions with screenshots can be found here.) 

Graduate students in a professional school will be able to purchase their Winter Quarter permit (or Spring Semester permit for School of Law students) online without an application beginning Wednesday, November 17. 

Students can apply any time during the application period, but no priority will be given to early applications. Parking permits are offered on a prioritization process as they are in limited supply and are not guaranteed. Students will be notified whether they are granted a permit on December 6 and will need to complete payment by December 10.

More information can be found on our Student Parking Permits page. UCLA Transportation also offers alternatives to driving alone to campus with a variety of commuter programs including subsidized and incentivized options.


Carpool to or from campus with fellow Bruins and save money with a discounted carpool parking permit. UCLA students who apply and qualify for a carpool permit before the application deadline are given priority parking. Use the UCLA Trip Planner to find other students commuting from the same area. 


UCLA Transportation subsidizes transit pass costs for seven transit agencies for all eligible UCLA students. Avoid traffic and relax, sleep, study, or read on your way to campus. Eligible students can receive a free quarterly pass through the Bruin Commuter Transit Benefit program. UCLA graduate students have access to the Bruin Grad Pass program which enables use of all local transit agencies.


Riding a bicycle or walking is a fun, healthy, and inexpensive way to get to and around campus. There are over 3,500 bike racks and lockers located throughout campus and the UCLA Bike Shop offers a wide selection of services to all UCLA students.
