For more detailed information, please refer to the complete list of UCLA Rules and Regulations.

Parking at UCLA is regulated by the California Vehicle Code and UCLA Parking Rules and Regulations. UCLA parking policies are designed to maximize service and availability to our parking customers.

To ensure a hassle-free parking experience on campus, please familiarize yourself with the following rules, policies, and regulations before parking on campus.

  • The operator of the motor vehicle is responsible for compliance with all parking rules and regulations including finding a legal parking space and understanding where and when a parking permit is valid.
  • The purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee a space to park. Lack of space is not considered valid justification for violation of UCLA parking regulations.
  • The daily ePermit becomes effective at the time and on the date of purchase. Parking permits are not retroactive when purchased after the parking citation has been issued.
  • The garaging of vehicles is prohibited except for residence hall tenants with the appropriate permit in selected parking structures and lots.
  • Under the authority delegated to Parking Services by the Chancellor, no individual or department other than Parking Services may grant parking privileges on campus. All parking permits issued to users of the parking system remain the property of the University.

The University reserves the right to:

  • Issue citations for illegal parking as authorized by the California Vehicle Code
  • Determine enforcement hours for all campus parking rules and regulations
  • Impound (tow or boot) vehicles with more that five unpaid citations under California Vehicle Code Sections 22651 (I) and 22651.7
  • Refuse issuance of a parking permit
  • Audit information supplied by students granted parking
  • Revoke student parking privileges for up to four (4) years for students who:   
    • Do not respond to an audit
    • Do not supply sufficient documentation for an audit
    • Alter or duplicate a permit
    • Purchase or use another person's permit
  • Change parking assignments or privileges as deemed necessary
  • Restrict the use of any parking stall, area, structure, or surface lot at any time
  • Temporarily or permanently relocate permit holders as needed
  • Determine the mode of parking for any area at any time (e.g. self-park or stack park)


University of California Regents are not and shall not be liable under any circumstances for the loss of or damage to vehicles, or contents thereof, parked or garaged in a UCLA lot or structure by any cause whatsoever not arising directly from the negligent acts of the Regents of the University or its employees acting within the scope of their employment.

There are three opportunities to appeal a citation:

1. Within 21 days of the citation issue date, you may submit an online Administrative Review form.
2. If you are dissatisfied with the results of the Administrative Review and have been found liable, you have 21 days to request an Administrative Hearing. The amount of the citation must be paid by your due date in order to appeal your citation at this level.
3. If you are dissatisfied with the results of the Administrative Hearing, you have 30 days to file a Civil Appeal at the Los Angeles Superior Court.
