Student Parking Application Process

UCLA has an extremely limited supply of single occupancy vehicle permits for registered students. We strongly encourage students to plan their commute in advance using UCLA Transportation’s commuter programs, which offer discounted and incentivized options.

Access to a single occupancy vehicle permit is offered on a prioritization process. Registered students must fill out the online parking application in order to obtain a commuter, resident hall, or a two-person or three-person carpool permit.

Residence hall students with an off-campus job and commuter students who have an extenuating circumstance such as a safety issue, child care, or ill family member, etc. must fill out the online exemption application and upload relevant supporting documentation. If you are a prospective, new, or current student with a documented permanent disability, temporary disability, or chronic medical condition, you must apply for parking at the Center for Accessible Education (CAE).
