University Parking Regulations

Parking permits are granted for the purpose of transportation to and from campus. Leaving your vehicle overnight on campus is prohibited unless you are a residence hall tenant with the appropriate permit.

In accordance with California Vehicle Code (CVC) 12500(a), anyone operating a motor vehicle must have a valid driver license.

Under the authority delegated by the Chancellor, no individual or department other than UCLA Parking Services may grant parking privileges on campus. All parking permits, decal, and gate access cards issued to users of the parking system remain the property of the University, are for the registered permit holder only, and are non-transferable.

The University reserves the right to audit information supplied by students who were granted parking; change parking assignments or privileges as deemed necessary; restrict the use of any parking stall, area, structure, or lot at any time; and temporarily or permanently relocate permit holders as needed.

Parking regulations and permit abuse is strictly enforced. Violations of any parking regulations are subject to disciplinary action, which may be referred to the Dean of Students, and legal action, including but not limited to recalling or canceling a parking permit, imposing fees, withholding refunds, placing holds on your MyUCLA account, and revoking parking privileges. Other regulations (or penalties) include:

  • Intent to sell or resale UCLA property (e.g., permit/decal or gate access card) is prohibited and will subject both buyer and seller to disciplinary and legal action.
  • Unauthorized use of a UCLA Parking Permit by an individual not registered with Parking Services may result in cancellation of parking privileges.
  • Falsification of information on the student parking application form or online may result in the recall or cancellation of a parking permit and may also result in disciplinary action.
  • Possession or use of a lost, stolen, voided, duplicated, altered, or unreturned parking decal is cause for all action noted above. Serious offenses may result in vehicle impoundment and criminal charges, which may be pursued by the City Attorney through the court system.
