Parking Protocol

  • Athletic and theater events attendees are to pay for $1 parking permits when they buy entrance tickets; parking is not relaxed.
  • VIPs and dignitaries coming to campus may receive a dashboard permit issued to them, and accounted for by Chief Flores, by email. These kinds of permits are issued by request only, and would come to Chief Flores with campus approval, typically presidential.
  • Patrons for nonathletic or theater events that expect less than 40 attendees will use codes in the parking dispensers to buy a parking pass, issued by the division dean (which they have or can have easily assigned to them from Chief Flores).
  • Relaxed parking can be provided for community events that anticipate more than 40 attendees and these will need prior approval from the Vice President of Administrative Services.
