Parking Permits

Parking permits are required for all vehicles parking on SBCC campus parking lots. Parking permits are available for sale, online by semester, or daily, from the dispensers in the student lots.   In order to avoid a parking citation all cars must have a parking permit affixed to the lower left corner (driver's side) of a vehicle's windshield. Below are the details on where to obtain a parking permit or where to park until a permit has been purchased or received. (Purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space)
