WHERE TO PARK
Student Parking Lots
Students may park in Lots 1, 2, and 3. Lot 1 is the surface parking area, and Lot 2 is the parking structure. Lot 3 is for ASO Preferred Parking only (see below). Parking in other lots, even during the first week of the semester, will result in citation. There is no grace period.
All parking is by valid parking permit, which may be purchased at the LACC Business Office, or paid parking meter in designated lots as posted. A valid parking permit must be displayed at all times the vehicle is parked in a college parking lot throughout the semester, including weekends and holidays. Permit hangers should be hung so that the colored side faces the windshield. The purchase of a parking permit allows access to the designated parking lot but does not guarantee a parking space.
(NOTE: Except for the first two weeks of classes when parking is more congested than usual, the top level of the parking structure typically has available parking throughout the day. We recommend that you arrive early to allow time to secure a spot and walk to class. It takes approximately 6-8 minutes to walk from the lots to the center of the campus quad.)
ASO Preferred: $27.00
Allows you to park in Lots 1, 2, and 3. Additionally, the ASO Preferred parking entitles you to receive the benefits of ASO membership. These benefits include free photocopying, Blue Books, Scantrons, computer use with Internet Access; student representation on important decision making bodies; and sponsorship of college activities. For more details, visit the ASO Office in Clausen Hall 126.
Allows you to park in the Lot 2 Parking Structure only.
Daily Metered Permit: $2.00
Permits are valid in both Lots 1 and 2 on the day of purchase only.
Motorcycles & Mopeds Parking
All motorcycles are now to be parked in one of the two designated areas within Parking Structure 3 (new structure). Parking of motorcycles is no longer permitted within Lots 1, 2, or 5.
Motorcycles and mopeds are not required to display a parking permit but MUST park in the designated motorcycle parking spaces. Any motorcycle or moped parked in a parking stall designated for automobiles or parked in any other area not designated for motorcycle or moped parking may be cited and/or impounded.
There are DISABLED designated parking stalls in each of the student parking lots and throughout the campus. Vehicles parked in these stalls must display a valid disabled permit. Disabled students must follow all Student Parking Policies as described herein and are subject to citation for any violation of the parking regulations.
Overnight & Long-Term Parking
Overnight parking is not allowed unless express consent is granted by the College Sheriff. Vehicles parked on campus or in parking lots in excess of 72 hours may be considered abandoned and may be subject to impound (22651 (k) CVC).
Weekend & Holiday Parking
Parking regulations are enforced on weekends and holidays, and parking permits are required in all parking lots. Inner campus parking is controlled at all times.
Visitor & Community Service Student Parking
Visitors and Community Service students must display their permits clearly in the front window. All Community Services students and instructors must park in Lot #1. Authorized visitors may obtain a temporary (one-day) parking pass from the College Sheriffs office.
Please be considerate of the colleges neighbors when parking on the street keep the noise level low and dont litter. Street parking around the perimeter of the campus is limited. Read the signs carefully to avoid a citation. Metered parking is available on the west border of the campus on Heliotrope. (There is no parking after 6 PM on the residential side of Heliotrope.) Vehicles parked at a broken or nonfunctional parking meter are subject to citation. Vehicles with parking permits must also pay if parked in a metered parking stall.
The Board of Trustees of the Los Angeles Community College District has authorized parking fees for Los Angeles City College.
Los Angeles City College and the Los Angeles Community College District assume no responsibility for damage to any motor vehicle, theft of its contents, or injury to persons operating a vehicle, or parked on or off the campus unless liable under Government Codes, including, but not limited to Government Codes 81O to 966.6 inclusive.
In accordance with California Vehicle Code 21113A and California Education Code 72247, parking regulations will be enforced on the campus. Violators will be cited by the College Sheriff which is not authorized to grant any privileges deviating from the rules.
Red curbs, yellow curbs, and fire hydrant violations are enforced by the College Sheriff, as would be the case in your home community.
CONTESTING PARKING CITATIONS
Parking citations may be contested by completing a Parking Citation Administrative Review form. This form may be obtained at the College Sheriffs office. The form must be filled out completely and filed with the Sheriffs office within twenty-one (21) days of the issuance date of the citation. Incomplete or incorrect forms will not be considered for review. Please be specific in explaining why the citation should be dismissed. The finding of the review will be mailed back to the contesting party.
If you do not agree with the findings of the review, you have the right to request and Administrative Hearing. You have 15 days from the date of the administrative review to commence this procedure. You must post the bail amount (fine) of the original citation, by check or money order, at the College Business Office (AD111). Deliver a copy of the bail receipt to the College Personnel Office (AD213) and obtain and complete a Request for Administrative Hearing form. You will be notified by mail when a hearing date is set.
PARKING FEE PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
Enrollment and Tuition Fees must be paid with or before a student parking permit may be purchased. Student parking fees are refundable each semester through the enrollment refund period. (See the current semesters schedule of classes for the exact date). The parking permit must be returned at the time the refund is requested. No refunds are allowed on day permits. (In the event of a machine malfunction, please contact the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Office on campus, AD-115.)
There is a one week parking grace period at the start of each semester, so students may have time to purchase a parking permit. During this one week, students may park in either lots 1, 2 or in the lower level of lot 3 without fear of receiving a citation.
Beat the hassles of driving. Ride the MTA, Metro Rail, or Metrolink to school. The MTA and Metro Red Line stop right at campus. Metrolink is an easy transfer to the Red Line at Union Station. Discounts for both systems are available for full-time students. For more information contact 1(800) COMMUTE, visit the MTA website at www.mta.net , the Metrolink website at www.metrolinktrains.com , or stop by the College Business Office, AD-111. Student discount application forms are also available from LACCs Touch Screen Information Kiosks.
Like most urban campuses, thieves are attracted to parked vehicles. So, be sure to lock doors when you leave the car. Be careful not to leave tempting objects like purses, backpacks, radios, etc., in visible places in your car (e.g., on the seat). Security will be present at the entrance to the lot and patrolling from 7:30 AM to 10:00 PM each school day. Security cameras also monitor the lots.
Off campus parking is not unusual for a college located in major cities like ours. However, thanks to funding provided through Propositions A and AA construction of on-campus student parking is underway.
