As part of its program to modernize and upgrade its campus, Los Angeles City College (LACC) will open its new parking structure on the September 2nd start date of the fall 2008 semester.

“It’s not too late to enroll for fall classes and pay the Associate Student Organization fee that includes preferred parking in this beautiful new lot,”  LACC President Dr. Jamillah Moore said.  “This unique structure is a space-saving, multi-use, two-story building designed to give us more parking and increase student access.  We look forward to having our women’s track and field team and the local fitness walkers test out the roof-top track next spring.”

The roof of the parking structure will house the new athletic field for the campus, which will include a softball and soccer field in addition to a six-lane track.  The new structure provides a unique urban and “green” solution to the campus’ facilities expansion.  It accommodates more than 950 parking spaces, in addition to the campus’ new LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Maintenance and Operations facility.

LACC is the home to over 15,000 full time students with small class sizes and quality faculty.  LACC is the original home to UCLA and provides transferable opportunities to all students.  One of the most diverse campuses in the 109-campus California Community College System, LACC is located adjacent to the Central Los Angeles, Koreatown, Filipinotown and Little Armenia areas of the city.  Classes are offered year-round at only $20 a unit and financial aid is available to students who qualify.  For more information, visit www.lacitycollege.edu or call 888.930.LACC.

The parking and athletic structure is part of LACC’s $248 million campus renovation and upgrade program to enhance and modernize its facilities.  For more information, visit the construction program’s website at www.LACCDbuildsgreen.com
