Parking and Transportation Services


Effective February 23, 2015, Parking and Transportation Services is implementing a new pilot program that offers incremental short-term visitor parking rates for the F5, G3 & G4 surface lots and the G3 parking structure. The new rates will only be available for these locations. The new parking rates are:

$4 - 2 hours (0-2 hours)
$5 - 4 hours (2 hours & one minute to 4 hours)
$6 - 4+ hours (4 hours and one minute on)

A map of the locations can be viewed by clicking on the following link:

Welcome to the Department of Police Services and the Parking & Transportation Home page.  The Parking & Transportation Division has a dedicated staff available to assist you with your parking needs.  Whether you are seeking information on directions to the campus, need a jump start, or need to purchase a parking permit, you can find answers to your questions on the links to this page or by calling our office. 

If your need is to discover alternative means of transportation to the campus, please feel free to connect to us via our Transportation page.  There you will find options and incentives to decrease our dependence on single occupancy vehicles to our campus. 

Our Department pro-actively looks for ways to respond to Campus needs.  A few exciting points are our recent collaborations with the College of Engineering and Associated Students.  Parking Services is proud to be a part of the coordination and installation of two electric charging stations in parking lot E5, adjacent to Jacaranda Hall.  This project goes hand-in-hand with another project that the senior design class is working on with Facilities Management, which is to install solar panels on the roof of Jacaranda Hall.  The goal is to offset the consumption with solar energy.  These units will better serve the EV (Electric Vehicle) community with a green solution while providing an educational resource to the engineering department.  Our most recent  partnership with Associated Students has allowed us to bring Zipcar to campus.  Please visit our web-site periodically to get updates on our programs.

Please remember that California State University, Northridge requires a valid parking permit be displayed on all vehicles parked on campus on a 24/7 basis.
