 2018 Commencement Parking Information

Multiple Commencement ceremonies are scheduled to take place between May 12th and May 21st.

Visitors coming to campus for Commencement activities held during the following dates will not be required to have parking permits:

May 11, 2018 through May 13, 2018
May 15, 2018   (Starting at 12 noon)
May 17, 2018 through May 22, 2018

During these periods of time, we also expect higher volumes of traffic on our local roadways and in the “B” lots and structures located between Darby and Etiwanda Avenues. With this in mind, Parking and Transportation Services is urging all commuters to plan additional time to account for potential delays. If your anticipated parking area becomes unavailable, please consider using one of the "G" lots on the east side of campus or the D6 Lot along Halsted Street.

Thank you and congratulations to our graduates!

Parking Guidance System (Car Counting)

Finding an open parking space on campus can be a challenge. At CSUN you will soon be able have real-time information letting you know exactly how many open parking spaces exist in the B3, B5, and G3 parking structures. These open space counts will be displayed through a smart phone app, and on physical signs posted on the perimeter of the campus. You will be able to drive directly to open parking spaces and reduce the carbon emissions that are produced by driving around in search of parking. The smart phone app will be designed with driver safety in mind and may not allow use while your vehicle is in motion.

Planning for the new G6 Parking Structure (Zelzah & Plummer)

The G6 Parking Structure is scheduled to begin construction in the Fall 2018 semester. This structure will be designed to provide approximately 1500 additional parking spaces to the campus’ existing parking inventory.  It will be located on the east side of campus at the intersection of Zelzah Ave. and Plummer St.  Some important features that it will have include an entrance/exit that is aligned with the Zelzah/Plummer intersection; extended entry/exit queue lanes to mitigate traffic congestion in and out of the structure; additional spaces for EV charging stations; bicycle and scooter storage; dual level energy efficient LED lighting; enhanced storm water treatment; and it will be photovoltaic ready to accommodate future solar arrays.
