Parking Updates

Parking Stall Signage Update
New signage is being installed to improve the parking experience for faculty, staff, & student commuters in mixed-use parking areas. Faculty & staff "AR" permit holders will continue to park in "AR" parking areas & general unassigned stalls, as well as new "P" preferred parking areas. Zone commuters with a "P" preferred parking permit may only park in "P" parking areas & general unassigned stalls within their selected zone. Zone commuters may not park in faculty & staff designated parking areas. "C" and "S" permit holders will continue to park in general unassigned parking stalls.

UCI Transportation will conduct parking utilization during the first few weeks of the academic year to optimize parking availability. Please email if you have any additional questions.
