CSUDH Passport Assistants  Parking: Important Information

You can park in Lots 7 (closest), 4A and 4B (south of the Gymnasium), or 6 (west of LaCorte Hall). There are two 30-minute visitor spots available directly in front of the SAC 2 building, and several visitor parking spots just south of the NSM (Natural Sciences & Mathematics) building; however, BE PREPARED for longer stays. If your visit requires more than 30 minutes, we recommend you purchase a daily pass ($9) to avoid getting ticketed. (There are parking permit kiosks in the center of Lot 7 and at the corners of Lots 4 and 6.) Parking is STRICTLY ENFORCED in all lots. Please make sure to display a daily permit or current term parking permit as required. Should you have any question(s) please contact Parking Services at (310) 243-3725.

Parents of small children: please be aware that our office building also houses research and academic staff, and ask that children not be allowed to run/play inside the building; we have a friendly, park-like open seating area between SAC2 and SAC3.
