Campus Parking

 

CAMPUS PARKING

NO MORE PARKING DECALS!!! 
YOUR LICENSE PLATE NUMBER DOES IT ALL!! 

Currently parking at the Bundy Campus and the Airport Campus are FREE and will not require any permit. Parking at all other campuses will necessitate either purchasing a "parking permit" or applying for a free "permit" using SMC's new, online "iParq" parking system. Note physical permits are no longer issued. Licenses are checked against those in the database for permit holders.

Whenever possible classes are scheduled at the SMC Bundy Campus location. In some instances they may also be held at various other SMC Campus locations, as well as, community off-site locations.

All locations and directions will be noted on your confirmation email after you have registered. Please keep you confirmation email so you have a record of location and directions for your registered class, as well as, the email of your instructor. For those in need of handicapped parking, note that all SMC campus parking lots have marked handicapped spaces.

All SMC parking lots require Head-in parking only. Not following parking regulations will result in being ticketed. That means no backing into a parking space, no driving through to the other side so you appear to have backed into the space.

Purchasing Parking Permits Online with iParq

Parking permits for Main campus, Center for Media and Design (CMD), and the Performing Arts Center (PAC) can be purchased online at www.smc.edu/parking or in-person at the Cashier's Office. Permits for Bundy and Airport Arts campuses are free but must also be obtained through the same online system. 

Below is a screen-shot of the iParq web page. When permits are required for FREE parking, the GUEST PARKING PERMITS link will be activated (currently it has not been activated). Depending on which campus you select, you may be charged a parking permit fee. If you are parking at a free parking facility, you would only register your car to receive a permit. Currently no parking permit will be needed to park for free on our Bundy Campus.
