Campus Parking

 

CAMPUS PARKING

Classes are scheduled at the SMC Bundy Campus and various other SMC satellite campuses, as well as off-site locations—please check your class confirmation for class locations. Classroom assignments could change from semester to semester, and may not always be held at the same location.

Parking at all other campuses during normal campus hours, except Friday 12:00 noon to Sunday evening, will necessitate having a "parking permit" or parking on street metered parking spaces.  Physical permits are no longer issued; license plates are checked against those in the database for permit holders.

 

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 address of your instructor. For those in need of handicapped parking, please note that all SMC campus parking lots have marked handicapped spaces.

All SMC parking lots require Head-in parking only. Violation of any parking regulations will result in being ticketed at the student's own expense.
