Parking and Transportation
Oakland Campus

Parking on Campus

Campus parking is designated by commuter, residential, guest, and faculty/staff access. All spaces, including reserved residential and administrative stalls, are indicated by signage and/or pavement markings. The Oakland campus also has two electronic vehicle charging stations. Download the Oakland campus map (PDF) for parking lot, accessible parking area, and EV charging station locations.

Parking permits are required for all residential and commuter students, as well as faculty/staff.

  • Commuter students are required to have a permit for their personal vehicle and may only park in the lots designated for commuters.
  • All vehicles without a permit are subject to citation and/or towing after September 15, 2023.
