Parking permit enforcement begins the second week of each semester.

(Fall, Spring & Summer) 

Parking Permit Enforcement:
Monday through Friday -- 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. 
Saturday -- 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 
(When classes are in session.)

All vehicles are required to properly display a valid parking permit when parked anywhere on campus property, including parking lots and roadways, when classes are in session.

Student semester parking permits may be purchased during registration periods and throughout the semester at the Campus Police Department or at the Cashier's office on the San Luis Obispo or the North County campus. 

Semester parking permits that are ordered online at myCuesta MUST BE PICKED UP in PERSON at the Cashier's office or at the Campus Police office on either the San Luis Obispo (SLO) campus or the Paso Robles campus (NCC).  The fees for replacement and additional permits are full price.  Semester parking permits are valid at either campus.Proper display of parking permit

Student semester permits must be clearly displayed in the following methods: 
     a.  Permanently affixed on the interior lower right corner of the front windshield. 
     b.  Suspended from the rearview mirror on/in a plastic hanger.  Permit should be facing forwards, toward the front of the vehicle so it can be seen if standing in front of the car.
     c.  Motorcycles or mopeds must display permits on the front forks or cowling.

Parking permit dispenser


Daily parking permits can be purchased for $2/day from the yellow self-serve dispenser machines located in parking lots 1A, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 on the SLO campus;  lots 10 and 11 on the North County campus  or at the Campus Police/Public Safety office on either campus.  Machines take $1 (one dollar) bills and quarters only. Machines do not give change.

Daily parking permits must be properly displayed face up on the dashboard so that the date-of-purchase is visible.



Disabled parking is available in each of the paved lots.  Students and staff that park in disabled parking spaces must display a valid Cuesta parking permit and a valid disabled placard issued from the Department of Motor Vehicles.  In the event that accessible parking is unavailable, the driver may park in the nearby staff or time limited parking spaces with a valid parking permit and disabled placard properly displayed and visible at all times.

Visitors displaying a valid DMV-issued disabled placard may park without a Cuesta parking permit in disabled parking spaces that are designated "Visitor Only".  Failure to visibly display a valid DMV-issued disabled placard may result in a citation and fine, per DMV regulation.

 Please Note, a Visitor is one who is not participating in classes, activities or events on campus.
