Dear Cuesta College students,
Parking permits will be required on Cuesta’s campuses. Parking enforcement begins on the second week of each semester. If you are attending in-person labs or other on-campus activities, you must have a valid parking permit on your vehicle. Semester permits are available, or you can purchase a daily permit for $4 from a permit machine in one of our parking lots. Our campus police lobbies remain closed however, the CCPD staff are on campus and available. All semester permits must be purchased online and picked up in person at either the SLO or NCC Campus Police office. Face masks and social distancing are required or encouraged on campus regardless of vaccination status.

To receive your semester parking permit, please follow the instructions below.

1. Complete and submit a Vehicle Registration form found on Cuesta College Police Departments’ webpage.

2. Once we receive the completed form, we will process your request. We will add the charge for a parking permit to your student account if you have not already done so. No cash transactions are possible at this time. 

3. Permits are available for pick up in person at the campus you specified on the vehicle registration form starting the last week of each semester. Please allow three (3) business days for processing (weekends, holidays, and campus closures excluded). Office hours for pick-up: Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 3:30pm

If you have any questions regarding parking permits, please call the Cuesta College Police Department at 805-546-3205 or email us at For more information about parking rules and campus safety at Cuesta College, please visit our website at the link below for brochures available in both English and Spanish.

We wish you all a safe, healthy, and productive semester at Cuesta College.

State law and the California Education code regulates college and university parking programs.  The San Luis Obispo County Community College District Board of Trustees has established Rules and Regulations to control traffic and parking safety on the college campus as prescribed under Section 21113 of the California Vehicle Code. 

The program of "pay for parking" on campus is based on the concept that parking facilities must be paid for by the user.  Money collected for parking permits reimburses the college for the cost of operating and managing parking facilities.  Enforcement of the parking regulations is the responsibility of the Cuesta College Police Department.

In order to provide safe parking for students, staff and visitors, we ask that you please be aware of the Rules and Regulations.

Parking permits are required and must be properly displayed on all vehicles parked on campus property, including parking lots and roadways, when classes are in session.
