    • CAMPUS PARKING:

      Students and Visitors

      Students and visitors can purchase daily or full semester parking permits through My Canyons. The cost for a daily parking permit is $3.00 and for a semester permit is $50.00. We do have discounted permits for qualified students. All information regarding parking permits can be found on this website: https://www.canyons.edu/studentservices/sbo/parkingpass/

      We will no longer have hanging or sticker parking permits for students or visitors. The permits are now virtual, making the vehicle license plate the permit.

       

      Students

      • Students should log into My Canyons and click on the Parking or My Billing tile.
      • They will then log into the park permit system with their CanyonsID Credentials.
      • The students can select the days they want to park on campus or purchase a semester-long permit.
      • Students eligible for the California College Promise Grant (CCPG) award or any other program that offers parking at a discounted rate will have a discounted permit as an option to purchase.
      • Payments are made online with a Visa, MasterCard, or Discover card.
      • Students who wish to purchase their parking permit with cash can come to the Student Business Office on the Valencia Campus for purchase.  
         

      Visitors

      Visitors can now purchase their daily permits online at  https://www.canyons.edu/studentservices/sbo/parkingpass/. We also have a QR code (below) that takes them to the site. Visitors will no longer use the permit machines in the parking lots. They can order the permit right from their phone, and it automatically registers the car as having a valid permit for the college. The current parking machines have this message posted to make it easier for visitors to get a permit.

      • Visitors will create a username and password, then select what permit they want to purchase (daily or semester-long).
      • They will then add vehicle information and check out to purchase the permit(s).

      They can select multiple dates all at once when purchasing daily permits.

    • Valencia Parking Instructions:
      The Learning Center (TLC), LTLC -126, is located next to the Library on the south end of the campus. You will want to park in parking lot 15, the closest parking to the building (from Rockwell Cyn. Rd. turn onto University Center Drive and make a quick right into the first parking lot 15).
