WHO MUST PAY FOR PARKING AT SRJC?
Students who intend to park a vehicle on District properties must obtain a valid SRJC parking permit. Student parking permits are available during registration at the Accounting Office in Bailey Hall or the Police Department (after hours only, as long as the permit was not ordered online)on the Santa Rosa Campus, at the Accounting Office at the Petaluma Campus, and at the Administration Office at the Public Safety Training Center. If you pay for parking through mail or online, save your receipt; your permit will be mailed after all parking fees have been paid. The permit will not be mailed just because it's been ordered. If you would like to purchase the permit in person, separate from your registration fees, please purchase your permit at the Accounting office.
Parking permits are designed to be hung from the rear-view mirror and must be displayed in vehicles by the first day of each semester. Motorcycle permits are to be affixed to the right front fork. There is no grace period.
Permits that are lost, stolen or damaged can be replaced at full price by going to the Accounting Office.
IS MY SRJC PARKING PERMIT GOOD TO PARK IN THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS?
