Student Permits

Because parking is such a limited resource at UCSC, students are strongly encouraged to use available public transportation. First and second-year students with less than 90 units residing in University housing facilities are not eligible to purchase a permit (except motorcycle permits) to park on-campus. Eligible students with more than 90 units can explore permit options on the TAPS website.

We are often visited by deer, turkeys, raccoons, squirrels, and the occasional bobcat. Respect our wild animals by keeping a respectful distance away, and do not feed the wildlife.
