Please call the Special Events office in Parking Services to arrange courtesy parking for your on-campus event.

For self-service parking, UCLA Parking Pay Stations provide short-term parking options in lots and structures located throughout campus. Rates range from $1 for 20 minutes to $12 for the entire day. For Parking Structure 5 and Lot LS, rates for full-day parking go up to $20. Click here for a complete list of pay station rates and locations.

How to Arrange Event Parking for More Than 25 Vehicles

The Special Events office assures that parking is available and convenient for your guests. Any on-campus event with 25 or more cars expected is considered a special event. Your event will appear on the Parking Services event sheet so that attendees can obtain their permit on the day of the event.

For larger events, Special Events also arranges for attendants to distribute passes at the parking area entrance, provides signage to direct your guests to the parking and event sites and arranges for traffic direction, if needed.
