Visitor Parking

Welcome to Humboldt State University. To assist you with having a pleasant visit, Parking & Commuter Services wishes to share some tips for parking on campus. Campus parking facilities are not supported by taxpayer dollars, but are self-supporting. California state law states that permission to park on campus is granted to those persons who have paid a parking fee. This includes students, staff, faculty, and university visitors who are attending special events, such as cultural shows, musical/theatrical performances, sporting events, and conferences, or visiting facilities like the Library, Bookstore or Gym.

Regulated Parking Hours

All regulations are in effect 24 hours a day, every day of the year. This includes Service and Yellow Loading Zones, Disabled and Reserved stalls.

Exceptions: Parking meters and parking fees must be paid Monday-Thursday 7:00 am - 10:00 pm and Friday 7:00 am - 5:00 pm, every week (52 weeks) of the year. Parking fees are not required Fridays after 5:00 pm or on Saturdays and Sundays.

Payment Options

Daily parking permits may be purchased for $3.50 from one of the parking permit dispensers located throughout the campus. This permit must be displayed on the dash and is valid on the day purchased and only in GENERAL lots before 5:00 pm, or in any lot after 5:00 pm. It is not valid at a parking meter.

Visitors and guests may utilize 10-hour parking meters on Rossow and B Streets at a cost of $.75 per hour. Short-term meters are also in front of Gist Hall, on Harpst Street, and in the Library Lot.

Center Arts patrons may purchase daily permits for performances at the time they purchase their tickets.

See map for dispenser, lot, and meter locations.

ADA Parking

ADA parking stalls are located around campus, see map, to provide access for individuals possessing a disabled person placard or license plates and a purchased daily permit, as stated above. A vehicle displaying a disabled person placard or license plates may park for unlimited time periods at a parking meter without paying the meter or purchasing a daily permit.

Please Note

Parking is very limited and at certain times it may take additional time to find an available space. Between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm, allow yourself adequate time, 15-20 minutes, to locate available parking.
