Off-Campus Parking Lots
UCSC prefers that students who are not eligible to purchase an on-campus parking permit not bring vehicles to Santa Cruz unless advance arrangements for paid long-term parking off-campus are made. Residential streets near campus and in downtown Santa Cruz have strictly enforced parking permit requirements managed by the City of Santa Cruz Permit Parking Program.
A good option for off-campus parking is offered by the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Information and an online application are available. Please contact the Beach Boardwalk at 831/423-5590 prior to submitting an application.
The City of Santa Cruz offers off campus long-term parking at Depot Park for $125 per quarter. Depot Park is located near downtown Santa Cruz, just a short walk to a Santa Cruz Metro bus stop where students can catch a bus to campus. Applications are available at the Santa Cruz City Parking Office, 124 Locust St. (office is in the front of the Locust Street Parking Garage). For more information call 831/420-6100.
