Parking & Transportation

Parking for Osher courses is conveniently located, and is included with your course enrollment.

After completing registration for a course or event, you will receive a parking permit by email which is also your registration confirmation; it must be printed in color and displayed face-up on your dashboard. Parking permits are required 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and are valid beginning one hour prior to your class, and ending one hour after your class.

  • Your confirmation/parking permit is valid in Parking Structure 6 (formerly 2), adjacent to the Extended Studies/Gateway Center classrooms (levels 5 and 6 are closest to the classrooms held in ESC and Gateway Center).

  • Handicapped parking is available. A parking permit is still required, in addition to a disabled placard, disabled plate, or a temporary H/C (handicapped) placard issued by the DMV.

  • Visitor parking is available in Lot 6B. Permits are $3/hour.

  • Motorcycles must park in motorcycle stalls only.

  • Please clearly display your parking permit each time you come to class, and check that dates are valid. Be sure the permit is printed in color, with the time(s) and date(s) of your course(s) facing up when you place the permit on your dashboard.

Legal parking is the responsibility of the individual. For questions on parking permits or citations, contact Parking Services. at (619) 594-6671.
