Applications for a waiver of the parking fees are available at DPRC. Applicants must be registered with DPRC and have a DMV placard or plate.

Campus Permit Needed

To park in any of the lots located on campus, you MUST have an SFSU parking permit. You may not park on campus with only a DMV disabled placard or DMV plate.

Eligibility For Permit Through The DPRC

You must be registered with the Disability Programs and Resource Center (DPRC) and have a disability related need for parking. You must be currently enrolled either through the regular University or through Extended Education. If you are currently working on your thesis, you must provide a letter of proof from your thesis advisor.

Eligibility Information For Parking Fee Waiver

If you are a student with a verified disability and you meet the following criteria, you may be eligible for a parking permit fee waiver.

  1. Register with Disability Programs and Resource Center.
  2. Submit original proof to Disability Programs and Resource Center of a Disabled Person's license plate or placard issued under your name by the Department of Motor Vehicles. Note: Actual placards do not display the holder's name and so cannot be submitted as proof.
  3. Demonstrate financial need by submitting a Financial Aid Award letter with this form (if applicable).

You are not eligible for a waiver if you receive assistance for parking fees from the Department of Rehabilitation or any other agency.

If you meet the above criteria, please submit a Request for Waiver of Campus Parking Fee form available from Disability Programs and Resource Center located in building SS 110 or the Office of Parking and Transportation Services in the Corporation Yard.

Campus Regulations

Parking in an on-campus blue zone without a DMV placard or plate means a $275 fine. Parking is enforced 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. The SFSU permit only entitles you to park in regular (non-blue) spaces.

To use blue spaces, you must have BOTH a DMV placard and an SFSU permit.

DMV PLACARD/PLATE HOLDERS: You may park in any legal space in lots 2, 19, 20 and 25 regardless of permit assignment. In lot 6, before 5 p.m. you are restricted to blue zones only. After 5 p.m. you may park in any legal space.

Lot 2

Lot 2 is no longer a metered lot. You must have an SFSU permit to park in either the regular parking spaces or the 7 new blue spaces.

Lot 6

Before 5 p.m. you may park only in the blue zones. You must have a DMV placard or plate along with an SFSU permit. After 5 p.m. you may also park in non-blue zones.

Lot 19

This permit allows you access to Lots 19, 20, and 25.


Even if you have been issued a parking permit, if you forget to have it showing you may be ticketed. If you have a DMV placard but forget to have it showing when you used a blue space, you may be ticketed.
