Reserved Parking at University Towers

Residents of University Towers can rent a 24/7 reserved parking space in the lot adjacent to University Towers. Spaces are available for a semester or the full academic year.

Reserved spaces are available only to residents of University Towers and College Campanile Apartments. Proof of residence may be required. In support of sustainability initiatives, beginning in fall 2019, incoming freshmen who live on campus will not be permitted to bring a car the first year of study at SDSU. Parking Waivers can be granted to freshman with documented hardships. If you purchase a parking permit but are unable to obtain a Parking Waiver, the full purchase price of the permit will be refunded to you. You can obtain a Parking Waiver by going here and downloading the Freshman Parking Waiver Request Form. Completed forms must be returned by July 31, 2019.

Please note, if you plan to leave your car on campus over Winter Break, the best option is to purchase a permit for the Academic Year. That is the only way to have a valid permit over the Winter Break.


  • $285 – Spring 2020 (January 21, 2020 – May 15, 2020)
  • $150 – Summer 2020 (May 15, 2020 – July 31, 2020)


The space you rent will be yours and yours alone 24 hours a day.

Your permit is only valid for your space at University Towers. It cannot be used at other campus parking lots.

Permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis with spaces assigned in the order received.

You can pick up your parking permit at the parking office on the first floor of University Towers. Bring a photo ID.
