Permits & Parking On Campus

SDSU requires a valid paid parking permit to be properly registered to a vehicle's license plate at all times, inclusive of evenings, weekends, and holidays.  There is no grace period for parking at SDSU.  Vehicle registration is required for all virtual parking permit purchases through the Aztec Parking Portal, the PayByPhone mobile application, and the pay stations.

Permits are non-transferrable and may not be shared with other vehicles.  Parking in violation of regulations may result in a parking citation.

Please review our Campus Map for parking areas.

New Vehicles

California issues temporary plates for new vehicles. Please enter your temporary license plate when registering your vehicle with your purchased permit. Once your permanent plate is received, complete the License Plate Change Request Form to update your license plate.
