First-Year Students - Please note First Year students at Santa Clara University who live in a campus residence hall are NOT PERMITTED to bring cars on to campus for their Fall through Spring quarters. We strongly discourage First-Year Students from bringing their cars and attempting to park along city streets; this only serves to increase traffic flow problems in the neighborhood and will intrude on surrounding residents and neighbors. Read SCU's First Year Student Resident Parking Policy!

Exceptions to the Policy- Students who transfer from another college or university and have completed a full school year are allowed to buy parking permits. First-Year Students who can provide adequate evidence they would face hardship without an on-campus parking permit are able to apply for a permit by filling out a Hardship Request Application found on our website. Read SCU's First Year Exceptions to the Policy!

Dear 2019-2020 University Villas Residents,
The Pre-Arrival Resident Permit Request Form becomes available at 12:00 pm (NOON) on Wednesday, August 28, 2019!

There is a 2:1 ratio of University Villas residents versus the number of actual parking spaces; in other words, there are twice as many residents who reside at University Villas than there are available parking spaces!

Complete the form as soon as it becomes available to increase your chances of receiving a University Villas parking lot permit. The allocation & availability of spaces will be on a first-come, first-served basis. University Villas - D parking permits will cost $320 per year and permit students to park within the University Villas parking lot. Those University Villas residents who are unable to purchase the University Villas parking permit will be eligible to purchase a University Villas - FV permit for the south Schott Stadium parking lot which costs $260 per year. The allocation & availability of spaces for the overflow Schott Stadium parking lot will also be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
