Parking and Traffic Regulations

A current semester student parking permit or a daily parking permit is required for all LBCC lots. Student permits and daily permits do not authorize parking in staff areas, metered parking, or other reserved areas except where posted otherwise. LAC offers additional parking in the Veterans Stadium Parking Lot. Parking permits can be purchased each semester during registration at the time the College Services Card is purchased or may be obtained later at the Cashier’s Office.

The following rules are enforced to ensure the rights of permit holders, as well as to provide for the safety of people and property:

  • Parking permits are required at all times in LAC and PCC parking lots. For students who do not wish to purchase a semester parking permit, daily parking permits are available at both campuses. Parking permit machines at LAC are located in lots E, F, M, O, P, and Veterans Stadium. Two machines are located on each level of the parking structure. The PCC machines are located in Lots 1, 2, and 10 with two machines located on each level of the parking structure.
  • Metered parking is available in Lots G, and H and on Lew Davis Street at LAC, and in Lot 2 at PCC. Thirty-minute visitor parking zones are also located along the north curb of Carson Street for LAC.
  • Semester parking permits must be affixed to the lower-left corner of the inside windshield so it is visible from the front of the vehicle.
  • Student permits and Daily permits do not authorize parking in staff spaces, metered stalls/parking, or other reserved parking spaces except where posted otherwise.

  • All vehicles must be parked between the lines of a designated parking space only. Backing into parking stalls is not permitted on diagonal stalls. Motorcycles and mopeds are to be parked only in areas specifically posted for their use (LAC campus lot C, F, H, and parking structure; PCC campus lot 2 and parking structure). Operators must purchase a current semester parking permit and keep it in their possession. Motorcycles and mopeds may not be driven on campus or parked on sidewalks. Violators will be cited.
  • A permit does not guarantee a parking space in the parking lot of choice. Students are advised to allow ample time to find parking. At LAC, additional parking is available in the Veterans Stadium parking lot.
  • Citations are issued by the Long Beach Parking Services Department to automobiles, motorcycles, and mopeds that do not display a properly placed, current parking permit. Students parked in staff areas or other specially designated areas will also be cited.
  • No adjustments will be made for parking citations at the Long Beach Police Department College Unit. Individuals wishing to contest citations must do so by following the instructions on the citation and by calling 562-570-6822 or
  • Students, staff, or faculty with state-issued disabled placards are to park in marked handicapped spaces. If a handicapped space is not available, parking is allowed in any other student or staff space. Disabled permits are not valid in carpool spaces or other reserved spaces.
  • Regulations pertaining to parking can vary from lot to lot. Each driver is responsible for reading the parking regulations that are posted at the entrance of each parking lot.
  • Parking is free in the Veterans Stadium Lot at LAC and Lot 10 at PCC the week prior to and the first week of the semester only. Permits are required during intersessions at all times.

Vehicles MUST also have CAV decal displayed that is issued from DMV visible on the vehicle. Failure to do both of the above requirements will result in the issuance of a parking citation.
