Parking permits required day one

The two-week grace period for parking in campus lots is being eliminated for the fall 2012 semester throughout the San Diego Community College District.

City College, Mesa College, and Miramar College will all be affected.

Parking permits will be required for parking in student lots on the first day of fall classes, Aug. 20, 2012.

Suggested by the United Student Council, this action was made in the hope that the additional revenue will reduce the need for increased student semester parking fees to $40 or more, according to a press release.

Students who purchase their parking permits online before Aug. 13 will receive them in the mail before the first day of class. Those purchased later must be picked up at the campus police station.

Daily permits can be obtained from machines found on levels 2, 5 and 6 of the V-building parking structure for $1 per hour up to $5 per day maximum.

Student opinion on the matter varies. “I don’t think they should do it,” says Isabella Garcia, a biology major, “they should give students more time to pay for it.”

Though some say they will be unaffected. “I don’t really care,” says Vannatony Sao, small business major. “I don’t depend on the free parking. I always buy my pass before the semester.”

Student permits can be purchased through Reg-e on the SDCCD website at
