Parking Information for Special Events

Special Event Permits

While parking on campus, a valid USD permit must be displayed at all times. Permits are available at the Main Entrance or West Entrance Kiosks. Please ensure that the permit is fully displayed with the date issued visible at all times in your vehicle. If the kiosk is not staffed, a permit may be obtained at the Parking Services Office, during regular business hours in University Center 102 or at Public Safety, after business hours at Hughes Administration 150.

    • Events that take place on multiple days within the same week, guests will need to purchase daily permits at the rate of $5.00/day or $25/week.
            • Complimentary Visitor permits are available for a guest who intends to be on campus briefly to drop off or pick up someone; however, the time on campus using these permits will not be deducted from the length of time needed for the parking permit being purchased.
            • Event coordinators are responsible for making arrangements for parking permits two (2) weeks prior to the arrival date. You may purchase in bulk by contacting or call (619)260-4518 to discuss details, including how you may advise your guests to purchase their own permits directly.
