Parking Information

Is parking free on UCSB campus for the workshop? If not, where do I get a parking permit and where would be the best spot to park?  You should park in a parking lot designated for “Short-Term Visitor” parking. It is recommended to use Lot 27 or Lot 22 (a parking ramp) immediate adjacent to Lot 27.

Once your car is parked, you should look for a parking permit dispenser. They look like this: https://artsandlectures.ucsb.edu/img/pageimage_parking.jpg

Purchase a permit for the day and then place the permit in a visible location beneath the driver’s side windshield.
