The VCCCD Police Department, in conjunction with the Student Business Offices of each campus, is responsible for issuing and controlling all parking permits for the college campuses and the District Administration Center. Lost or stolen parking permits must be promptly reported to the VCCCD Police Department on the campus where the permit was purchased. Valid staff and student permits issued at the Moorpark, Oxnard, and Ventura campuses, as well as the District Administration Center, are honored at all locations.


Regular full- and part-time faculty or classified personnel may obtain a staff parking permit without charge by going through the MyVCCCD portal, clicking on the Employee Services link under the Work Life tab, and then clicking on the Order Staff Parking Permits link. Permits are processed and sent to the police station where the employee works. A staff permit may not be sold, given, or loaned to anyone else. It is reserved solely for the use of the staff member to whom it was issued.

Temporary staff members (e.g. provisionals or professional experts), contractors, and vendors may obtain temporary parking permits at no charge from the VCCCD Police Department, either by contacting the station located at their college or by contacting the Police Services office at (805) 652-7751.

All students may obtain semester-long parking permits online only, by logging into their MyVCCCD portal and paying the prescribed parking fee.

Daily parking permits cost $2.00 each and can be purchased at the parking permit dispensers located in many of the parking lots.

Official vehicles displaying federal, state, or county license plates are presumed to be on official business and do not require parking permits.


A valid parking permit is required for all vehicles parking on campus. Grace periods may be implemented at the beginning of each semester. A semester parking decal or valid daily permit MUST be PROPERLY displayed on all cars parked on campus.

LOST OR STOLEN PARKING DECALS ARE NOT REPLACEABLE. Notify the VCCCD Police Department immediately if your permit is stolen.

It is the responsibility of every driver to know and obey the VCCCD and California Vehicle Code parking regulations. The parking regulations can be found at on our Parking Regulations page.

Semester permits issued by all three colleges are valid for their one semester only. Permits shall be affixed to the inside, lower-left corner of the front windshield. Hangers are not permitted, nor is placing/resting a semester permit directly on your dashboard. It is your responsibility to ensure the permit is properly displayed and visible at all times. FAILURE TO PROPERLY DISPLAY A PERMIT WILL RESULT IN A PARKING CITATION.

Parking permits may not be sold, exchanged, given away, duplicated, or purchased from any person or agency other than the VCCCD. Any vehicle displaying a lost, stolen, or altered decal is subject to citation and/or impoundment.

On motorcycles and motor scooters, the permit must be attached to the left front shock bar/fork.

Temporary parking permits are issued by the VCCCD Police Department to visitors, guests, vendors, and other people who may have business on campus. Such special permits should be displayed on top of the front dashboard inside the windshield, with the written side up. Again, failure to properly display a permit will result in citation.
