Parking & Transportation Overview

Campus Parking Regulations

All auto, truck or van drivers who use campus parking facilities during scheduled class hours and final examination periods are required to pay a parking permit fee. (Motorcycles are excluded if parked in designated motorcycle parking.) Students enrolled exclusively in weekend or off-campus classes are exempt. The parking fee is $51 for the Fall Semester and $51 for the Spring Semester. A two semester Fall/Spring Parking Permit may be purchased for $92. The parking fee for the Summer Session is $26. Parking permits may be transferred from one vehicle to another. One replacement permit may be purchased for $51 if the initial permit is lost or stolen.

One day parking permits valid in student lots only are available for $2 (currency and coins only) from permit machines located in parking lots A, C, F, G, L, N, and P. Visitor parking is reserved for visitors and guests to our campus, staff and students are prohibited from using these lots. Visitor parking is available for $00.25 per each 15 minutes (currency and coins only) from permit machines located in Visitor Lots D and M. Refer to campus maps for permit machine locations.

Students may pay for their parking permits at the time of WebSMART registration. Parking permits will be mailed to students if they register for classes at least one week before the start of the semester. If they register for classes within one week of the start of the semester, they will need to pick up their parking permits at the Cashier's Office in Building 2. For more information about obtaining a parking permit, please visit the SMCCD Public Safety Department website.

Day and evening students must park in student lots only. All staff lots are reserved for staff at all times. Refer to the campus map for parking lot locations. While parking in Skyline College campus parking lots, students must obey all campus, local and state regulations. Backing into parking spaces is prohibited, and violators will be cited.

At the beginning of each term, a grace period of two weeks (one week for summer session) will be in effect in student parking lots only. The grace period does not apply to staff lots and other restricted areas. Parking spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, a parking permit is not a guarantee of a parking space.

Skyline College and the San Mateo County Community College District do not accept liability for vandalism, theft or accidents. Use of campus parking facilities is at the user's risk. However, any such incidents should be reported to the Campus Public Safety Office, Building 6, Room 6106, (650) 738-4199.
