Parking & Directions

Maps & Directions to CSUSB


Students and parents & families who are registered to attend an Orientation session will receive a complimentary parking permit provided by Orientation and First Year Experience. This will be your valid parking permit ONLY during your attendance at orientation.

  • Parking permits are only valid for the parking lot assigned during the Orientation program. See below for designated parking lots by orientation program type.
  • Parking permits must be printed and clearly displayed on the front dashboard of the vehicle.
  • Parking permits will be e-mailed to attending students to their CSUSB email account two (2) days prior to their Orientation. 
  • Vehicles must be parked forward-facing in diagonal parking spaces on campus. Vehicles parked backwards in diagonal spaces may be issued a citation.

It is the student's and parents/family responsibility to have their parking permit and have it clearly displayed in their vehicles. Failure to park in the designated parking lot  and/or properly displaying the permit will result in a $54 parking citation.

Orientation and First Year Experience will not be responsible for any citations.
