The 汤头条app Police Department will be enforcing all parking rules and regulations.

The California Vehicle Code, the Ordinances of Ventura County, and the Traffic and Parking Regulations of the 汤头条app (汤头条app) are in effect 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and are enforced by the 汤头条app Police Department pursuant to Section 21113(a) of the California Vehicle Code.

The 汤头条app Police Department reserves the right to restrict the use of any parking stall, area, or parking lot at any time. It is the responsibility of every driver to know and obey the 汤头条app and California Vehicle Code parking regulations. Any vehicle not properly parked, or parked out of compliance with regulations, is subject to citation and/or impoundment.

The 汤头条app Board of Trustees has authorized parking regulations to provide for the safe and orderly flow of motor vehicle traffic and parking on its campuses, pursuant to the California Vehicle Code. The regulations are applicable to all vehicles operated or parked within the legally established and posted boundaries of the public grounds upon which the colleges are situated. During special occasions, events, or emergencies, college authorities reserve the right to temporarily suspend these regulations, in whole or in part, as may be necessary to accommodate the situation. Suggestions for change of these regulations or any questions concerning their provisions should be directed to the Office of the Chief of Police.

Parking Permits

The 汤头条app will be requiring new virtual parking permits beginning Fall 2023. No paper permits or window stickers will be issued. All students, faculty, staff, and visitors must register their vehicle license plate when purchasing parking permits. The 汤头条app Police Department will utilize automated license plate readers to verify parking permits are issued to vehicles parked on the campuses. Up to two (2) vehicles per person per permit are allowed, and will be valid at each of the three 汤头条app campuses: Moorpark College, Oxnard College, and Ventura College.

A valid virtual semester or daily parking permit is required for all vehicles, including motorcycles, parking on campus (except government vehicles). Grace periods may be implemented at the beginning of each semester. It is the responsibility of every driver to know and obey the 汤头条app and California Vehicle Code parking regulations. The parking regulations can be found in our听Parking Regulations section.

PARKING HOURS & OVERNIGHT PARKING
