Campus parking facilities are not supported by taxpayer dollars, but are self-supported. As a self-supported operation, 100% of the budget comes from permit sales and the enforcement budget comes from citation revenues.

Pursuant to Title 5, Article 7, Section 42201(a) of the California Code of Regulations, the University president may grant permission to park on campus, "to those persons who have paid a parking fee." This includes students, staff, faculty, and University visitors.

The State of California, CSU, Chico (and its employees) shall not be held responsible or liable for any damage by loss or theft, fire, accident, or any other cause whatsoever to any vehicle, or contents thereof, that occurs on University property.
