Carpool Parking

Student, staff and faculty not living in Chico may apply for carpool parking.  Carpool passes are complementary with proof of having a paid campus parking permit on file.  The carpool pass must always be properly displayed on a registered vehicle in order to park in designated stalls.


Stalls are located on the first floor of the parking structure located at the corner of W. 2nd Street and Cherry Street.  Access is first-come, first-served.  Stalls are restricted for carpool pass holders Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  After 5:00 p.m. the stalls are open for any paid campus parking permit.
