Parking Information

Parking at RCCD colleges is similar to parking in any busy metropolitan or downtown area. Moreno Valley College offers a mix of student and staff permit parking, pay-by-hour, and limited short-term visitor parking.

Reviewing the information about parking regulations, permits, procedures and tips on this page will help make on-campus parking a less stressful experience.


The fall 2019 term starts on Monday, August 26 and ends Saturday, December 14.

The parking grace period for fall 2019 is August 26 - September 8.

Parking grace periods are for the first two weeks of spring and fall semesters, and first week of summer session. Winter session does not require a parking permit.

RCCD parking policy requires the purchase of a parking permit at all district locations. However, RCCD knows the new semester can present an array of parking challenges. During this hectic time, RCCD offers a grace period for parking enforcement. Everyone can park in a designated parking stall without having to worry about permit enforcement until the grace period ends.

Parking availability is determined by the color coded stalls in the parking areas of the campus. White striped parking stalls are reserved for students and visitors. Yellow striped parking stalls are reserved for faculty and staff only. Everyone is required to park in the appropriate colored stalls, even during the grace period. Parking in the correct stall will ensure there will be no enforcement of the parking permit provisions during the grace period.

On the monday following a parking grace period, RCCD will resume its enforcement of the parking permit policy. Be sure to get your permit on or before the expiration of the grace period.

Parking permits are available on-line through the RCCD WebAdvisor. Additional information about parking can be found on the RCCD website.  Parking citations will be issued for violators of the RCCD parking policy.


Parking Basics

Who Must Have A Permit?

Every vehicle that parks on any campus must either display a permit or pay the meters. Visitors to the District must park in the white striped student stalls, in metered parking, or marked timed spaces, wherever available. Visitors may obtain a temporary parking permit from the DSAPPS College (222-8522) or any College Safety and Police Department located on each college.

What Does It Cost?

Permits for both students and staff are $50 for the Fall and Spring, $25 for Summer semesters. See Parking Permits, Meters, and Fines for more details.

Where Can I Park?

Each lot has a specific designation for who can or cannot park there. There are also areas (such as disabled spots, fire zones, loading areas, etc.) that are posted for the exclusive use by certain persons or vehicles. Board Policy spells out in detail such areas and restrictions. Parking regulations may be enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week including all rules of the California Vehicle Code. These include, but are not limited to, disabled and fire zones, vehicle registration and any other area marked as enforced 24 hours a day.

Why Must I Pay to Park?

The fees collected from the sale of parking permits are used to fund college and student services. Fees also fund police officers, safety escort services, lot maintenance and new lot construction on all three colleges.

Employee Parking

RCCD employees are eligible to park in yellow-striped faculty/staff parking stalls or white-striped stalls with a valid faculty/staff parking permit. Employees are not authorized to possess or use any other type of permit. The only exception to this are those temporary permits issued by Parking Services for those who already have a current staff permit. No vehicle may park in a yellow-striped stall without a faculty/staff permit or valid temporary permit. Student employees are not eligible to purchase faculty/staff parking permits.

RCCD Police enforces parking regulations 7 days a week, 24 hours a day at all college campuses, education sites, and district locations. All vehicles must display a valid District permit, a District- or College-issued temporary permit, or use metered parking any time the vehicle is parked at a college or district location (AP 6750).

Staff permits are valid in any staff and student parking space on campus. Staff can register to receive a staff carpool permit from Parking Services. Contact us at (951) 571-6190 for more information. Staff may also have the cost of an annual permit deducted from their paycheck on a monthly basis.
