Residential Parking

SF State Housing strongly recommends that residents do not bring their vehicles as there are limited places to park on or near campus. There are parking spaces available in the housing community, however they are limited as well and offered only on an availability basis.

How to Apply for a Residential Parking Permit

SF State Housing uses a virtual parking permit system for residential parking, which uses your license plate for permit verification and to confirm that you are parked in your assigned parking space.

Students can request a residential parking permit when you submit your Move-in Confirmation form. Upon completion of this form, you will be sent an email from our permit portal vendor with your account login information and instructions on how to register for a residential parking permit. If you do not receive this email, contact the Housing Office at with your name and SF State Student ID.

Residential parking spaces are limited. We recommend that you complete your Move-in Confirmation form and purchase a parking permit as soon as possible.

PERMIT COST : $400/semester | due at the time you complete your parking registration
