Contra Costa College provides on-campus parking for students and staff. You must have a permit to park anywhere on campus, whether in a parking lot or on any streets or roads on campus, including Campus Drive and Mission Bell Drive. At enrollment, you should receive a copy of the parking rules and regulations, with a map denoting parking areas for students. Additional copies are available from the Admissions & Records Office or from the cashier in SSC-115. Anyone who parks on campus will be held accountable for knowing these rules and regulations.
DMV Permitted Blue Parking Zones: Special parking spaces are designated for disabled persons who have DMV permits. If you are temporarily disabled, you may obtain a temporary permit from the DMV with a medical authorization from your doctor. Disabled persons with permits may park in any legal parking space on campus. It is a parking violation to park in a disabled-designated space without a permit.
Parking regulations are enforced 24 hours a day, beginning at 7:00 a.m. Monday and ending at 5:00 p.m. Friday. They are not enforced on the weekends or on legal holidays. During the summer term, the college does not enforce parking regulations on Fridays. Students who park in faculty/staff lots will be ticketed. Anyone who parks in a non-legal spot or a red zone at any time may be ticketed.
