If you decide against getting a parking decal (or don't yet have one), you have some options.

  • Walk. SDSU has a beautiful campus.
  • Ride your bike. Campus has bike racks located outside the entrances to most of the buildings on campus.
  • If you have a car, city streets near campus allow street-side parking. Brookings city ordinances apply when parking on the streets off-campus.
