Please view parking updates on a regular basis to avoid receiving a parking citation while parking on the SDSU campus. All updates and news will be featured below.

Overnight Parking & Snow Removal in Lots

The University Student Union pay lot, all reserved, and commuter lots must be vacated from 2am -5am daily, regardless of weather conditions. This policy will be enforced and all motorists—including campus visitors—who are in violation of the policy will be ticketed.

Vehicles parked in the above lots from 2-5 a.m. when snow-removal activities are underway will be towed at the owner’s expense. Students and employees should advise guests accordingly. During snow-removal activities, staff and students required to be on campus overnight that have been issued an after-hours permit must park in the lot 166 (West Dykhouse Stadium). If you have questions regarding parking, please contact the parking office at (605) 688-7275.

Parking Meters on Campus

Parking Services has been approached by many customers about a lack of pick-up/drop-off locations in the core of campus, so in response to our customers we have installed 12 single-space parking meters in the interior campus lots.

Single-space parking meters are located outside of Yeager Hall, Wagner Hall, Morrill Hall and Solberg Hall/AME. These locations will help individuals who may need to visit Yeager Hall, DePuy Military Hall, Avera Health & Science Center, Wagner Hall, Morrill Hall, Communications Center, Old Horticulture and/or Solberg Hall/AME.

Meter rates are $0.75 for 30 minutes and will currently accept coin (quarters only) and credit cards. These metered stalls are open to everyone but are intended for short term parking to visit above buildings.

Any questions about the meters, please contact Parking Services at 605-688-7275.
