If you decide against getting a parking permit (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.
- Union Pay Lot: East of the Union is a centrally-located pay lot.
- Brookings Streets: City streets near campus allow street-side parking. Brookings city ordinances apply when parking on the streets off-campus.
