Alternative Parking

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.
  • Short term parking: Pay lots
  • Brookings streets: City streets near campus allow street-side parking. Brookings city ordinances apply when parking on the streets off-campus.
