Students who drive to SMC may purchase a decal to park on the main campus or request a FREE decal to park at one of the satellite campuses. Please note: The Academy of Entertainment & Technology (AET) campus is currently closed for construction. Visitor parking for the main campus is available in Lot 6—located at 14th and Pico—for a flat fee, unless prior arrangements have been made through Campus Police. All students and visitors are expected to follow SMC’s parking rules and regulations.
Street parking in the surrounding neighborhoods is restricted on most weekdays and evenings. SMC parking decals are NOT VALID AT ANY TIME on neighborhood streets. PLEASE BE COURTEOUS TO OUR NEIGHBORS at all times by keeping the volume of your sound system, conversations, and other noise to a minimum.
An important caution: Because car alarms are disruptive to other students and our neighbors, cars with activated alarms in the SMC parking areas will be TOWED IMMEDIATELY at YOUR expense.
Please display all parking decals in the front windshield, lower driver’s side corner, above the vehicle identification number (VIN). If a parking decal is not visible, you will be subject to a parking citation.
Parking information for special events at SMC may vary based on the specific event. Please refer to parking instructions included in the event announcement.
