Parking Regulations and Citation

Parking will be free for the 2022 Summer Semester. Please obey all other parking rules as parking outside marked spots or parking at prohibited spots (staff parking only, handicap parking only) will continue to be enforced. 

Section 21113A of the California Vehicle Code grant the authority for the Marin Community College Police Department to enforce ALL Vehicle Code violations on the parking lots and roadways within College District property. In addition, the District may adopt it's own regulations, to provide adequate parking and the safe movement of pedestrians and vehicles. 
The following information is posted at the entrance to college parking lots:

  • Valid properly displayed parking permits are required at all times (Sundays, and school holidays excluded.)
  • Staff permits must be displayed in designated staff areas
  • Park in marked stalls only
  • Obey posted signs and markings
