Participants in UCLA Summer Sessions, UCLA and visiting students alike, can report safety concerns or any suspicious activities/behavior directly to UCPD at 310-825-1491 at any time. For emergencies, always call 911.

Summer Sessions parking permits will be available beginning May 1 on a first-come, first-served basis. You may apply for a parking permit on the Transportation Services website.
You may purchase a permit for the summer term. A term permit is generally more cost effective and convenient than paying for parking on a daily basis. Please contact Transportation and Parking Services for permit fee information.
Daily permits are sold on a space-available basis at Parking and Information booths located throughout the UCLA campus. Motorcycles, mopeds and motor scooters do not require parking permits, but may park only in designated areas.
