To avoid paying for a parking permit each day, students may pay a quarterly or annual fee for a parking decal that can be transferred from one vehicle windshield to another. (The motorcycle decal goes on the bumper.)
The quarterly decal must be purchased each quarter, and a separate decal is necessary for summer. You are eligible for a refund only if you return the unused decal to the Cashier's Office by the second Friday of the quarter (first Friday of summer session), or if all your classes are cancelled by the college.
Quarterly Parking Fee
- Automobiles (cars or trucks): $26.65
- Motorcycles or mopeds: $15
Summer Parking Fee
- Automobiles (cars or trucks): $20
- Motorcycles or mopeds: $15
Annual Parking Fee
- All vehicles: $90 if purchased at the start of summer session; $70 if purchased at the start of fall quarter; $50 if purchased at the start of spring quarter.
- This fee is nonrefundable.
BOG Fee Waiver / California College Promise
- Recipients of the California College Promise Fee Waiver, previously known as the BOG Fee Waiver, may purchase a parking decal for $13.15 per quarter.
Parking Decal Must be Ordered Online
Student parking decals must be ordered online through MyPortal. Upon completion of the online purchase, you will receive a purchase confirmation via email or text message. You will also be provided with a printable receipt and an interim permit, good for 15 days from the date of purchase, that you can print out. The interim permit is for temporary display until your decal arrives in the mail. All decals are mailed to the delivery address specified on the order.
When you purchase a permit online, you will be charged a shipping and handling fee of $2.50 to $6. You can avoid the handling charge by paying for your parking permit in person at the Cashier’s Office counter in the Registration and Student Services Building. However, you still need to pre-order the decal online before you can pay for the permit. You will be given your interim permit at the time you pay the permit fee. To avoid waiting in line, we recommend paying before the Monday when classes start.
- You will be required to pay for a new parking decal if yours is stolen, lost or damaged, or if you entered an incorrect or incomplete delivery address when ordering.
Visitors may park free for a maximum of 30 minutes in designated areas (see below) or purchase a one-day parking permit (see below). Visitors who have reason to park at De Anza regularly may purchase a quarterly or annual permit online.
You can purchase a one-day parking permit for $3 from the yellow machines located in each student parking lot and in the Flint Center and Stelling garages.
The machines will accept credit cards or nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollar bills – but they will not give change. One-day permits are valid in student lots only.
There are parking spaces with no-permit required for short-term parking needs in these lots
- Lot A, near the Registration & Student Services Building (Admissions Office, Bookstore, other offices)
- Lot C, near the Physical Education Quad
See our Campus Map page for help finding these lots.
There are a limited number of reserved car pool spaces available in parking lots A, C, D and E. You must apply to the Foothill-De Anza District Police for a car pool parking permit to use one of these spaces. Download and complete the application for a student car pool permit or an employee car pool permit.
If you have a Department of Motor Vehicles disability placard or license plate, you don’t need to buy a De Anza parking permit. You may park in any student or staff space, provided that your DMV placard is visible through your windshield.
Every De Anza parking lot has designated spaces for cars with disability parking placards or license plates. Some disability spaces are extra wide and intended for people using wheelchairs. For more information, see our Disability Parking page.
The parking fee for special events on campus, including the Flea Market and some Flint Center events, is $5. Parking for select Flint Center events is $10.
All yellow-striped parking stalls are for faculty and staff parking only. Cars must display a parking decal provided by the Foothill-De Anza Community College District.
All fees are subject to change without notice.
