The University of San Francisco has approximately 600 parking spaces available on campus. The vast majority of these spaces are used by faculty and staff. However, a handful of spaces are allocated to students each academic year.
USF has very limited parking and, as such, is unable to provide ample parking spaces for the majority of the USF community. Therefore, in accordance with San Francisco city planning, sustainability efforts, limited campus parking, and in order to reduce the amount of traffic in the residential neighborhood that surrounds the university, all students who live in any University housing facility are prohibited from bringing vehicles to campus and are ineligible to receive semester or annual parking permits.
During the fall and spring semesters, full time and 3-day part time permits are awarded through a lottery system to students living outside of a 3-mile radius from campus. During the summer, however, students may purchase any type of parking permit.
Parking On Campus
All parking lots on campus are available on a first-come, first-serve basis for faculty, staff, students, and guests with valid permits. Semester and annual permits can be purchased through iParq, and daily permits can be purchased from the Main Gate or Lone Mountain Gate kiosks for $20.
