CLARIFICATION: Student parking passes can only be used in “student lots” not every parking lot.
As most students anticipate their first day of school, CSUN’s Parking and Transportation Services, along with the CSUN Police Department, prepare for the return of student parking problems during the first few weeks of the semester.
“Traditionally, the spring semester is not as hectic or heavy as the fall semester,” said Christina Villalobos, CSUN’s special assistant to the Chief of Police & public information officer.
She said that there are not as many first-time students in the spring as there are in the fall.
However, she advises that all students look out for multiple campus intersections being directed by parking officers and long waits in the parking structures during the first two weeks of school.
As school will be starting on a Tuesday, she states that Tuesdays and Thursdays are the busiest days during any semester.
Parking and transportation Capt. Alfredo Fernandez said, “The best thing to do especially during the first week of school is to allow yourself some extra time up to forty-five minutes wouldn’t be overkill.”
