Parking

Parking Structure

Parking is available in the parking facility located at 919 Albany Street.

Students may obtain parking privileges by completing the Parking Form which will be electronically mailed to continuing students in mid-July and in late July for new incoming students. The Parking Form will be made active when the registration period is open.  Students who do not complete the parking form by the deadline of Sunday, August 10, 2014, must do so in Campus Planning, during the first week of school to sign up for parking. The parking form must be completed by all students to indicate whether or not they want parking.  If continuing students do not respond, their parking card will be deactivated from the system.  If you will be taking public transportation, you should indicate "No Parking" on your form which will update your form and will complete the process.

The parking fee for the 2014-2015 academic year is for the period August 1, 2014 through July 31, 2015. The parking fee is $348.00 per semester (10% City parking tax included) and will be billed to the student's account at the beginning of each new semester. PARKING FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. If a student elects parking in the Fall semester, it will be automatically renewed for the Spring semester and charged to his/her account. A student who does not elect parking must advise the Campus Planning Dept in writing by August 29, 2014 for the Fall semester and by January 23, 2015 for the Spring semester. Any changes to a student's parking status must be in writing and filed with Campus Planning, by the appropriate aforementioned dates for that semester.

Please complete the parking registration form by the Sunday, August 10 deadline so you will be able to access the parking facility August 18 (the first day of class)

Change of Vehicle Information for continuing students can be reported on the parking form or for all students after the August 10 deadline, to Campus Planning.

Students may park in all spaces except:

a. Faculty
b. Carpool (unless registered for carpool through Campus Planning)

c. Motorcycle area (motorcycles exempt)
d. Disabled (blue coded)

Student Parking Access and Validation Policy

  • All students who pay for continuous parking in the LLS parking structure are required to have a valid parking card issued by the Campus Planning office. Card swipes are used not only for access control but also to monitor who is on campus at any given time for security and emergency purposes.
  • All students without a parking card (including forgotten cards) and not on an approved guest list will have to pull a ticket. No payment will be required at the time of entry.
  • In the event that a student forgets his/her parking card, she/he should pull a parking ticket and bring it to the Campus Planning office for validation. Campus Planning will validate pulled tickets for two consecutive days only and up to three times per semester. After two consecutive days or after three occurrences per semester, the student will pay the daily rate for parking. If the student has lost their parking card, the replacement cost is $25.00 and is payable in cash or by check at the time the new card is issued in Campus Planning.
  • Any student who pulls a ticket and does not get a validation will pay the daily rate at the time they exit the parking structure.

Disabled Parking. Parking spaces are available for disabled members of the Law School community. To park or enter these spaces, a special placard must be obtained through the Department of Motor Vehicles or AAA and must be displayed at all times. Under California law, there can be no exceptions to this policy; otherwise, Loyola Law School would be cited by local authorities accordingly. Anyone parking a vehicle in the disabled area must have a valid Law School parking card or must pay the daily parking rate.

Motorcycle Parking. A limited number of special motorcycle parking spaces are available. The parking fee for these spaces is $216.00 per semester, including city tax. All the same rules apply to those described in "a." in the current Student Handbook except that a parking card and placard will not be provided. Motorcycle parking stickers will be provided and must be prominently displayed on the motorcycle. Those with these permits may enter by asking the parking attendant to lift the parking gate after providing the attendant with their last name and permit number. As with regular parking, a spot is not guaranteed and subject to availability at the time of parking. Should someone with a motorcycle permit desire to also park a car, they must either purchase a full price parking permit or pay the daily parking rate on the days they park a car. A document indicating the location of the designated motorcycle parking spots will be provided by Campus Planning when the permit is purchased. These spots are also specifically marked as such in the parking garage. A $50 ticket will be issued to any unregistered motorcycle found parked in the garage or to a motorcycle parking in any spot other than those marked as motorcycle parking.

Vehicle Size Limitations. All vehicles must be no larger than 80 inches wide, 223 inches long and 78 inches high. Due to space limitations, the Parking Structure cannot accommodate vehicles in excess of these dimensions.

Individuals exhibiting excessive speed will be cited accordingly. The penalty for exceeding the 5 m.p.h. speed limit is $50.00.

Responsibility For Citations and Moving Violations. The person to whom a vehicle is registered on-campus shall be responsible for any liability or damage claims, including parking and/or other traffic regulation citation penalties arising in connection with the possession and/or operation of the vehicle on campus.

Towing of Vehicles. Any vehicle parked in the parking facility in violation of Loyola Law School regulations, the California Vehicle Code or the Traffic and Fire Code of the City of Los Angeles, or registered vehicles with three or more unpaid citations will be towed from that location and impounded. The vehicle will be taken to such place for storage as the Loyola Law School Campus Planning Dept. may select. Prior to the vehicle being released, the expense of such impoundment and storage shall be paid by the owner or operator of the vehicle.

Loyola Law School and its employees shall not be held liable for loss or damage of any kind resulting from towing, impounding, or storage.

Liability. Loyola Law School is not responsible for and assumes no liability for damage or theft of any vehicle or its contents. Students should lock their vehicles and place valuable items in their trunks. Cars are not allowed to park overnight at any time.

As part of the consideration for the parking services furnished, students confirm and agree to the following statement:

"I agree to pay Loyola Law School all of the amount(s) for which I am liable/responsible by the appropriate due date(s) and any late fees that I may incur. I understand that if I elect to park in the parking facility and pay the parking fee in the Fall semester, I will automatically be charged the parking fee in the Spring semester unless otherwise specified."
