Parking and UCSC Maps

For visiting teams and officials, parking passes will have either been sent to you by the team coach or they will have them waiting for you at the event. All visiting teams and officials must have a parking permit. All others must pay for parking Monday through Friday. If you park in either the West or East Remote lots, you will need a parking permit between the hours of 7:30am-5pm. If you park in the Upper West or East parking lots, you will need a permit from 7am-8pm. If you need to purchase a permit, please visit the Information Kiosk located near the main entrance of campus.  For more information about parking pass rates, parking on campus, and transportation on campus please visit the Transportation & Parking Services website.

For events taking place on the East side of campus (the main venue for Tennis, Soccer, and Swimming), please park at the East Remote lot. Shuttles make regular stops there and it is a short walk up to the East athletics facilities, including the East Field House, soccer fields, East tennis courts, and swimming pool.

For events at the West Field House at Rachel Carson College (our on-campus venue for Volleyball and Basketball), you have two options for parking your vehicle.

1) The LOWER Rachel Carson/Oakes parking lot.

This lot is located just off Heller Drive on your right going up to Rachel Carson. From there, it is a short walk up to Rachel Carson (formerly College 8) and the West Field House. Follow the stairs that split the dorms of the college. Ticketing hours are between 8am-8pm.

2) The West Remote parking lot.

It is located just before the lower Rachel Carson College lot going up Heller Drive. Campus signs will direct you. Campus shuttles routinely make stops at the West Remote lot and will take you to Rachel Carson College along its regular route. Ticketing hours are between 8am-5pm.
