Employee Carpool Program
If you are a current CSULB faculty or staff member with a paid semester or a non-expiring payroll deduction virtual permit, we highly encourage you to carpool to campus. Not only do carpool members share the cost of gas and vehicle expenses, but they can also avoid traffic by utilizing the many HOV lanes on the freeways leading to campus. Carpooling also qualifies you for points and benefits via the Employee Rideshare Program. Additional information is available on our Carpool webpage.
Employee Parking Refunds
Fall, Spring, Academic Year and Annual parking purchases may be refunded based on the value remaining on the virtual permit at the time of the refund. Employee parking depreciates at a rate proportional to the monthly rate of the virtual permit. A one-time $10.00 processing fee will also be deducted from the value of the virtual permit at the time of request. Refund requests will be accepted up to the date of full depreciation. Refund applications are available at the Cashiers Office on the first floor of Brotman Hall (BH-148). Summer virtual permits are nonrefundable.
Temporary university employees may purchase temporary parking from the Cashiers Office (BH-148). Questions regarding other temporary parking should be made at the Cashiers Office in Brotman Hall, or by calling 562.985.2222, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Employees leaving the university must cancel their virtual permits. Virtual permits can be canceled at the same time that exit paperwork is submitted. Employees on payroll deduction will be asked to complete a stop form, which will halt future CSULB parking payroll deductions. This will be especially important for individuals transitioning to another state agency.
Motorcycle Virtual Permits
Motorcycle parking is sold for each of the following semesters/sessions:
Motorcycle virtual permits can only be used in areas designated as motorcycle parking. Please view the campus map for all motorcycle parking locations.

Motorcycle parking is verified and enforced via the License Plate Recognition (LPR) permitting system.
In order to be eligible for a complimentary semester emeriti parking permit, CSULB emeritus faculty and staff must not receive compensation from the university. If an emeritus member is working for pay on campus in any capacity (e.g. FERP, retired annuitant, consultant, etc.) an Employee parking permit must be purchased at the Cashiers Office.
- Emeriti permits are available at the Visitor Information Center (VIC) and the Cashiers Office located on the first floor of Brotman Hall.
- Emeriti permits are valid in designated as Employee (E), General (G), and all three parking structures on campus.

Employees who are employed at two or more CSU campuses are only required to purchase a single parking permit. CSULB has established a process with each CSU campus in order to verify your parking purchase at multiple CSU locations. Please review our Concurrent Employment webpage for full program details.
