Drop-Off/Pick-Up Zones

In Fall 2023, Parking and Transportation Services launched improved Drop-Off/Pick-Up zones as well as a new cellphone waiting area. These new zones and features will decrease traffic congestion from known trouble spots of vehicle congestion on campus as well as increase pedestrian safety and provide greater convenience for those dropping-off/picking-up individuals on campus.

These new zones are located near points of high interest including upper campus academic buildings, the CSULB Library, University Theater as well as athletic venues. Each zone features high visibility signage, way-finding markers and ADA accessible ramps.

Zone locations:

  1. South Campus Turnaround
  2. Liberal Arts Buildings/West Campus Dr. 
  3. Family and Consumer Sciences/Beach Dr.
  4. Walter Pyramid
  5. CPAC
  6. East Campus Turnaround/Power Plant

Cellphone Waiting Area

In addition to these improved Drop-Off/Pick-Up areas, a new cellphone waiting area has been created in the South Turnaround on upper campus and will function similarly to what is seen at most airports. Drivers are now able to park in these spaces temporarily without purchasing a parking permit, make contact with their passengers, and then move forward to a zone on campus to complete their pick-up. It is important that individuals always stay with their vehicles when utilizing these spaces and do not remain past the 15-minute time limit. Unattended vehicles will be subject to citation.

To view all Drop-Off Zones and new Cellphone Waiting Area, please visit our interactive campus map.

We hope these new changes will make it easier, safer and more convenient for students and visitors to be dropped off and picked up around our campus as well as remove traffic and unsafe pedestrian situations in areas of high traffic.
