Drop-Off/Pick-Up Zones

This fall, we are launching improved Drop-Off/Pick-Up zones as well as a cellphone waiting area in order to provide greater convenience and safety to those picking up and dropping off students on campus. These dedicated zones will remove traffic congestion from trouble spots on campus roadways as well as increase pedestrian safety when entering or exiting their vehicles.

The new zones will be located near points of interest including upper campus academic buildings, the CSULB Library, University Theater and athletic venues. Each zone will also feature 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 will be created in the south turnaround on upper campus and will function similarly to what is seen at most airports. Drivers will be able to park in these spaces temporarily without purchasing a parking permit, make contact with their passengers, and then move to that 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.

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 vehicle congestion.
