Parking and Transportation

Paid parking and parking assignments are enforced Monday through Friday, from 8am to 8pm. California Vehicle Code (CVC) regulations and timed spaces are enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The University cooperates with local, state, and federal agencies. Vehicles found in violation of such agencies' regulations are subject to their independent enforcement as they would be on any public street. Parking and Transportation requires that all drivers review the University's Rules & Policies prior to parking on-campus. Vehicles not in compliance may be cited and/or towed at the owner's expense.


LMU AQMD Commuter Survey

Dear LMU Community Member,

The Air Quality Management District (AQMD) requires employers with over 250 employees to file an annual clean air plan accompanied by a fee, which is based on the University’s impact on the environment. The requirement includes an annual survey that demonstrates employees’ commuting methods over a single week.

Please complete this survey to indicate how you commuted to work during the week of October 26-30. If you did not commute or were off that week, your responses are still needed to meet LMU’s filing requirement.

We must achieve a 60% minimum response rate to avoid a penalty fee, so we are asking for everyone’s participation (including student employees). A greater survey response rate reduces the overall fee paid by the University.

As a thank you, all participants who complete their survey by Friday, November 13, will be entered into a random drawing to win one of Sixty (60) $25 Amazon gift cards!

To take the survey, click HERE.

Paper surveys are also available for pick-up at the Parking Office in University Hall, Suite 1766 (main elevator lobby) in both Spanish and English. Paper surveys need to be returned completed to the Parking Office by 5 pm on November 13 to be considered eligible for the gift card raffle.

All information entered into the survey is kept confidential. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 310.338.1681 or Thank you for your support!
