Upcoming Parking Impact

 

Career Fair Parking Traffic Impact

There are career fair events take place on Monday, 09/16/19 through Wednesday, 09/18/19.  As a result of these events, parking and traffic on main campus will be affected.  You are encouraged to use alternative forms of transportation, if at all possible, such as public transit, biking or walking. In addition, we highly recommend that you book parking spots with ParkStash every day especially during times when SJSU garages are highly impacted and are at FULL capacity. ParkStash offers guaranteed parking spots in vicinity of campus hosted by churches, restaurants, local businesses, hotels and individual homeowners which can be booked for a nominal fee via the ParkStash app.  For questions regarding the app, please contact ParkStash directly at 408-320-9765.

Effective 09/04/19, parking pay stations take exact change only.  No change is dispensed.  No refunds for overpayment transactions.  Make sure you have exact cash amount if you pay cash via pay stations.  Pay stations except Visa and Mastercard.

Perimeter Parking

Attention: As of 08/15/2019, SJSU permits are NOT VALID on On-street parking around the campus.

Virtual parking permits for new permit purchases 

Effective July 1, 2019, Parking Services at San Jose State University will start using virtual permits for students, MPP’s, Confidential employees, Auxiliary employees, Emeritus faculties, visitors, contractors, and vendors. 

Virtual permits allow you to park in your designated area without being required to display a physical permit.  With virtual permits, you will NOT need to come to Parking Services office to pick up your permit or wait for a physical permit to arrive in the mail. The license plate registered when purchasing your parking session will become your virtual parking permit, and your permit will be valid as soon as the first effective date of your permit. For more information, please visit Virtual Permit page.

2019 Student Virtual Parking Permits

2019 Student Commuter and Student Housing virtual parking permits are available for purchase through SJSU Parking Services Online and at the Parking Services office starting July 15, 2019.

Virtual permits allow you to park in your designated area without being required to display a physical permit.  The license plate registered when purchasing your parking session will become your virtual parking permit. As each vehicle’s license plate is used as your parking permit, license plates must be registered precisely to avoid being issued a citation. Errors in license plate registration are the responsibility of the registrant and will cause the issuance of a violation. You can register up to three vehicles on your permit. Only one vehicle is allowed on campus at a time.  Paid parking session is required at all times when parking on campus. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  License Plate Recognition (LPR) verifies parking session in all garages and lots.  For additional information visit SJSU Virtual Permit FAQ.

Please note: The parking permits sold through the online ordering portal are virtual permits based on the vehicle license plate. Customers will NOT receive a physical permit. Also, Bursar’s office will no longer sell parking permit.

2019 Employee Parking Permits

Most 2019 Annual, Academic, and Fall Semester physical parking permits are available for purchase starting August 1, 2019 through the Parking Online Services website and at the Parking Services office.  All employee permit types are available for purchase at the Parking Services Office.

Employees currently on a pre-tax payroll deduction parking plan may pick up their new annual parking permit or multi-year parking permit at the Parking Services office. 

Virtual permits for employees

Due to the complex nature of the virtual permitting system and the need to resolve pre-rollout issues, Parking Services will delay the use of virtual parking permits for some employees until further notice. The virtual permits will be valid for MPP’s, Confidential employees, Auxiliary employees and Emeritus only.

Except for the classes of employees noted above, if you have already registered your vehicles for the virtual parking permits, please note that the permit will NOT be in effect. Your current parking permit will be valid until August 30, 2019. Starting August 5, 2019, you will have to stop by the Parking Services Office, located on the first floor of the University Police Department building, to receive/purchase a physical permit.
