PARKING DECALS

REMEMBER: Parking is extremely challenging on the SMC Main campus. Students are encouraged to park at the Bundy Shuttle lot or Airport Arts parking overflow. Parking is especially challenging the first two weeks of school. Be sure to allow extra time for parking and transportation so that you do not lose your spot in class.

Students who drive to SMC must display a valid parking pass at all times. Students may purchase a decal to park on the main campus or request a FREE decal to park at one of the satellite campuses.  Parking decals must be displayed in the front windshield, lower drivers side corner, above the vehicle identification number. Vehicles without properly displayed parking decals will be subject to a parking citiation.
