Parking Services & Enforcement

The Southwestern College Governing Board has established policies and procedures to regulate the safe and orderly movement of vehicular traffic and the parking of vehicles on District property, to include the Chula Vista Campus, Higher Education Center at Otay Mesa, Higher Education Center at San Ysidro, Higher Education Center at National City, and the Crown Cove Aquatics Center on Silver Strand. All provisions of the California Vehicle Code are applicable on both paved and unpaved roadways.

The parking of vehicles and motorcycles is limited to designated parking areas. Parking permits are required on all vehicles that park on District property. It is the responsibility of every driver who enters District property to follow the California Vehicle Code and the Southwestern College District Parking rules and policies.  

Violations of the California Vehicle Code and/or the Southwestern College District Parking rules and policies are subject to citations, fines, towing, and impoundment, 24-hours a day, even when classes are not in session.
