Individual parking assignments for students are determined through a priority-based point system. This system assigns priority to students based on a number of factors, including commuting distance from UCLA. Graduate and professional students are given more points than undergraduates, however these additional points do not guarantee that law students will be awarded parking permits. Although most law students who have met the parking eligibility criteria (and have been timely with their parking permit applications) have generally been granted permits, they are not automatically guaranteed.

If living off campus, consider living near and using public transportation. During the school year, the BruinGO! Flash Pass Program allows currently enrolled UCLA students unlimited weekday travel on either the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus (BBB) or the Culver CityBus (CCB) with a valid BruinCard and a co-payment. Living near public transportation may translate to fewer points on your parking application, but it will provide you with a reasonable alternative should your parking application be denied.
