Student Parking

printer-friendly version

Western University of Health Sciences offers all students the option of purchasing an annual or semester parking permit for the academic year. Students may request additional assistance from the Financial Aid office to cover this permit fee.

Students must purchase a WesternU annual or semester parking permit to park a vehicle in WesternU designated parking areas. These permits allow students to park in our student parking lots, the university parking structure and designated street parking.

Those students who do not purchase a WesternU permit must use Daily Permit parking to park a vehicle in the City Daily Permit lot (further information below).

Students who do not have WesternU parking permits do not have access to Western University of Health Sciences vehicle parking. Students parking without a Western University parking permit displayed on the mirror or dashboard, or without the correct permit for the area will be cited by the City of Pomona Police Department. At the third citation, the vehicle is subject to tow.


NMM/OMM PDT Fellows
are considered students and must purchase a WesternU Student parking permit or use Daily Permit Parking.

Frequently Asked Questions

I do not drive to campus or I use an alternate means of transportation. Do I still need a parking permit?

No. Although, anyone discovered parking in WesternU parking without a permit will be ticketed by the Vehicle Parking District (VPD), of the City of Pomona. Anyone discovered parking illegally in WesternU parking 3 times within a semester will have their vehicle towed and be subject to a fine by Western University.


I lost my parking permit, my parking permit was stolen, or I sold my car and purchased a new one. Can I get a replacement?

If you have lost your parking permit you may request a replacement from the Bursars’ office. If the original permit is found being used by someone else the original purchaser will be charged the full amount of the permit for the second permit. If you purchased a new car, you can continue to use your existing permit.


What if I am only on campus a few times a year?

You may use Daily Permit parking. If you are attending with a large group your college will request a special permit that your group can purchase from the Bursars office to cover your parking.
