printer-friendly version

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.

You may access the parking map by clicking the following link:  https://www.westernu.edu/campusmap.

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 of Health Sciences 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.
