Scheduling Visitor Parking

How to Schedule Visitors on Campus:

Visitors parking may be requested by employees only, students may request parking for visitor or guest speakers by contacting University Student Affairs.

There are two ways to schedule guests:

  1. Resource Scheduler Reservation
  2. Visitor Parking Request form.

Visitors for Non-Reserved rooms/areas (not available on the Resource Scheduler)

These visits need to be scheduled by completing the Visitor Parking Request form. If it is imperative that you mail the permit, you must email at least a week prior to their visit. Visitor Parking is located by the bookstore, to the side of University Services Center.  and in lot 19.

Visitor Parking Instructions: (Please provide your scheduled guests with the instructions below)

  1. Please enter Lot # 17 on Gibbs Street (MapQuest: 401 E. 2nd St., Pomona, 91766).
  2. Head East in lot 17 and on your right you will see the University Services Center, enter visitor lot on your Right.
  3. Once parked you may enter the University Services Building and a security guard will check you in and provide you with a visitors badge and parking permit if one was not already provided.
  4. If you are unable to locate a security guard please go to the 2nd floor of the University Services Center and someone in Facilities will assist you.

Guests Badges: Security will provide Guest badges at the time they greet the guest(s).The guests may return the badges to the department that they are visiting. The department can then return them to the Security desk in the University Services Center via inter-office mail.
