Oakland Campus

Residential students in the First-Year Community (Clifton Hall, Avenue Apartments & Irwin Hall) are not permitted to bring vehicles to the college due to an agreement made with the City of Oakland.

FYC residents are required to sign an agreement to this effect and are subject to strict disciplinary procedures if a vehicle they are using is found on or near the Oakland campus.

If driving to campus, students may not park in the parking lot of the Arts Far West School on Clifton; those who do so will be towed.

Students may park on any of the city streets near the campus, but should be careful not to block driveways or crosswalks in the residential community; otherwise, their cars will be ticketed and towed by the Oakland Police Department at the car owner's expense.

Handicapped parking is available by state permit in the front of the faculty lot and on Clifton Street.
