There are a limited number of 30-minute visitor spots near the Extended Education complex; however, BE PREPARED for longer stays. If your visit requires more than 30 minutes, we recommend you purchase a daily pass ($9) to avoid getting ticketed. (There are parking permit kiosks in the corners of Lots 3 and 6.) Parking is STRICTLY ENFORCED in all lots. Please make sure to display a daily permit or current term parking permit as required. Should you have any question(s) please contact Parking Services at (310) 243-3725. Street parking may also be available along Victoria Street, and Extended Education is a minimal walk from the Gate D entrance.

Parents of small children: please be aware that our office building also houses research and academic staff, and ask that children not be allowed to run/play inside the building; we have a friendly, park-like open seating area in front of the EE Classroom Building.
