Visitor Parking

A Napa Valley College parking permit is required on any vehicle parking on any part of the Napa Valley College main campus during the following hours:

Monday - Thursday  6 AM to 10 PM  
Friday 6 AM to 5 PM  
Saturday & Sunday No Permit Required  
College Holidays No Permit Required

This includes parents, high school students, and guests who are using the College's athletic facilities for high school events, team practices, and games.  This also applies to club sport teams.

Visitor parking is located in the parking lot near building 1300 and 1700. Visitors parking is marked by either a green curb or signs and is limited to 30 minutes.  Visitors requiring more than 30 minutes need to purchase a daily parking permit from a daily permit machine, which are located in each parking lot.  Click here for a map of these locations.

Pick-Up & Drop-Off zones are marked with a white curb, signs, or both.  Parking and leaving your car is not allowed in these zones; however, you may sit and wait inside your car for a passenger for up to 30 minutes.  A large zone is located adjacent to the pool, gym, and the tennis courts.

Your Parking Options:

  • Semester Parking Permit:  If you are on campus more than one day per week then the semester permit is the least expensive parking option.  Semeter parking permits can only be purchased online from Credentials, Inc. and should be attached to the inside lower-left corner of the windshield as indicated on the permit instruction sheet.
  • No Parking Permit Necessary: A parking permit is not required if you use the "Pick-Up and Drop-Off" zones, which are located throughout the campus. Click here for map.
  • Daily Parking Permit:  If you park occasionally on campus then a daily parking permit may be your best option.  A daily parking permit can be purchased from the permit machines that are located throughout the parking lots. Click here for a map of parking permit locations.  These locations are identified by the parking permit machine signs. Daily parking permits are only valid on the day of purchase.
