Campus Parking

LBCC LAC parking lot M

The primary responsibility of the Parking Services staff at Long Beach City College is to provide students, staff, and the surrounding community accessibility to a safe and inviting learning environment. Our team of Parking Services Coordinators is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of parking lots throughout the District. This included resurfacing, proper paint markings, signage, access to state of the art parking permit machines, and the coordination of special events on campus. Our student assistant program employs several student assistants each semester. Their visibility throughout the campus provides guests with an approachable employee with advanced knowledge of the campus; they also enforce all parking regulations.
