Carpooling is a great way to get to campus! Carpoolers will:

  • Split the cost of their permit with one or more other commuters
  • Get access to prime carpool parking spaces
  • Protect the environment and help reduce traffic congestion
  • Earn rewards through Sacramento Region Commuter Club

Carpool spaces are located in Parking Structures I and III. Carpool permit required Monday-Friday until 11:00am. After 11:00am, carpool spaces are open to non-carpool Sac State permits.



To obtain a Sacramento State carpool parking permit, all members of the carpool must come to the UTAPS office with their Sacramento State semester parking permit (if already purchased) to exchange it and to complete a carpool application. Please prepare to have all vehicle license plate numbers for the vehicles that will potentially be used in your carpool. Only one (1) carpool parking permit will be issued per carpool. Carpool parking permits are obtained on a semester basis.

Carpools at Sacramento State must include at least two (2) people. At least two members of the carpool must be in the vehicle when parking in carpool spaces. Student carpool permits are also valid in student parking lots and faculty/staff carpool permits are valid in faculty/staff parking lots. Vehicles must be parked in non-carpool parking spaces when driving to campus alone and displaying a carpool permit.

Carpool spaces are available until 11:00am, Monday-Friday. After 11:00am, carpool parking spaces are open to vehicles displaying a valid Sacramento State parking permit. Carpool spaces are available for carpoolers during the Fall and Spring semester. At all other times, carpool spaces are available to vehicles with any valid Sac State parking permit.
