Directions to Campus


There is quite a bit of construction on campus this semester. Because of this, parking permits will only be issued from Information Booth #2. It is recommended that you enter the campus from the south end (off of highway 50 or Folsom Boulevard) to pick up your parking permit at Information Booth #2.  There are several areas to park that are close to the University Union, however please be aware that with increased enrollment and more faculty on campus you will be competing with faculty, staff, and students for parking. We have made arrangements for you to park at an off-campus site (Ramona parking lot) where a shuttle will take you to and from the University Union free of charge. We advise that you utilize this opportunity; or use a taxi, Uber or Lyft to get to and from campus as campus parking is extremely limited and could be unavailable to you.

> Campus Parking

Our campus is having multiple constructions and parking is limited. We do not recommend parking on campus, but if you wish to, please see the map below for parking structures and lots. Remember to pick up your parking permit at the Information Booth #2 on the south end of the campus as marked on the map.

> Parking at Ramona Lot (recommended)

Please first pick up your parking permit at the Information booth #2 on campus, then drive to the Ramona Lot and take the shuttle (Amador Stage Lines) from there to the campus. The shuttle will drop you off near the Hornet Bookstore, which is next to the University Union. The Amador Stage Lines shuttle will be in service from 8:30am until 10:30am.

The shuttle will pick you up at the drop-off location and drop you off at the Ramona Lot and will be in service from 1:30pm until 3:30pm.
