Where to Park
Student / Guest Parking
Lot 5 is the closest parking lot to the Welcome Center in the Technology Learning Center (TLC) which can assist you with applying and enrolling at the college as well as answering general questions. It is also close to the Aviation Tech buildings (ATA, ATB), the Film / TV production program's Watson Center, Admissions and Athletics.
At the corner of Albert Vera and B Street. From the Overland entrance, turn right at the baseball field (Albert Vera) and enter the driveway on the right that is halfway up the hill. From Lot 7, you can walk up the incline on B Street to reach the Student Services Building which houses Admissions, the Bookstore, the Cafe and other student services. The General Classrooms (GC) building is also on this route.
For disabled visitors or others who are not able to traverse an incline, we recommend that you park in the Parking Structure. Park on Level 2 or take the elevator to Level 2 so that you can take advantage of the flat, accessible path to the Student Services Building.

Next to the gym, athletic field and the Aviation Complex (AT A) which houses the Aviation and Film / TV Production Crafts programs.
