Note: Student parking permits are not required at the Middlefield Campus.
A parking permit is required at all times at the Foothill College main campus. When
properly displayed, a permit authorizes you to park in any student lot. Failure to properly
display a parking permit, except in 30-minute parking spaces, will result in a citation.
Foothill College and De Anza College parking permits are valid at both campuses. A permit
is not required at the Foothill Middlefield campus in Palo Alto.
There are three types of parking permit decals: annual, quarterly and day-use.
Parking Fees & How to Get a Permit
Purchase a day-use permit for $3 (beginning Winter 2012) from vending machines in student parking lots.
Machines accept $1 bills, and nickel, dime and quarter coins only. The day-use permit
is valid on the date of purchase only. Before purchasing a daily permit, always find a
legal parking space first. Park in marked spaces only!

If you are not an enrolled student at Foothill or De Anza college, you will not be able to login to MyPortal to buy a parking permit. However, you can buy a permit from the permit vendor.
