Campus Parking

California Baptist University (CBU) offers an array of parking for staff, students, and faculty. All vehicles, including motorcycles operated on campus must be registered with California Baptist University Department of Safety Services. Drivers are expected to comply with the University traffic and safety regulations; non-compliance may result in the suspension of parking and/or driving privileges on campus.  Compliance with the registration process includes the proper display of a campus parking permit. Issuance of a parking permit does not guarantee availability of a parking space.

Temporary day permits are issued from the Adams and Magnolia Welcome Pavilions. The Department of Safety Services may issue temporary permits needed for an extended period of time. 

The CBU map below allows individuals to plan their trips and view the parking locations.
