Spring 2024 GAP Permits

Cal Poly Three-Week GAP Parking Permit

Residential permits for the R4 structure are available for authorized resident students via the Parking Portal.

To support students at the end of the year with transportation and move-out needs, Cal Poly Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) is offering a limited number of parking permits to Housing residents who don’t already have a campus parking permit – including first years.

These “Spring Gap” permits are valid Saturday, May 25 – Sunday, June 16 on the third floor and rooftop levels of Village Drive (R3) OR the Canyon Circle (R4) structure in Poly Canyon Village OR the K1 Commuter lot.

Gap Permits are ONLY valid in the associated parking structure or lot. Vehicles parked in other locations will be cited to maintain adequate inventory across all resident parking locations. Mustang Shuttle is an available resource for transport to/from parking locations to resident locations.

Fall Gap Permits will go on sale Wednesday, May 15, 2024 at 10:00AM (PST) on the Parking Portal. The cost is $150. As sales are on a first-come first-served basis; there will not be a waiting list when permits sell out. Permit holders must park in the designated lot (either R3, R4, or K1 lot) noted above to avoid parking citations.
