Staff Drop & Go Lot Has Re-Opened

After being closed because of field conditions, the Staff Drop & Go lot on the soccer field has re-opened as of Feb. 22, 2017. Students may use this lot after 10:30 a.m. 


Flint Garage Closed for Renovations

The Flint Garage is closed for renovations, including seismic upgrades, and is scheduled to reopen in fall 2017.

Beginning the first day of fall quarter, and continuing through winter and spring, Drop & Go, facilitated parking in designated areas and other measures will help compensate for the loss of parking spaces. 

Both Drop & Go lots will be closed on Fridays beginning Nov. 18 as part of ongoing assessment of usage and subsequent adjustments. Parking will still be available in all other lots. Check the map for details.

  • A valid parking permit will be required for all lots, including Drop & Go. 
  • Drop & Go staff will use Flash Valet to expedite arrival and departure. Students and others using a daily ticket can text their ticket number to 408.763.8436 up to 10 minutes before leaving. The text number will also be on all tickets given to drivers. Faculty and staff should see below for specific instructions about their barcode sticker.
  • The company has committed to delivering vehicles within seven minutes of an in-person request.
  • Drop & Go hours will be 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Eight p.m. is the latest time to drop off your car. After 10 p.m., retrieve your keys from the police substation in the lower level of Campus Center. 
  • Additional lighting is provided in both the student and staff Drop & Go lots. In addition to background checks conducted by the company, Drop & Go staff have been fingerprinted by Foothill-De Anza police. Your mobile phone number will never be visible to Drop & Go staff.
  • The same number of accessible parking spaces will be available across campus. The 11 accessible spaces in Flint have been moved to the J lot.
  • As always, citations will be given for parking in accessible spaces without a valid placard, and in red zones and fire lanes. Local merchants may also cite for parking in their lots.
  • Consider carpooling with a fellow student or colleague. Read more about carpool spaces on campus
