The University of San Francisco has approximately 700 parking spaces available on-campus. Considering that the number of faculty and staff members far exceeds 700, the vast majority of these spaces are consumed by faculty and staff of the University. A handful of spaces are allocated to students each academic year. Please see Transportation section to view commuting options available to faculty, staff and students.
Campus Parking Access Numbers
Each parking lot at USF is assigned a parking access number or PAN. The parking lots are prioritized from PAN #7 (Gleeson Library, X-Arts and Lone Mountain Main lots) down to PAN #3. The larger lots are categorized as PAN #3s. These include the Hayes-Healy underground garage, the upper and lower lots of Koret Recreational Center, the Kendrick parking garage lots, and the Loyola Lot on Lone Mountain.
PAN numbers designated on parking permits denote which parking lot the vehicle may be parked in. Those with a PAN parking higher than 3 may park in their numbered lot and any lots with numbers lower than their current PAN.
PAN EVE (Evening) permits may park in PAN #3 lots from 3 pm - 7 am and in PAN #3, #4, and #7 lots from 6 pm - 7 am, Monday through Friday. Evening permits are valid all day on Saturdays in PAN #3, #4, and #7 lots. Parking is NOT permitted in the PAN #5 School of Education or Memorial Gym lots.
All faculty and staff with semester permits may park in all lots after 5 pm including PAN 5 lots, and including Evening permit holders.
