Parking Need & Capacity

 

Because SLCC is a commuter college, parking is a critical planning issue. Although parking lots may appear crowded at certain times of the day, in general, the parking inventory at the five owned sites is generous in comparison with other community colleges. This suggests that most locations can support additional students and buildings with relatively modest expansion of parking, if any. Provision of dedicated parking space for motorcycles and bicycles is recommended, and will reduce the number of single occupant automobiles on campus. Long term improvements in transit service are also recommended, further reducing future parking demand.
