Parking

Update for Spring Quarter 2021

Please note: Both Tacoma and Gig Harbor campuses are closed to the public and parking permits are not currently being issued. TCC will reinstate parking permit requirements as we return to normal operating procedures. 

Tacoma campus 

Please park in designated spots. Students may not park in a “STAFF” or “VISITOR” parking stall. If unmarked stalls are full, please go to the Public Safety Office in Building 14 for a temporary pass. A disabled placard, plate, or tab and a valid TCC parking permit must both be properly displayed when parking in a disabled stall.

Parking permits must be properly placed inside, on the lower left corner of the vehicle windshield.

Vehicles must first be registered online before requesting a student or employee parking permit. 

Online Vehicle Registration

After completing the online vehicle registration form and paying, stop by the Campus Public Safety Customer Service Desk in Building 14 to pick up a permit. Permits cost $15 per quarter; $60 for the year. How to pay:

  • For ABE, AESL or ESL, GED, Workfirst, Workforce (without financial aid) and Spruce, +21 students, please contact your program coordinator for your unique parking permit process, then proceed to the customer service desk to pick up your permit.
  • Students paying for permits by cash, check or money order may do so at the Cashier Window in Building 14. To pay by a credit or debit card, TCC will charge your account, and you may pay by logging into your ctcLink Student Homepage and selecting Financial Account.
  • For all other TCC students, the cost of your permit is included in your total tuition.

Visitor parking

Visitors may park in stalls marked “VISITOR” or if full, may obtain a temporary permit from the Campus Public Safety Customer Service Desk.
