Park safe, park smart on the Hill
Ample parking is available both on and immediately adjacent to the La
range College campus. To ensure public safety, students, faculty and staff must
park in legal spaces. (Designated zones are outlined below.)
Keeping access roads open to emergency vehicles in case of fire or life-threatening
events is vital to everyone on the Hill. As a result, the college enforces a tow-away
zone on the fire access roads on campus.
This means that any vehicle parked in an area with yellow curbing and signage is towed and fined.
The college's complete parking policy appears below. Use it as your guide to parking
responsibly and safely.
