Fall car drop-offCar Drop-Off

We'll park your car for you - for FREE*

Parking is challenging at the start of the new term. Car drop-off gives you one less thing to worry about during the first two weeks of class.

We have hired a fully licensed and bonded company to safely park more cars in less space - making more parking for all. All you have to do is drop off your car and get to class. See our frequently asked questions.

* A valid DVC Parking Permit is required after the first week. Login and purchase your parking permit early so you can use the FREE service. Or learn more about parking at DVC.

Westpark logoHow

Drop your car off in the overflow parking lot - across from the college on Golf Club Road. See campus map. Westpark employees wear a uniform and carry identification.

Important: please do not lose your parking claim ticket; they will need it to quickly locate your car when you return. If you lose your claim ticket, please present your drivers license to a parking attendant at one of the drop-off stations (look for podiums with umbrellas).

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your class starts to allow time to drop off your car and get to class.

Exiting the overflow lot

Please follow the parking attendants' instructions for leaving the lot. Cars will be guided to the exits at the far East and West ends of the lot.

After 3 pm, any remaining cars will be parked and locked at the front of the overflow lot. The keys will be left at the DVC Police Station (Lot 1). You can always come to pick up your keys before 3 pm from the attendant.
