Parking Tips

Please remember to arrive early in the first few weeks of the semester to allow enough time to get to your destination. Drivers are also reminded to park on campus and in designated spaces; please avoid parking in the neighboring communities and in restricted areas.

Employees and students are also encouraged to find alternative transportation to campus during the first few weeks of the semester to help alleviate parking congestion - try the bus, ride a bike - carpool!


Transportation Options

Compton College students have several alternative transportation options: walk/bike, Uber/Lyft, and rideshare. Currently enrolled Compton College students are eligible for free Metro Tap ToGo Passes. Please click here for more information.
