Mills College has established the following regulations to govern parking and traffic movement on campus. These regulations are specifically designed for the safe and orderly flow of vehicles and pedestrian safety at Mills.

Permission to park and operate a motor vehicle on Mills property are privileges subject to these regulations.

 Overview

Students, faculty, staff and regular visitors wishing to park on campus must register vehicles and display appropriate annual parking permit(s). Annual permit cycles revolve with the academic year, as opposed to the calendar year, and are not prorated (i.e. 2016-17 permit = August 31, 2017 expiration).

One-Day, Extended Guest, Visitor (Friends of the College [FOTC]) and Pool Permits are also available to non-Mills ID holding community members and alumni(ae).

Student and FOTC parking permits may be purchased online via eMarket or from the Department of Public Safety at CPM 113.

  • To mitigate and minimize the impact of parking and traffic congestion on the academic mission of the College and on the surrounding community
  • To organize parking and movement of vehicles on the Mills College campus in an efficient and safe manner

Public Safety Staff Authority

Mills College Board of Trustees has delegated primary responsibility for the enforcement of college regulations, including all parking and traffic regulations, to the Director of Public Safety.

Public Safety Officers, as duly appointed representatives of Mills College under the supervision of the Director of Public Safety have authority to enforce parking and traffic regulations on college property.

The college reserves the right to revise these regulations, including schedules of fees, fines, and penalties at any time, without notice by posting the new or revised information on the Public Safety website.

Information on current permit fees may be obtained by calling the Department of Public Safety at x2103 or 510.430.2103, or by email at safety@mills.edu.

These recommendations are a result of a collaborative effort with Campus Facilities and appropriate campus advisory committees.

No person without authorization from the Director of Public Safety shall remove, move, deface, or in any way change a sign, barricade, structure, marking, or direction placed for the purpose of regulating parking or traffic. Permission to make temporary or permanent changes of this nature must be obtained from the Director of Public Safety or his/her designee.
