Virtual Permits

Coast Community College District Public Safety has launched a new parking management system at the District Offices, Orange Coast College, Golden West College, and Coastline College that has included the implementation of Virtual Permitting to replace physical permits. This system will improve and streamline the parking permitting process. There is no physical permit to be displayed. You would only need to register the vehicle(s) that you typically drive to campus, then your vehicle license plate will be counted using license plate recognition (LPR) as your parking permit.
