Student Parking Registration

Parking is $550.00 per term. Students must pay the fee and fill out the below information each term in order to register for AMDA parking. Parking is limited and issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking assignments are determined by a student's housing assignment. Please e-mail laparking@amda.edu with any questions.

Parking Registration is currently available for Fall 2019 only.

Spring 2020 Parking Registration will become available on January 20th, 2020.

Due to high demand, AMDA has sold out of many parking spaces this semester, which is why your housing assignment option may be disabled. If you wish to be placed on a waiting list, or need a list of off campus parking options, please e-mail us at LAParking@amda.edu..

Note regarding selection of payment method – Checking Method or Credit Card selection

Due to the rising costs of credit card charges, AMDA requests that students and families making payments to select the Checking Account payment method, if possible, especially if you were planning to use a debit card. To use the Checking Account method, all you need is your ABA # (the nine digit number on the bottom of a check) and your checking account number. Then click submit. Thank you!

If you're having trouble, please let us know.

The registration and operation of motor vehicles in all AMDA-controlled parking lots are to be considered a privilege and not a right of individuals. AMDA reserves the right to deny or revoke such privileges at any time to any and all persons who fail to adhere to these regulations.

AMDA Parking Registration

AMDA provides parking for all students with a registered vehicle on a first come, first served basis. Students who reside in AMDA housing may be provided on-campus parking in designated student parking lots provided space is available. Students who commute may be provided off-campus parking at local lots near campus. Students must submit a parking registration form with payment to secure parking each term.

Parking Decals

Parking decals are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking fees must be paid in full before a parking decal is issued. Parking decals must be displayed in the vehicle's front windshield in the bottom left-hand corner while parked on AMDA-controlled parking lots. Vehicles without a valid parking decal will not be permitted to park, and may be fined or towed at vehicle owner's expense. Parking decals will be distributed to new students during Orientation and continuing students during the 1st week of the term.

Commuter Parking Lot

AMDA currently utilizes space at the Coast (Avalon) Parking Lot for commuter students located at 1749 Vine St. Parkers in this lot are issued an AMDA decal, a monthly hangtag for the lot and a key card. It is very important that the AMDA decal and lot hangtag are clearly visible in their vehicles.

Each month, students will be issued an off-campus hangtag, these can be picked up from 2nd floor Tower Reception, students will be e-mailed once their monthly hangtags are available for pick up. If a Coast Parking tag is lost or stolen, the replacement charge is $120.00. If a tag is lost or stolen, students should e-mail LAParking@amda.edu for instructions on how to replace the tag and pay the fee.

The key card will be issued to the student for the entire semester. If at any point students lose their key card, they should e-mail LAParking@amda.edu to request a replacement. Students will be issued a new key card and will be billed $25.00 for the replacement.

  • Please note the following restrictions at the Avalon lot:
    • Parking is available for AMDA use from 7:00am - 7:00pm Monday-Friday.
      • The lot has given AMDA a fifteen (15) minute grace period to remove all AMDA vehicles from the lot, however, any car exiting past 7:15pm each night (even by one minute) will be charged at $10.00 fee automatically by the lot.
      • Neither AMDA nor the lot attendant has any control over this fee, it is imposed by lot management.
      • If a student has a class conflict that will not allow them to move their vehicle on time, please e-mail LAParking@amda.edu.
      • Cars staying after 7:15pm may be subject to additional charges/fines, and/or towed at the lot owner's discretion.

Students may move their vehicles onto the Tower lot beginning at 6:00pm Monday through Friday, their AMDA ID will let them in. Commuter vehicles must be removed from the Tower lot by 7:00am the next morning. Commuter vehicles found after 7:00am at the Tower lot may be towed or fined.

Stolen / Damaged Property

AMDA is not responsible for damages to vehicles or theft of articles left in vehicles. All parked vehicles should be securely locked at all times, with valuables left out of sight. Parking at AMDA, including at any offsite lot AMDA has contracted with, is at the vehicle owner's own risk and AMDA is not responsible for theft or damages.

Fines/Towing

All vehicles must be operational, display a valid state license tag and current AMDA parking decal. At no time are vehicles to be stored on campus. AMDA reserves the right to fine or tow vehicles that are in violation of any of our parking guidelines. A fine of $50 will be assessed if a car is illegally parked. Before towing, a reasonable attempt will be made to contact the vehicle's owner. Once a tow truck is called, the owner is responsible for all costs incurred, including storage. AMDA is not responsible for the payment of any city or state issued parking tickets or for any tow fees.

Parking During Events

At points during the term, students may be asked to park somewhere other than their designated lot due to an event on campus. A location will be provided by the College. Failure to comply may result in fines and/or towing.

Notification

Students are required to notify the Parking Department at laparking@amda.edu if their housing or vehicle information changes throughout the term or if they ever encounter difficulties parking in an AMDA lot. In addition to notifying the Parking Department, students may inform the guard on duty if they experience any difficulties parking.

Parking Cancellation

Students may request in writing the cancellation of parking, which may or may not result in a refund of some or the entire parking fee. Please address written requests to LAParking@amda.edu. Parking fees will NOT be refunded if a school disciplinary action results in the loss of parking privileges. In the event of a student withdrawal, parking refunds will be processed based on a prorated calculation and included as part of the overall refund (if applicable). For a breakdown of refunds, please see page 6 of the LA Student Handbook.
