Parking & transportation

Parking

Family housing residents are eligible to purchase one assigned parking space per residential unit. These numbered spaces are located in front of most buildings and are available on a first come, first served basis. The cost is 50% of a General Parking Permit.

Additional parking permits may be purchased for parking in general parking around Lam Circle.

  • Permits must be displayed in vehicles at all times.
  • Vehicles are required to be operative, currently licensed and insured, and without oil leaks.
  • Residents are not allowed to do vehicle repairs of any kind in the family housing complex.
