Parking Made Easy
We're pleased to provide you greater service and value for your VPAC experience. For the first time this year, if you purchased a subscription or full-priced tickets to any VPAC performance, your purchase includes parking. EVERY car parked in a CSUN lot must display a valid parking permit on the dashboard.
How do you access your VPAC parking privilege?
1) Display a valid proof of purchase for your tickets on the dashboard, with the date of the performance clearly visible. Or...
2) As a back up, we will send the usual Plan Your Event email a day before the performance to all purchasers, which will include your proof of purchase. Please print and display proof of purchase on your dashboard with the date clearly visible. Please be sure we have your valid email address if you use this option.
If you forget both, you'll have to purchase a permit from the kiosk in the lot. You'll be disappointed, but you'll probably remember the next time. And meanwhile, we'll buy you a drink to cheer you up. Seriously.
What else should you know about VPAC parking?
Entering from the intersection of Lindley Ave. and Nordhoff St., we have ample accessible handicap spaces available to those with the required placard and very convenient drop off in front of VPAC, steps from our front door.
If you purchased a CSUN faculty, staff, or student ticket, you must display your usual parking permit, or purchase one from the kiosks available in each lot.
If you purchased discounted tickets, you will have to buy parking from the kiosks available in each lot.
Valet parking will be regularly available at VPAC presentations for $15 (CASH ONLY). Running late? Inclement weather? Valet parking will be conveniently located steps from VPAC’s entrance and will be available one hour prior to performances, by entering the intersection of Lindley Ave/Nordhoff St.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Parking permit required. Visitors requiring accommodations for a disability, call venue info number at least two weeks in advance. Vehicles with the handicap placard are still required to have a parking permit.
