No Lines! License Plates Replace Physical Parking Permits


Cypress College eliminated parking permits — so you won’t have to wait in line or by the mailbox. Ever again. That’s because your license plate is your permit.

Just as before, students will purchase parking when registering for classes. Once all fees are paid in full, simply activate this new permit in myGateway by entering your plate number. That’s it. If you’re changing cars for the day (or a period of time), simply login and input the temporary plate.

In myGateway, simply look for the “Cypress Parking System” link under “Registration Tools” and follow the directions to enter the information.

Cypress Parking System

All fees, including parking, must be paid in full to register your vehicle in the parking system. As an alternative, one-day visitor permits can be purchased online and/or at kiosk locations on the Cypress College campus.

Parking permits are valid across all NOCCCD locations so students from Fullerton College and School of Education who attend classes at Cypress College also need to register their vehicles.

All NOCCCD employees can register their vehicles at the same site.

Visitors will also use the system for guest parking and day-use permits, meaning trips to a cash-only vending machine are no longer necessary. Purchase and registration can even be completed via mobile phone from the parking lot. Signs provide QR links to the website.
