Parking information. For those who are driving to UCLA, the best parking structure is lot 5, at the Royce entrance to UCLA along Sunset Blvd (along the north edge of campus). Parking permits ($6) are available from the kiosks along Hilgard Ave (along the east edge of campus), or at the entrance to lot 4, at the Westwood Blvd entrance along Sunset Blvd. You can also get a campus map from the kiosk. Note that the parking permits often don't work on the top level of lot 5. If you can't get a permit for lot 5, the second best choice is lot 4.
