ParkingIf you plan to drive to campus, you should allow extra time for traffic and parking, which are particularly difficult during the first two weeks of school. To park on any of the SMC campuses you must have a current parking decal. Parking decals for SMC's Bundy, Airport and Performing Arts Campuses are FREE. Parking decals may be requested through Corsair Connect or picked up in person at the Bursar's office.
