Parking at BCC Everyone registering for a Continuing Education class is mailed a confirmation letter and a yellow parking permit. Please display this permit on your car’s dashboard while you are in class. If you require handicapped parking access, please call 778-5012. If you register for a class too late for a permit to be mailed to you, stop at the Continuing Education office to pick one up before parking for your class. The office is located in Room 115 of the Wales Administration Building.
Parking Evenings, Weekends BCC has an open parking policy after 5 p.m. and on weekends. However, the following general parking regulations are always in effect: • No parking is allowed on grass, roadways, or parking lot perimeters. • No parking without a special BCC permit is allowed in handicapped zones. • No parking is allowed in Lot 17, which is reserved at all times for staff.
