The Hay Barn has a total of 22 regular parking spaces including 1 ADA space. We recommend event holders use the Hay Barn’s parking lot for VIP, vendors and guests who have mobility issues, directing guests to park at the Campus Facilities parking lots 115/116 (across Coolidge Drive), or the Barn Theater, lot #122 (at the base of campus). The CASFS Event Coordinator can provide more information on parking and shuttle options if needed. You may also visit  UCSC’s Transportation and Parking Services web page


All Event Holders should note:

  • There is no parking allowed on Ranch View Road, except for the two spaces near the Blacksmith Shop, where there is one “A” permit space, and one ADA space. Please communicate that to your guests ahead of the event.
  • Parking is limited. Carpooling or Ride Share services are highly recommended.
  • Shuttles or busses must be approved before they are allowed onto campus, and must park at parking lot #122. There is not adequate room for large busses to manuever in the Hay Barn parking lot. 
  • Once the event holder or vendors have unloaded, all vehicles need to park at a designated event parking space (lot 115, 116, 122) per Fire Code.
  • CASFS cannot reimburse event holders or their guests for parking tickets issued by University parking enforcement.
