  • 2016 Winners Lists have been posted to the SYMF Members Only Portal. Please Login (right tab in the menu bar above) to access the lists.
  • CSULB is installing new parking permit dispensers in Parking Lot 12. Unfortunately, they are in the middle of replacing the dispenser right near the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music, so it is NOT available this weekend. It can get very crowded waiting to pay for a parking permit, so PLEASE tell your students to arrive early. However, there is now a new dispenser located at the north end of the parking lot (toward Atherton Street), directly across the front entrance of the Carpenter Performing Arts Center. There are also parking permit dispensers in Parking Structures 2 and 3. You may also use Parking Lot 13, west of the blue pyramid. Please click the link below for the CSULB Campus and Parking Map. The Bob Cole Music Conservatory (labeled UMC) is located in the upper right-hand corner of the map: http://daf.csulb.edu/maps/parking/index.html#q3
