Parking and stranded vehiles

  • Parking structures 4 and 7 have been fully drained and cleared of the vehicles that were trapped inside. A structural engineer has evaluated the structures and declared them safe, but both structures remain closed to the general public as clean-up and repairs continue. Crews are restoring ventilation, elevator doors, fire safety systems and more.
  • In parking structure 4, UCLA Transportation has re-opened to a group of permit-holders only about 500 spaces at the east end, beneath Wilson Plaza. Additional portions of structures 4 and 7 are expected to re-open in phases before the start of the academic year in October, officials said. Permit holders will be notified when spaces are available for them to park in structures 4 or 7. Until then, permit holders are asked to use their temporary permits for structures 2 and 3.
  • Of the nearly 1,000 cars that were trapped in the flooded garages, 35 remained to be picked up by their drivers as of Monday morning. UCLA Transportation is continuing efforts to to reach out to the owners. Find more information at Parking Structure 4 and 7 updates and UCLA Transportation Twitter.

Guidelines regarding emergency leave and related support services

  • The campus has made a loan-assistance program available for UCLA employees and students whose vehicles were damaged in the flood; those needing emergency loans are required to first complete an emergency loan survey. More information about that program and a list of other resources for employees affected by the flooding are posted online at  Campus Human Resources.
  • Administrative leave with pay is available to UCLA staff during natural disasters or other emergencies and is addressed under the Absence from Work Policy, Section F. Administrative Leave. Contact your supervisor.
  • Additionally, departments may allow employees who are unable to work as a result of the flooding to use their accrued vacation, compensatory time off, or leave without pay. Check with your supervisor. Details are available at Campus Human Resources.
