Alamo Colleges' Library Information

St. Philip's College
• MLK Campus Library
• Southwest Campus Library

Beginning in Fall 2013, all Alamo Colleges' students will pay a Campus Access Fee which also covers parking at any of the Alamo Colleges' campuses, off-site locations or district offices.

For students, the fee of $25 per semester is included when they pay their tuition and fees each semester, with the maximum fee paid not to exceed $50 per year. Once students pay their tuition and fees for the semester, they can get up to two parking decals or a VIA bus pass at no extra charge. The parking decal(s) allows students to park in any of the Alamo Colleges' surface parking lots designated as "Student Parking."

Students must have a parking decal on their vehicle to park at any Alamo Colleges' location. However, a parking decal does not guarantee a parking space.

For students at San Antonio College and Northwest Vista College, the parking decal allows them to park in the parking garages on campus. However, an additional $1 per use will be charged for using the parking garage.

Vehicles parked in designated Student Parking without a parking decal may be ticketed.
