Security and Parking

Event Security

The University of Pacific Department of Public Safety is charged with planning and operational management of many special events on campus. Public Safety works with the Conference Services, Athletics and many other departments to provide security for a diverse selection of events that occur at Pacific.

Below is a list of the items taken into account when planning for your event. Based on the information given about the event, a determination as to the amount of Event Security Officers (ESOs) will be made and presented to the group.  The rates vary.  Some events on campus may require one or more sworn Police Officers to attend the event as added security.  Overtime rates may apply.

If you would like more information pertaining to the security to support your event, please contact our Coordinator of Special Events at 209-946-2537.

Event Parking

The administration of reserving parking spaces for special events is now shared between Public Safety and Conference Services.  Determination of which of these two offices will service your special event parking needs depends if you need three or less parking spaces reserved OR it you need four or more parking spaces reserved.

For reserving 1-3 parking spaces, please contact Conference Services at 209.932.2844 and complete a Reserved Parking Request (RPR) form a minimum of 2 business days before your event. Upon receipt and approval of your completed RPR form, Conference Services will notify you to pick up safety cones. Your office would be responsible for placing the safety cones to reserve the spaces you need. If for some reason your guest does not arrive, please attempt to remove the cone to make the space available to others. The cone needs to be returned back to Conference Services within 24 hours or you may be charged for its replacement. 

If you have a large group visiting campus, there are several alternatives, which must be organized through Public Safety. This may be arranged by calling Public Safety (209.946.2537) at least 5 business days 10 business days in advance of your event. This advanced notice is important so the university can assess the impact the event will have on other departments or if there are other events already planned. In addition, you must notify Office of Marketing and Communications so that advanced notice may be given to the campus community, and advise Public Safety when the Office of Marketing and Communications has been notified.

For any additional questions or inquiries please contact Conference Services at 209.932.2844 or 209.505.1598.
