We're pleased to provide you greater service and value for your season performance. If you purchased a subscription or full-priced tickets to any Soraya-presented performance, your purchase includes self-parking! (Parking for student tickets, campus, rental or free-public events is $8 per vehicle).

To access this parking privilege, simply display a valid printable parking permit on your car's dashboard, with the date of the performance clearly visible. (Parking permits are sent via email to all eligible ticket buyers in the days leading up to the performance). If you forget your parking permit, please see a parking attendant located in the parking lot or in an Info Booth.

The Soraya’s Great Hall
Valet parking will be available at Soraya-presented performances at the Great Hall for $15 (cash only). Entering from the intersection of Lindley Ave. and Nordhoff St., valet parking is conveniently located just steps away from The Soraya’s South Entrance. Valet service begins 1 hour prior to the start of the performance and ends 30 minutes after the conclusion of the performance. After valet service ends, any remaining car keys can be found at Guest Services, located in our lobby.

The Soraya’s Great Hall
This season we debut our new 8-passenger courtesy carts for patrons who need a little extra help from the parking lot to the theater. The courtesy carts are driven by our well-trained Soraya staff and circle every 5 minutes between parking lot B1 and The Soraya courtyard (near our ticket office and just steps from our North Entrance). CSUN’s former shuttle service is no longer available and we're excited we no longer need to send patrons back out onto city streets with two traffic signals, a journey that sometimes took 15 minutes or more.

Service begins 1 hour and 15 minutes before the start of each performance and ends 45 minutes after the conclusion of the performance. We like to give priority service to those who need it, but everyone is welcome.

Plaza del Sol Performance Hall
Courtesy cart transportation is generally not available for performances at the Plaza del Sol Performance Hall, unless otherwise noted at time of ticket purchase.

The Soraya’s Great Hall and Plaza del Sol Performance Hall
The Soraya and Plaza del Sol Performance Hall (PDSPH) offers a number of parking options for other forms of personal transportation such as bicycles, scooters, and skateboards. Convenient bicycle racks are located around The Soraya’s Courtyard and inside the University Student Union complex for the PDSPH. For both venues, scooters and skateboards can be left at the complimentary Item Check for the duration of the performance.
