Parking at Wichita State

Welcome to Wichita State University!

During the fall and spring semesters, Wichita State’s main campus is a permit-only parking environment on weekdays when classes are in session. 

WSU students, faculty, staff and visitors wishing to park on campus during the enforcement period must register online with the Shocker Parking Management System to park legally. The system features license plate recognition (LPR) technology and virtual permits called ePermits that eliminate the need for color-coded hangtags and stickers for parking enforcement.

Student prices for permits are $150 for the academic year (August-May) or $75 per semester for cars, trucks, SUVs and motorcycles.

ePermits are required from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday in lots with yellow, green and yellow-and-green-striped signage. Lots with red and teal signage are reserved at all times.

NOTE: To accommodate the license plate scanning system, your license plate must be visible and unobscured. If your license plate is on the rear of your vehicle, backing into a parking stall or pulling through is not allowed and could result in a parking citations.
