Visitor parking at WSU

Welcome to Wichita State University!  

During the fall and spring semesters, Wichita State's main campus is a permit-only parking environment from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays when school is in session.

» See the parking map for summer (through mid-August)

Under WSU's new parking system, visitors may not need a parking permit, depending upon the length of time they plan to park.

During the enforcement period, visitors must park in green, yellow or yellow-and-green-striped lots across campus. Your first two hours on campus are free. If you plan to park for more than two hours, a visitor parking ePermit must be purchased online. 

Single day ePermits are $5, or you may purchase a frequent visitor ePermit for $75 per semester.

» Purchase a visitor parking ePermit  (You will be asked to provide license plate information and the type, make and color for each vehicle you wish to register to complete the purchase.)

Visitors must park in green, yellow or yellow-and-green-striped lots. They may not park in orange, brown or red parking lots.

Enforcement hours run Monday through Friday from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Permits are not enforced on weekends or on days when classes are not in session.

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.

Free park-and-ride option

Begining in early August 2016, visitors may also choose WSU's free park-and-ride option, taking WSU Shuttle System from satellite lots at the Hughes Metropolitan Complex at 29th and Oliver. Get more information about shuttle stops and schedules at wichita.edu/shuttle

Disabled parking

If you have a state disabled parking placard or plate, registering your vehicle and purchasing an ePermit is not required. You may park in the marked accessible parking stalls across campus. If those stalls are full, you can park in any legally available stall not posted as restricted or reserved.
