Student feedback leads to parking plan revisions
Based on student feedback, Wichita State University has made revisions to its 2014-15 parking plan, first released on July 17.
The changes are:
- Creation of a fall-only option. To accommodate graduating students and those not returning to WSU in the spring, students may now opt to return the hangtag at the end of the fall semester to receive a $60 refund, equivalent to half the cost of the one-year permit. To receive the refund, bring the hangtag to Jardine Hall, Room 201, at the end of the semester. A $60 credit will be placed on the student’s account and then refunded either to the student’s bank account as specified in the Student Account Suite or via a check mailed to the student’s home address.
- Multiple vehicles (car/truck/SUV) on a single permit. Students who purchase a permit for their primary car, truck or SUV will be able to move the hangtag between vehicles without purchasing additional permits. Motorcycle decals must be purchased separately.
- After-hours shuttle available for all WSU students, faculty and staff. To help students whose classes begin early or end late, an on-demand shuttle service will run between Metropolitan Complex lots at 29th and Oliver and Shocker Hall on the WSU main campus from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. on weekdays and on weekends. The shuttle will be free of charge.
- Fairmount Towers and Shocker Hall permits are covered in housing costs. In a correction of previously reported information, students living in Fairmount Towers or Shocker Hall will be issued one hangtag at no cost. Housing students will be informed of the process for registering their primary vehicle during the housing check-in process.
All other aspects of the WSU Parking Plan will remain unchanged for 2014-15.
