Where to park?

Parking on campus is as easy as "V+3." Almost all parking lots at WSU have "V" signage indicating that visitors can park there. Visitors can park free three times per semester in V lots without needing an e-permit. Visitors to Braeburn Square or the Shocker Pet Pathway can park at Braeburn Square lot for free at any time. Starbucks patrons can park for up to two hours at Starbucks. We also offer pay-to-park on the second and third floors of the parking garage near the Rhatigan Student Center.
