Easy parking options

Much of the WSU campus is a permit-only environment from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays when school is in session. But there are easy options for visitors that make parking a snap.

Remember "V+3"

Visitors can park in any lot with white "V" sign at the entrance — and the first 3 visits of each semester* are 100% free. On your fourth visit each semester, you may either purchase an ePermit to park for $5 or day or choose to park for $1.50 per hour on the second, third and fourth floors of the parking garage next to the Rhatigan Student Center. 

Free parking on weekends and evenings

The enforcement period ends at 5 p.m. each night and is not enforced on weekends. There is no parking enforcement when school is not in session.

Braeburn Square parking is free

Visitors to Braeburn Square or the Shocker Pet Pathway can park in the Braeburn Square parking lot for free. Starbucks patrons can park free for up to two hours at Starbucks.
