  • Have a valid WSU Spokane parking permit with the correct vehicle information.
  • Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • The objective of a zone system is to provide you with a reliable chance of finding a space in your zone.
  • If you cannot find a parking space, please contact Parking and Transportation Services at 509-368-6997 and let us assist you in finding a place to park.
  • Pay close attention to signs and park in marked spaces only. All lots have signs at their entrances to let you know what restrictions apply.
