Parking and Transportation Services

Our goal is to provide students, faculty, staff, and visitors with the most accurate and helpful information about parking and transportation services at WSU Health Sciences Spokane.

Rental Vehicles

WSU Spokane’s Transportation Services rents vehicles for faculty, staff, and department-backed students to use for WSU business purposes only. Rental vehicles cannot be used for personal-use, which includes transporting family, friends, or animals (service animals are OK).

Early Departure?

A vehicle key may be received one day prior (if available). However, vehicle must remain on campus until trip departure. Rental vehicle must not be driven home.

To verify vehicle availability, please contact the Transportation office and provide:

  • Name
  • Date(s) vehicle needed
  • Destination
  • Workday Program or Grant # (example: PG/GR xxxxxxxx)
