Freshman Free Parking Pilot Program

July 18, 2016

Welcome to Wayne State University! If you need campus parking for the fall 2016 semester, please follow the procedures below to enroll in the Freshman Free Parking Pilot Program — registration opens July 18. Please note that due to high parking demand, we encourage you to register early to secure a spot in your preferred structure or lot. Locations will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If your preferred location is unavailable, you will have to choose another location. If you will be living on campus in university housing, you can select Structure 2 or 8, depending on where you reside.
