Freshman Free Parking Pilot Program

WSU parking structure

Thank you for participating in the Freshman Free Parking Pilot Program. We hope the program helped ease your transition to campus life and encouraged you to actively participate in additional classes and campus activities. The program will conclude at the end 2017 Winter Semester and parking permits will expire on Sunday, May 7, 2017. 

All current and incoming freshman who wish to have assigned parking on campus for Spring/Summer semester will need to purchase parking access and new RFID tag. Students can make this purchase at the OneCard/Parking Service Center in the Welcome Center Room 257 or online by clicking the button below. Acceptable forms of payment online include Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Electronic Check. The OneCard/Parking Service Center only accepts cash or OneCard payments. Students who need to purchase handicapped parking assignments may use credit, cash or OneCard. Parking permits for Spring/Summer Semester go on sale Monday, April 3, 2017.

As an alternative to purchasing a parking pass, students may add money to their OneCard and pay as they go at the student rate and not the visitor rate. Student rates only apply when using a OneCard and not when using a credit card.
