PULLMAN, Wash. –Washington State University Transportation Services wants to inform customers that some select parking lots on the Pullman campus will be signed as “No snow maintenance” and others will be closed completely this fall and winter. The “No snow maintenance” lots will remain open for use but will not be plowed during or after snow events.

This decision has been made due to the budget impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of demand for parking. This temporary change will not only reduce expenses for snow removal, it will also reduce expenses for necessary lot maintenance in the spring.

Each parking lot was strategically selected to continue to ensure adequate customer parking as well as to realize savings on maintenance and snow removal costs.

Below is a list of affected parking lots:

Closed

  1. Green 3 gravel parking lot at the corner of College and Spokane
