New 2022–2023 parking permit rates and zone changes

The Washington State University Parking and Transportation Task Force wants to thank the WSU Pullman campus community for the valuable feedback it received regarding the proposed parking rate increases and zone changes. After reviewing the feedback, the task force made amendments to both the proposed rate increase and zone changes. Please visit the 2022–2023 Parking Rate and Zone Change webpage for details regarding the new approved parking permit rates and zone changes.

University apartment permits

Members of the WSU community getting a university apartment permit will NOT be required to show vehicle registration to activate a permit.
