Current Restrictions

Jayhawk Boulevard is closed for drive-thru from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday.

All lots are under restriction.  Please check lot signs at the entrances to the lots and within the lots for times.

Red, blue, and gold zones are restricted year-round.


Zone Change

Lot 72 is now a Jayhawker Towers lot. The north row facing Irving Hill Road still requires a red permit to park there.

Rule Change

If you park illegally in a staff lot that you are not qualified for, your ticket price increases $10 each time you do it.  Once you hit the $75 ticket, your vehicle will be towed at your expense.  From thereafter, if you park illegally in a staff lot, you will receive the $75 ticket and immediately towed.
