Permits - Students Living on Campus
Students living on campus should purchase the appropriate parking permit for their residence hall or on-campus apartment. All other lots on campus are restricted during the day for vehicles with the appropriate permit for those lots. On-campus housing residents should expect to walk or ride the bus from their residence to class and back. Due to the limited number of parking stalls available for residents of campus housing, not every resident will be able to purchase a permit for the closest parking lot to their residence hall.
Important Note: There are staff red parking zones spread throughout KU housing parking lots. An appropriate staff permit is required for these spaces 24 hours a day, and vehicles with housing or other permits will be ticketed and may be towed if found parked in the red stalls. Be aware and check signs when parking.
All Housing Permits cost $306
