Parking associations and fees

Parking on the Pullman campus is governed by the Washington Administrative Code, follow this link to see the Parking Rules. The state of Washington has mandated that parking at its colleges and universities will be “self supporting.” Your parking fee is a “user” fee which enables WSU to build new parking facilities and maintain existing ones. Without these fees, we would not be able to provide adequate parking facilities.
