2020-2021 Temporary Parking Lot Closures

WSU Transportation Services wants to inform customers that several parking lots on campus will be closed this fall and winter. The decision to temporarily close parking lots has been made due the budget impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic and the lack of demand for parking. Closing these lots will not only reduce expenses for snow removal, it will also reduce expenses for necessary lot maintenance in the spring.

Some select parking lots will be closed completely, and others will be signed as “No snow maintenance”. The “No snow maintenance” lots will remain open for use, but will not be plowed during or after snow events.

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:


  1. Green 3 gravel parking lot at the corner of College and Spokane
  2. Green 3 gravel parking lot at the corner of Columbia and Spokane
  3. Green 3 gravel parking lot west of the Commons building

WSU Pullman launches new mobile parking app

August 19, 2020

Pullman, WA – Washington State University Pullman Transportation Services has announced that a new parking app has officially launched on campus, making remote parking payment even more convenient for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

The app, called AMP (Aims Mobile Pay), is a mobile payment solution providing ultimate convenience to motorists. App users may pay for parking with their iPhone or Android devices. They can then receive a reminder when their parking is about to expire and may add more time if needed, all without having to walk to their vehicle.

To download the app, simply search “AMP Park” in Google Play or in the Apple store. Once downloaded, a quick registration process walks the user through setting up their profile, vehicle information, and payment. When ready to park, users simply indicate their parking zone, choose a duration and confirm payment.

Similar to the University’s annual and daily parking permits, there is no need to display a physical permit on your vehicle since the system uses license plate recognition to read the vehicle license plate as the permit.

Account information such as license plate additions, payment detail modifications, and changes to notification settings can be managed directly on the app or on the AMP website.

As the majority WSU students, faculty, staff, and visitors, will not be coming to campus on a regular basis due to COVID-19, buying an annual parking permit may not be the most economical option. The AMP app will make it easy for those who need to come to campus periodically to park for a couple of hours or even the day.  

The AMP app is currently available in sixteen parking locations throughout the WSU Pullman campus, including select parking lots, metered spaces and parking garages. WSU Transportation Services may add additional mobile pay parking locations in the future.

Download AMP now or check out the Pay as You Go parking map to see all available locations!

New parking app at WSU Pullman means no more need for quarters

September 9, 2019


PULLMAN, Wash. — A stellar parking spot is no longer out of reach on the WSU Pullman campus for those without quarters or time to run to a parking kiosk.
WSU Pullman Transportation Services has teamed up with an app called WayToPark, allowing visitors to pay for parking remotely. Users also can set up text reminders to alert them when their time is almost up and give them the ability to extend it from their phones.
“WayToPark provides a convenient and straight-forward way to find parking,” said Chris Boyan, associate director of WSU Transportation Services. “Of particular benefit, we think, is the ability to extend meters from phones rather than having to leave classes, meetings or other university events.”
WayToPark can be downloaded through either the Google Play or Apple store. After completing the registration process, users can indicate a parking zone, choose a duration and confirm their payment.
Users can pay for parking through WayToPark at several campus locations: Terrell Library Garage, Smith Center Garage, Green 5 South Beasley Lot, Yellow 1 Indoor Practice Facility Lot, Red 5 Tennis Courts Lot and the Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center Lot.
As with WSU Pullman’s annual and daily parking permits, physical permits do not need to be displayed inside a vehicle, according to WSU Pullman Transportation Services. That’s because a License Plate Recognition system is used to read plates as the permit.
Upon launching at WSU Pullman, WayToPark is now available in 15 states across the country. To learn more, visit
