WWU Parking Portal is our online system to purchase parking and purchase permits. You can access it by pressing the button below.
Parking may have already been arranged for you by whomever invited you to campus. If you provided your license plate number to your host, you were likely already issued a permit and can park without any additional action.
If you were given a pay station code, you may enter the code at the pay station in your assigned parking lot. If you were not given parking instructions, including your lot assignment, you should check with your host to ensure no additional action is required.
To obtain a permit you must first add yourself to the waitlist for your desired lot. This can done through the Parking Portal. Permits are awarded from the waitlist based on availability and waitlist position is ordered based on seniority (the number of credits you've completed). If you are awarded a permit you will receive an email notification containing purchase instructions.
Citations can be paid through theParking Portal. From the home page, enter the citation number or the license plate number to locate the citation.
If you believe that your citation was issued in error, you can appeal the citation through the Parking Portal. Citation appeals must be made within 7 days of issuance, with the first day being the day following the citation’s issue date. All days, including weekends and holidays, are counted when determining the appeal deadline.
If you have a permit and wish to transfer to a different lot, you can add yourself to the waitlist for your desired lot. If you are awarded a permit for a new lot, you can transfer the credit from your original permit and use it to pay for your new permit. Payment would be required or a refund would be generated if the two permits differ in price.
Daytime hours (Monday – Friday, 7:00am – 4:30pm): A WWU permit is required along with your state disability placard. You can obtain a permit in lot C or 6V at the pay station or by using the Parkmobile app. This permit, along with your disability placard, will allow you to park in any disability space on campus. If the disability space nearest your destination is full, you can park in an adjacent, non-reserved, space.
After hours (Monday – Friday after 4:30pm, all day Saturday and Sunday): During these hours a WWU permit is not required as long as you are hanging your state disability placard. You can park in any available disability space or adjacent space.
