  • Reserved Parking Policy

To provide procedures and eligibility criteria for obtaining a reserved parking space on the University of Kansas campus.

Applies to: 

Faculty and staff at the University of Kansas, Lawrence

Policy Statement: 

The University of Kansas Parking and Transit Department makes a limited number of reserved parking spaces available to individuals holding specific positions within the University community.

This privilege is position-driven; holders of reserved spaces shall, upon termination in an eligible position, relinquish their space to the Provost Office for reassignment. State funds cannot be used to purchase funds for an individual's space, but may be used when departments wish to purchase a departmental reserved permit for sound business reasons. The cost of a reserved permit ($800 for FY 2013) is the responsibility of the permit holder.

Individuals holding reserved spaces are expected to ensure that the stall is occupied the majority of the time during business hours. Therefore, each person eligible to purchase a reserved parking space may designate an "alternate parker," someone who will use the space when the permit holder is not on campus. Parking will issue each permit holder a temporary permit to distribute to an alternate as needed. To use the permit, the alternate must display a valid KU staff permit in addition to the alternate permit. The alternate permit is valid only in the space number indicated on the permit.

At their request, the persons in the following positions shall, be eligible to purchase a reserved parking permit (7:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday). All other requests shall be submitted in writing or via email with appropriate documentation to the Chief Financial Office and Vice Provost for Finance, who shall review requests on a case-by-case basis.
