Anyone who plans to park on campus during the 2018-19 academic year, and is eligible to do so, will need to purchase a new 2018-19 parking permit.

Parking Permits

WashU has engaged Uber to provide an additional, safe option to
students traveling between campus and home. This is a limited-term option and applies only to students traveling between four pick up locations on the Danforth Campus – the Knight Center, the Mallinckrodt Center, the South 40 and Sam Fox – and reside within the neighborhoods north and south of Delmar Blvd., the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood, and the area directly south of the Danforth Campus.

The Parking and Transportation office (located at North Campus) and the Danforth Satellite office (located in the Women’s Building) will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 8.
The offices will reopen on Friday, Nov. 9, at 8:30 a.m.
