2020-21 U-Pass Renewals
The Parking and Transportation team will notify WashU Danforth faculty and staff that U-Pass renewals are available via email on Friday, June 5 and Med School faculty and staff will be notified via email on Monday, June 8. All WashU employees who were issued an FY20 U-Pass will receive the renewal email, including those who have been furloughed.

2020-21 Parking Permits
Those eligible to park on the Danforth Campus during the 2020-21 academic year will need to purchase a new 2020-21 parking permit. These will be valid starting Aug. 1, 2020. Currently, employee permits are expected to be available for purchase in early-June with student permit availability to follow in mid-June. This timeline is subject to change as we adapt to operational fluctuations. The Parking and Transportation team will send a notification to WashU email accounts when 2020-21 permit sales are live.

As a reminder, Parking and Transportation Services has moved to “open park” operations on the Danforth Campus and will continue such operations through July 31, 2020. During this timeframe, parking in yellow permit or visitor designated spaces is allowed without permit/payment.

Parking and Transportation Services has created a dedicated COVID-19 webpage for important news and alerts regarding the impact of COVID-19.
