Medical Campus Permit Reciprocity

Park on Danforth Campus and Medical Campus with the appropriate parking permit.

Medical Campus Permit Reciprocity

Important Alert, Effective Feb 1, 2020

Due to capacity constraints, the Medical School will be temporarily relocating Danforth reciprocal parkers from Lot-L (view map) to 1234 South Kingshighway Blvd. This lot, which is located in a residential neighborhood by an active School of Medicine building, is gated and staffed by security during business hours. Those parking in this location will need to display hangtag permits as usual.

Two shuttles will be operating from this location. The shuttles will run every 20 minutes from the Kingshighway lot to the Mid Campus Center (MCC) between the hours of 5 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Outside of these hours, transportation can be requested through Protective Services by dialing 314-362-4357. Passengers will not need to show their WashU ID to ride but will need to stand at one of the two signed pick up locations within the lot.

Please contact the Facilities Integrated Service Center at 314-362-3100 with any questions. 

Washington University in St. Louis Danforth Campus parking services and Washington University School of Medicine  in St. Louis (WUSM) parking services recognize reciprocity of parking privileges on both campuses with appropriate parking permits.

On the Danforth Campus

WUSM reserved parking permits are valid in red/reserved surface spaces. Other WUSM permits, are ONLY permitted to park in the yellow / unreserved spaces in the Danforth Underground Campus (DUC) garage.

Because the DUC garage is gated, these permit holders will need to pull a ticket to gain entry and write their permit number and ID on the ticket before exiting. They will then hand the ticket to the gate attendant to exit without payment.

Danforth Campus permits cannot be sold to full-time WUSM employees or students. A physical hang-tag issued by the WUSM Parking & Transportation Office must be displayed. Medical Campus permits are not meant for full-time use at the Danforth Campus. Reciprocity is based on parking less than 20 hours on the Danforth campus.

On the North and West Campuses

WUSM permits are valid in any yellow/unreserved space at both North Campus and the surface lots at West Campus. The WUSM permit must be displayed at all times when parked on these campuses.

On the Medical Campus

In the Clayton Garage, the Medical Campus only recognizes Danforth Campus yellow, red, and Eliot permits; however, starting Feb. 1, 2020, the Medical School will be temporarily relocating Danforth reciprocal parkers from Lot-L (view map) to 1234 South Kingshighway Blvd.

Danforth Campus permits are not meant for full-time use at the Medical Campus. If you spend more than 20 hours during the business week on the Medical Campus, you must purchase a Medical Campus permit. This includes employees who are permanently moving from West or North Campus to the Medical Campus. These employees can secure a WUSM parking permit by contacting the FISC Desk on the first floor of the Olin Residence Hall located at 4550 Scott Ave.

Questions regarding parking at the Medical School can be directed to the FISC desk at 314-362-3100. Both the Danforth Campus and Medical Campus parking offices provide parking and contact information for the other campus to facilitate parking reciprocity for faculty, staff and students who need to park on both campuses.
