Brelsford WSU Visitor Center Travel and Transportation


Parking is often on the forefront of any visit to the WSU Pullman campus and there are several options for individuals planning a trip during the workday or evening and weekend hours.

Daily parking permits and hourly payment options are available for those visiting campus during business hours Monday-Friday and can be purchased in-person, online or through the AMP Park app.

Several parking lots around the core and edge of campus do not require permits or payment for evening and weekend hours while others — such as the parking structures — offer covered parking and close access to the pedestrian mall at an hourly rate.

All options can provide affordable and accessible parking for attending public events, celebrations, meetings and more!


Daily and hourly parking for the evening and weekend can be purchased either in-person or online, depending on the desired parking area and payment method.

In-Person: Daily permits or predetermined hourly parking can be purchased at WSU Transportation Services and the Brelsford WSU Visitor Center. Both offices accept cash and credit/debit card as payment. Parking rates vary based on permit type and location.

Online: Daily permits can be purchased the same day online at by selecting, “Order Permits.” Arrival time, duration of the stay and location on campus will determine whether a daily permit is needed or advised. Many parking lots do not require a daily permit after 5 p.m. Monday-Friday or on the weekends, however there are some that do. Pricing varies based on permit type.

Hourly parking can be purchased at or by downloading the AMP Park app on a mobile device. Both options require users to have an account, select a desired parking lot or structure, enter the amount of parking time and add vehicle information. The selected parking area will display hourly rates and whether payment is required at that time of day. There is also the ability to add time as needed without restarting the process.

Online purchases can only be made with credit/debit cards.
