All students, staff and faculty who park a vehicle on Gonzaga University property must register their vehicle with Campus Security and Public Safety. This applies to all vehicles on campus, including motorcycles. Parking lots are designated and posted by permit color and are restricted to certain groups (faculty and staff, law students, residence halls, rental units, etc.).
Permits for the 2021-2022 school year go on sale online August 18th.
Beginning August 18th parking permits may be purchased online. You will need your vehicle license plate and Gonzaga ID number. If you do not know your ID number, contact the Registrar's office (509) 313-6592. Due to concerns related to coronavirus, we are requiring parking permits to be mailed directly to students, staff and faculty members. Please provide your campus mailing address (MSC Box or AD Box) with your purchase as indicated. For students who do not have a campus mailing address, permits can be mailed locally. In this case, please provide your local address. Allow two weeks for processing.
All other permits can be picked up at the Campus Security office, Huetter Mansion, 503 E Sharp Ave.,
Mon – Fri, 9:00 – 4:00 beginning Aug 25. The office will be open Saturday, August 28, 9:00 – 2:00.
Parking permits will be required to park on campus after Sept 10.
Visitors to Campus
Visitors must obtain a visitor pass from the Admissions Visit Office, Law library circulation desk, visiting the Parking Office at 503 E. Sharp or calling (509) 313-6147, or by prior arrangement online. There are Visitor stalls at various locations on campus. If you are a visitor and have received a citation for “No Current Permit” you can have that citation waived. Current Students, Staff and Faculty are not Visitors.
Parking Rules and Regulations
A copy of the parking rules and regulations is available from the Parking office, or available online.
If you received a citation at Gonzaga University and are not a visitor, you can pay your fine or appeal your citation. As an incentive to pay fines promptly, citations paid within 7 days of issuance will be reduced to half the price. Please visit our online portal to pay or appeal your citation, or visit the Parking Office at 503 E. Sharp to pay in person. All unpaid citations will be sent to an outside collection agency after 90 days.
Hours of Enforcement
University parking rules and regulations are enforced every day year-round unless otherwise specified. A heavier emphasis on parking patrol will occur during regular business hours throughout the academic year. Anyone with a valid permit, regardless of color, may park in any non-residential lot after 5:00 pm until the following 8:00am Monday through Friday, on weekends, and on University holidays and breaks. Parking in fire lanes, reserved stalls, disabled person stalls, sidewalks, brick, lawn, construction and maintenance areas is prohibited and enforced every day year-round.
