Guest Parking & Non-Permit Holders

The charge to park in each garage is $1.75 for the first hour, and $1.50 for each additional hour, or any portion of an hour. 

Hourly parking is for visitors and others who don't have a KU parking permit. To use hourly parking:

  • KU uses license plate recognition for parking enforcement in the garages.
  • Pull slowly into the garage and find a place to park. ADA/Limited mobility and reserved/service stalls require a special permit.
  • Proceed to the pay station within 15 minutes of entering the garage or use the ParkMobile app to pre-pay for parking.
  • The first hour (or any portion of an hour) is $1.75, and all subsequent hours are $1.50.
  • Pay stations accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or cash. Have exact change if paying by cash, as pay stations do not give change.
