Resident Parking

Permit sales for new students begin September 14, 2016, and continue during orientation week, and throughout the school year.
If you choose to bring your car to campus, you must purchase a valid permit and follow the campus parking rules to avoid accumulating citations, which may result in a wheel-lock.

For information about using your student ID card with quarterly validation sticker as a bus pass, and getting around Olympia via bus and bike, check out the Greener Commuting program.

Residential Parking

  • Residents of Buildings A-U

For residents living in Dorms A-U, parking lot F is a short walk to the dorms. To purchase a decal for this lot, visit the Parking Services Office or your my.evergreen web payment page to order & pay for your decal on-line. Once you purchase your decal on-line, visit Parking Services to pick it up.

Your decal for Lot F is also valid in the main campus lots, B and C. Your decal is not valid, however, in the MODS lot.

If you have visitors, they may park in lot F by purchasing a daily passes at the Pay-&-Display machine at the entrance to F lot. You can purchase up to 5-days' worth of parking passes at the F-lot machine. Please ensure that your multiple-day parking-pass purchase does not include Saturday and Sunday as there is no charge to park those days, and the pass machine does not have the capability to differentiate between weekdays and weekends.

  • Residents of the MODS

Because parking is limited in the MODs, that lot is restricted to residents of the MODs and their visitors, and RAD (Housing) Facilities vendors. Please be sure to indicate that you live in the MODs when you purchase a parking decal, to avoid a prohibited-area citation. If youlive in the MODs and are having visitors, advise them to pay for parking and park in F-lot, or contact Parking Services and ask for a clearance to use the daily pass or BCF decal in the MODs.

The MODS lot is strictly enforced, and all vehicles must display a valid MOD decal at all times or obtain a clearance by contacting Parking Services to use daily passes or BCF decals in the MODs.

Short-Term Visitor Parking

If you're having visitors, they may park in either F-lot and purchase a day pass at the Pay-&-Display machine or choose to park at the meters in the housing loop (up to 1 Hr). These meters are enforced 24-7.
