General Guidlines

General Parking Guidelines

In general, a WKU parking permit is required to park on the Bowling Green main and south campuses, Monday through Friday.

Permit eligibility is determined by employment status for faculty and staff members, and residency status for students.  The type of permit issued determines where you may park.

Only purchase WKU parking permits from Parking & Transportation Services.  Ownership of permits is not transferable. A permit purchased from an outside source may have been lost, stolen or forged.

Before purchasing your parking permit, have your student 800 number and email password ready.  You will also need your vehicle's make, model, year, color and license plate number.
