Access to central campus is restricted from 7:45 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday–Friday, while school is in session. Visitor parking is available in the Mississippi Street parking garage north of the Kansas Union, accessible from Mississippi Street and from Oread Avenue. Parking is also available on the street. Avoid parking in lots that are KU designated lots, hotel or dorm parking, as ticketing or towing may result.
Pull into garage and park. Take a picture of your license plate (or write number down) and proceed to the pay station within 15 minutes of entering the garage to pre-pay for parking. (Failure to prepay for the length of time you will be parked in the garage will result in a ticket being issued). A parking kiosk is available on levels 1, 4 and 5 of the Mississippi parking garage, SW corner. Payment can be made either by credit card or cash at the kiosk.
The charge to park in the garage is $1.75 for the first hour, and $1.50 for each additional hour, or any portion of an hour. The parking kiosk takes cash or credit card payment.
