Parking On Campus
Parking on campus is coordinated through the Office of Public Safety and Police Services (PSPS). PSPS’s main functions on campus are the protection of life and property, the enforcement of laws, rules, and regulations, maintaining a safe and secure environment, parking and traffic control, and the coordination of shuttle services.. As with many colleges, parking availability at convenient locations and times is at a premium. For the most up to date informatin about parking, please visit Public Safety and Police Services here.
As part of the transportation fee students pay, the University provides an on and off campus shuttle service to assist students in getting around campus and downtown. The campus shuttle runs each weekday during fall and spring semesters. There is also a late night shuttle loop on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings that runs until 3:00 am. The shuttle buses are ADA accessible and accommodate those in a wheelchair. In order to ride the shuttle, present your valid KU student ID to the driver upon entering the bus. For more information and up to date schedules, visit the shuttle website.
Parking meters can be found at the McFarland Student Union parking lot (A1). The purpose of these meters is to promote vehicle turn-over in order to allow students access to important services rather than provide all-day parking. The parking meters are enforced 7 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday. The cost is 10 cents per 15 minutes with a maximum of 60 minutes. A vehicle with an expired meter may be ticketed every 2 hours at a cost of $10 per ticket.
How to Avoid a Parking Ticket on Campus (If your prmary vehicle is registered)
• Loaner/Rental Vehicle: Obtain a temporary permit from Public Safety and Police Services in Old Main. Be sure to bring the vehicle registration card with you.
• Vehicle Breakdown: Notify Public Safety immediately and obtain a “DISABLED VEHICLE” placard from the Communications Center to place on your dashboard.
• Park in the correct location(s): Students must park in their assigned area(s) in a white lined parking space.
• Commuter Students with less than 32 completed credits are not given the same parking assignments as students with 32+ credits. Know where your decal allows you to park!
When parking in the borough of Kutztown, be aware of all areas where parking is restricted and pay attention to signs and time limitations as parking attendants are very active.
