Monthly parking

Consider signing up for a payroll deduction of $35 per month if you're not able to use typical Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) methods but are required to be on Campus a significant portion of the month.

You can also purchase one month of parking for $35 without signing up for payroll deduction. Visit the Parking Office at 1110 Capitol Way S, Suite 210, Wednesdays, 8:30-3 p.m., or email parking@des.wa.gov.

Cost savings breakdown:

  • After 13 days, it becomes more cost effective to sign up for monthly parking. ($2.80*13 = $36.40 compared to the monthly parking pass rate of $35/month)

Instructions for campus employees to sign up for monthly parking:

  • Sign up for parking online
  • A parking sticker will be mailed to you
  • If you need to park before you receive the sticker:
    • Print your receipt and place it in the back window of your vehicle
    • Or call the Parking Offce and provide your license plate number.
