Reciprocal Agreement

Reciprocal Parking Agreements

The University of Idaho and Washington State University (Pullman) have developed a cooperative parking arrangement for the purpose of enhancing the accessibility to either campus for faculty, staff, and students participating in cooperative programs and cross listed courses. Selected parking permits from each university have been deemed valid in specific parking areas. Washington State University satellite campus parking permits are NOT valid on U of I campus. U of I permit holders should consult Washington State University Parking Services with any questions about parking on the Pullman campus at 509-335-7275.

NEW: WSU launches “virtual permits” and license plate recognition (LPR) enforcement Fall of 2019

  1. How does this work for U of I parking permits with reciprocal privileges at WSU?
    1. WSU will continue to honor U of I permits as they have in the past (see below for specific permits)
    2. No registration required
    3. When the license plate isn’t recognized, enforcement personnel will check for an appropriate U of I parking permit in the lower, driver side windshield
  2. What about when WSU students, staff and faculty with “virtual permits” visit U of I?
    1. WSU will issue a semester long paper permit to WSU annual permit holders who need to park at U of I; permit must be displayed in lower driver’s side windshield
  3. Both U of I and WSU parking and transportation personnel will closely monitor this process and would like to hear your feedback!
