Contractor Parking Policy
Any individual parking on campus is expected to comply with all parking policies and rules established by the university.
The location of a perimeter fence must be coordinated with the WKU project manager and Parking & Transportation Services for any staging area that reduces existing campus parking. Parking within a perimeter fence boundary does not require a parking permit. Activity within the perimeter fence is the responsibility of the construction firm.
When parking outside a perimeter fence, a university parking permit is required.
When construction activities will affect traffic patterns or access to parking, contractors are to coordinate these activities with the WKU project manager and Parking & Transportation Services a minimum of 48 hours prior to the event.
