WAC 504-15-540   Zone permits -- Availability and use.   The management and assignment of parking zones is designed to provide a reliable parking space to permit holders. However, uncontrolled access to parking areas and unexpected parking demand make it impossible to guarantee a parking space in a permit holder's assigned zone. Every effort will be made via surveys and limits on permit sales, to ensure that permit holders are not displaced from their assigned zones. The only exception to this will be that the sale of blue permits will not be limited.

Staff and students are generally assigned to specific parking areas, called zones. Parking zones are color-coded with respect to their price and numbered with respect to the specific parking area assignment of each permit holder. Permit holders may park in their assigned zone as reflected by the combination of color and number on their permit and corresponding sign, or they may park in other zones as described below.

(1) Orange permits: Orange permit holders may park in their numerically assigned orange zone, or in any green, yellow, red, or blue zone. These permits may be available on a temporary basis during the summer session.

(2) Green permits: Green permit holders may park in their numerically assigned green zone, or in any yellow, red, or blue zone. These permits may be available on a temporary basis during the summer session.

(3) Yellow permits: Yellow permit holders may park in their numerically assigned yellow zone, or in any red or blue zone. These permits may be available on a temporary basis.

(4) Red permits: Red permit holders may park in their numerically assigned red zone or in any blue zone. These permits may be available on a temporary basis.

(5) Gray permits (((resident priority parking))): Gray permit holders may park in their numerically assigned gray zone, or in any blue zone. These permits may be available on a temporary basis. Gray permit holders must turn in their gray permit for refund or credit toward another permit, if applicable, immediately upon moving out of a residence hall. Only resident students are eligible for gray permits.

(6) Blue permits (peripheral parking): Blue permit holders may park in any blue zone. These permits are available on a temporary basis.

(7) Crimson permits. Crimson permit holders may park in their numerically assigned crimson zone, or in the numerically corresponding gray zone (e.g., a crimson 1 permit is valid in the gray 1 zone, but not in the gray 2 zone), or in any blue zone. Crimson permit holders must turn in their crimson permit for a refund or credit toward another permit, if applicable, immediately upon moving out of the residence hall. Only resident students are eligible for crimson permits.

WAC 504-15-580   Special indicator decals/hangers.   Special indicator decals or hangers may be issued to staff and student permit holders who have otherwise valid parking permits in the following cases:

(1) Service indicator decals/hangers which are valid for a maximum of fifteen minutes in a marked service zone. A separate mall service indicator allows a maximum of fifteen-minute parking in the pedestrian mall. These are available to staff or students who must use a private vehicle for university business. They are issued on an annual or daily basis after the approval of the parking manager or his/her designee.

(2) Night parking indicator decals/hangers which are valid in parking zones up to thirty minutes after the permit times begin, and thirty minutes before the permit times end. For example, if permits are required in a parking zone from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., the night parking indicator is valid in that zone from 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 a.m. Night parking indicators are not valid at any time in crimson zones, gray zones, meter spaces, restricted spaces, or parking zones that require a parking permit at all times.

(3) Reserved parking indicator decals/hangers which are valid in parking spaces that are signed for the corresponding permit and indicator.

WAC 504-15-600   Disability permits.   The university and parking services strongly supports the provision of disability parking spaces at a reasonable proximity to campus buildings for people of disability.

There are two types of disability permits:

(1) Permanent physical disability. An annual disability permit is available to permanently disabled university employees and students at the established fee. Holders of annual permits may park in orange, green, yellow, red, crimson, gray, and blue zones, and metered spaces. They may not park in service zones or reserved spaces. The fee for an annual disability permit is equal to the blue zone fee. Payment of regular posted fees is required in pay lots.

(2) Temporary physical disability. Temporary disability permits will be issued to temporarily disabled staff and students for a maximum of six weeks, although they may be renewed.

Employees and students must obtain a temporary disability form from parking services. These disabled parking privileges will be granted only after submission of the form that shows the applicant meets established physical limitations. The form must be completed by a health care provider. Parking services will not accept substitute forms or letters.
