Individuals who have retired from EWU are extended the benefit of free parking when visiting campus. These permits are presented to you in appreciation of your many years of dedicated service at Eastern Washington University.
You and your spouse are invited to use your permit anytime you wish to visit the campus. Please note, the permit is not allowed to be used by a spouse, child or relative who is regularly employed by the University, or is enrolled as a student.
If you are re-employed by EWU, you can purchase a parking permit for half price, based on availability.
Parking during home athletic events is handled by the Athletic Department. Retiree permits do not entitle you to free parking at special events.
Lost Retiree Permit
The retiree permits are serially numbered and if a permit is lost, a lost report must be made to Parking Services. If a permit is stolen, a stolen report must be made to Parking Services and the Campus Police Department. A replacement will be issued at no cost for the first time. Any additional lost or stolen permits may incur a replacement charge.
Authorized Parking Areas
You and your spouse may park at any of the University parking lots.
