Eligible students, faculty, and staff who are not able to park near their primary workplace will be able to use the ParkSmart option, which allows permit holders to park at West Campus for less than $10 per month, or $120 total per academic year. In addition, full-time benefits-eligible faculty and staff who earn less than $45,000 per year can purchase the ParkSmart permit for only $39 per academic year.
Employees whose primary work location is at West Campus will not be eligible to purchase a ParkSmart permit.
The permit is valid in only in ParkSmart spaces in the surface lot located east of the West Campus building and on the fifth and sixth levels of the West Campus Garage, 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
Transportation is readily available between West Campus and the Danforth Campus. Passengers who choose to ride the MetroLink can access the Big Bend station and Skinker stations in less than five minutes.
The West Campus shuttle service is also a great option. The service picks up and drops off passengers at the corner of Jackson and Forsyth at West Campus. The shuttles also service the east end of campus. The shuttles are equipped with GPS technology, allowing passengers to track them in real time via the WUSTL Mobile app. A valid WashU ID is required to ride. WashU reserves the right to refuse service for any reason and to those without a valid WashU ID.
