1.0. The University of Kansas, through the Board of Regents and its administrative officers, may, by state law, establish parking policies and procedures.
Any motorized vehicle operated on the property of the University of Kansas is subject to all policies governing parking at the institution.
The chancellor of the University of Kansas or his designated representative is empowered to create, modify, or preempt parking in controlled areas of the campus. The operation of a motor vehicle or bicycle on the University of Kansas Medical Center property is a privilege granted by the university and is not an inherent right of any faculty/staff member, student or visitor. The following regulations are intended to facilitate the work of the faculty, staff and visitors through control of the parking and movement of motor vehicles while on campus.
Permit holders at the University of Kansas Medical Center may have similar parking privileges on the Lawrence and Wichita campuses as indicated by the type of permit displayed on their vehicle.
To be valid, a permit must be clearly visible and displayed on the vehicle in the prescribed manner. Any student, faculty or staff member, or other person with university business who wishes to regularly park a motor vehicle on property owned or controlled by the university must purchase a university parking permit. The purchase of a permit does not guarantee a parking space. Lack of space is not considered a valid excuse for violation of a regulation. Vehicles must be parked in a designated space. The fact that one vehicle is parked in such a manner as to occupy more than one parking space is not an acceptable excuse for another operator to do the same.
2.0 The university maintains various types of parking facilities to meet the needs of faculty, staff, employees and students. These include color zone permit lots, time-controlled spaces, and facilities controlled by gates. A parking permit does not imply or guarantee a specific parking space or lot at any particular time, and parking privileges may be modified or preempted by the authority of the chancellor of the university. The university assumes no responsibility for security of vehicles or their contents, while moving or parked in the areas subject to university jurisdiction. Lots may be slippery when wet or hazardous during adverse winter weather. Caution should be executed.
2.1 Application for Parking: Parking privileges at the University of Kansas, Kansas City campus, are determined as follows:
Assignment of parking area is based upon:
Each motor vehicle operated or parked on university property by any student, faculty member, staff member, must display a valid University of Kansas Medical Center parking permit. There is no free parking on campus.
The Parking Services Department reserves the right to alter or revoke permit assignments as the needs of the individual or the university community change. Falsification of any information for the purpose of obtaining a parking permit or repeated violations of rules and regulations may result in the forfeiture of all parking permits, and parking fees paid.
The Emeritus Retirement Parking Pass is available only to qualified retirees from the university. Verification of university affiliation must be presented prior to the retirement date. The Emeritus Retirement Parking pass is valid in Blue, Red, and Yellow parking zones. This pass is not valid in the parking garages. The Emeritus Retirement pass is not intended for daily use, but only as courtesy parking for medical center related business. An employee returning back to the medical center, after a period of retirement, no longer qualifies for the Emeritus pass. The employee must return the Emeritus Pass back to the Parking Service Office upon re-employment. Employment status is considered as full- or part-time status.
2.2 Parking permits: Parking assignees shall, upon payment of the scheduled fee, receive a parking permit decal. This permit shall be valid only when permanently attached to the vehicle registered with Parking Services, in the manner specified on the sticker or as otherwise authorized by Parking Services. It is not transferable to any other vehicle without authorization from Parking Services. A parking permit entitles the assignee to park only in color zones or lots designated by the permit, as well as other lots as follows:
|Blue||Any color zone|
|Red||Any Red, Yellow zones|
|Yellow||Any Yellow zone|
|Board of Regents Pass||All zones on both campuses|
|Emeritus||All color zones except disabled, loading zones, meter areas|

2.3 Medical Parking: Faculty, staff, or students who require parking privileges because of health problems should bring a signed statement form from their attending physician to the parking office. This statement should include a time frame of their physical limitations. This is a short-term temporary parking pass that allows parking in the Red zones for up to four months only.
Individual Medical Recovery Parking Pass: The parking fee for the temporary Individual Medical Recovery Pass for employees and students is the pro-rated difference between the Yellow and Red zone parking fees. If the employee or student does not have a Yellow permit, the fee for the medical permit is the prorated price of the Red zone parking permit. Official state disabled applications for disabled parking exceeding four months are available in the Parking Services Office.
2.4 Disabled Parking Permit: Parking is by special permit available only for disabled persons.

Persons unable to comply with this requirement shall be subject to a replacement fee.

The fee charged for the multiple car permits shall be the cost of one permit plus an additional charge per vehicle.

Disabled spaces are available in the facility. Use of the disabled spaces are restricted to vehicles displaying state disabled identification. Visitors shall be responsible for violations.
3.1 The University's Outpatient Validation Program - Outpatient parking is available in the parking facilities at a reduced rate. A ticket validation is required from the clinic visited to receive the reduced rate. The validation must be stamped directly on the ticket. Validations stapled or taped on a parking ticket is not acceptable. It is the responsibility of each department to secure their validation stamp to prevent misuse or abuse of the University Validation Program.

The exception would be if a bona-fide outpatient appointment exists and they are registered online in advance via the Online Courtesy Parking Request form.
Employees and students must exit the parking facility immediately following the clinic appointment. Only bona-fide outpatients being treated in our clinics are eligible for a reduced parking rate for the time they are being seen in the clinic.

5.3 Excessive unpaid violations: Excessive violations exist whenever five or more citation notices have been posted to the record of the person in whose name a motorized vehicle is titled and the fines have not been paid or appealed. Parking any vehicle on campus property after having five or more unpaid violation notices is in violation of these regulations. The vehicle is subject to impoundment and removal from the campus or immobilization. This immobilization action refers to five citations per individual, not per each vehicle. An accumulation of five citations issued to one individual with multiple vehicles is cause for the immobilization of the vehicle registered to the individual. In addition, the Parking Services Department may revoke the privileges of operating a vehicle on the university campus.
5.4 Towing and impoundment of vehicles:a) Vehicles repeatedly found on campus without a valid University parking permit will be towed. Removal shall be made irrespective of the knowledge that said vehicle belongs to or is operated by a person or persons eligible for university parking permit privileges.
Vehicles may be towed from campus at any time if they interfere with the efficient operation of the traffic and parking at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Group III and IV university violations subject a vehicle to removal from the campus and impoundment, or immobilization. Violations are posted to the record of the person in whose name a motorized vehicle is titled or in the name of the person who has registered the vehicle with Parking Services. Any motor vehicle that has broken down on university property must be reported immediately to the University of Kansas Medical Center Parking Services Department. Major repairs to vehicles on university property are prohibited. All charges for towing and/or storage are the responsibility of the individual.
Vehicles subject to and pending tow will be issued a tow warning. You must contact the Parking Office within 48 hours or the date of the notice affixed to your vehicle. If contact is not made within 48 hours, your vehicle will be towed and impounded when sighted on campus.
5.5: Collection procedures
If an employee owes fines amounting to $25 or more and such fines are past due 60 days, Parking Services shall begin collection action as established by the state of Kansas, the Board of Regents and the University of Kansas Medical Center. An administrative service fee of 25% to 35% of the amount owed will also be assessed for all collection activities. If an employee continues to receive citations during the collection process, all new citations will be included in the collection cycle 10 days after the issuance of each additional citation.

7.3 Statutory Authorization
Kansas Statutes Annotated (K.S.A.) Sections 74-3209 through 74-3216 authorize the Board of Regents to promulgate regulations for the control of parking and traffic on the University of Kansas Medical Center of Kansas City and Wichita campus and to establish misuse fees for violations of theregulations. Kansas Administrative Regulations, Chapter 88, Article 4, provides for regulations, governing traffic and parking on the roads, streets, driveways, and parking facilities at the state colleges and universities. The state budget does not provide funds for support of Parking Services and must, therefore, be self-supporting.
