KSU welcomes alumni and visitors to its campus year round whether from community events or tours for prospective students and parents. To accommodate our guests as conveniently as possible, the Department of Parking and Transportation (DPT) provides pay-to-park areas for visitors in the Central Deck and in the Visitor Parking surface lot on University Road.

Alumni Parking

KSU Alumni who contribute annually may park in the Visitor’s lot.

Retiree Parking

Retired faculty and staff who are currently employed by KSU in a full or temporary/part time status may park in reserved lots and must display a current campus parking permit. Emeriti Retirees not employed at the university currently full or part time are allowed in the Visitor’s lot. Please indicate to the parking attendant that you are an Emeriti, upon exiting the lot.

Visitor Parking

On-campus parking is coordinated through the DPT. All Visitors to Campus should be instructed to park at the Welcome Center. If you are hosting an event at KSU an online Visitor/Event Parking Request form needs to be submitted. The Visitor/Event Parking Request can be accessed by clicking HERE.

The University cannot guarantee on-campus parking for visitors without a reservation in the Welcome Center.

On special occasions (sporting events, concerts, etc.), parking and traffic limitations may be imposed by Auxiliary Services Parking.
