PARKING TIPS

PARKING TIPS: 

School Bus/Charter Bus parking – If dropping off your group at the KU Memorial Union for a campus tour, your driver must stage the bus at Memorial Stadium (“STAD” & yellow lot #94 on the campus map) to avoid ticketing at the Union.  

At the KU Visitor Center buses cannot stay parked in our lot. Your driver must stage the bus at the Lied Center (“LIED” & yellow lot #300 on the campus map) to avoid ticketing at the Visitor Center. 

Car/Van parking – If you travel to campus in a car or van you may park at the KU Visitor Center (“KUVC” & red lot #400 on the campus map) at 1502 Iowa Street. We will issue you a parking permit at the front desk to display on your dashboard.  

For group activities scheduled at the KU Union you'll want to park at the Mississippi Street Parking Garage (North of the KU Union and “MSPK” on the campus map). We will give you a barcode to scan as you exit the garage that will validate your parking fee.
