Student Parking Information

WCL Facilities has combined forces with AU Parking & Traffic and created a new online parking portal to manage your parking permit needs. Please click here to log in.

Our History

About Our Parking Permits

As a condition of enrollment at the Washington College of Law, students are required to read and sign a copy of the AU Parking Policy. The policy prohibits students parking in the streets surrounding the law school and American University's main campus. Students rescind the use of their zone 3 permit and therefore, possession of a valid zone 3 sticker does not constitute an exclusion from the parking policy.

Any student who has not signed a copy of the parking policy is in violation of their student agreement with the University and must sign a copy immediately.

For more information, contact Facilities Management at (202) 274-4357.

Student Parking Permits

Effective Fall 2016 semester, all WCL students can purchase a parking permit through the AU Parking Portal. All other students can purchase hourly parking in the WCL Garage.

Parking permits for the new school year are available after August 8, 2016 and are sold throughout Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Fall permits expire December 31st; while Spring, Summer, and Annual permits expire August 15th. Between semesters, students who purchased only a Fall semester permit are required to renew their parking permit stickers.

Occasional parking permits are to be purchased and picked up in the Facilities Management Office (Room YT05) during normal business hours. Effective May 1, 2015 parking permits are billed to Student Accounts. The Occasional Parking Permits are available to be purchased once a month by check or credit card only.

Other Vehicle Permits

Motorcycles

Effective August 1, 2016, motorcyclists must be parked in a valid parking space. They must either purchase a permit from the Office of Parking and Traffic Services or pay at Pay-As-You-Go stations located in the WCL parking garage. Motorcycles are not issued a sticker, but instead are assigned an electronic permit. Motorcycle permits allow a motorcycle to park in any general parking space on campus. Motorcycles may not park in bicycle parking areas or on sidewalks.

Scooters

Scooters are not required to purchase a parking permit, but they must be parked within the designated scooter parking in the bicycle parking area. Scooters are two-wheeled vehicles with a piston displacement not more than fifty (50) cubic centimeters. Furthermore, a Scooter is defined by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, §571.123, as a motorcycle that:

  • Has a platform for the operator’s feet or has integrated footrests,
  • Has step-through architecture, meaning that the part of the vehicle forward of the operator’s seat and between the legs of an operator seated in the riding position, is lower in height than the operator’s seat.

Bicycles

Bicycles parked on campus must comply with the following regulations:

  • When driven on streets or in areas intended for use by motor vehicles, bicycle riders will observe all applicable traffic rules and regulations applicable to motor vehicles.
  • When parked, bicycles must be in bicycle racks or other spaces/areas designated for their use. Bicycles must be parked clear of sidewalks, ramps, building entrances and handrails/fences.
  • AU reserves the right to remove abandoned bicycles at its discretion.

Prorated Parking Permit Rates

Semester and Annual parking permits will pro-rate at checkout when purchased through the parking portal.
