Parking is a subject that each of us relates to on a daily basis. Whether you park close to your destination or end up having to walk across campus, it is important that we all know and understand the parking regulations that are enforced on campus.
Parking regulations are enforced by issuing Washburn tickets or city citations. Tickets and citations are issued by the officer who observed the offense. Washburn parking tickets have a $25.00 fine. If the $25.00 fine is not paid within five (5) business days, a $10.00 late fee will be added. Washburn tickets must be paid in the Business Office in Morgan Hall room 205 or mailed to Washburn University c/o Cashier, 1700 SW College, Topeka, KS 66621-1110. If you fail to pay the fine, and or late fees for a Washburn ticket your transcript will be withheld and you will not be allowed to enroll until all fines and fees have been paid.
You may request a hearing to contest the issuance of a University ticket issued by using the following procedure:
City citation fines vary depending on the offense and may include a court appearance, court fees and a fine. City citations that are not paid within 14 days of being issued will result in an arrest warrant being issued for the individual listed on the citation. City citations must be handled through the municipal court located at 214 SE 8th Ave, Topeka KS 66603-3997, telephone 785-368-3776, or by mail.
There are parking lots and areas on campus that have restricted parking. These restrictions include special permits, specific times, specific vehicles or no parking at all. Violators are subject to either a Washburn ticket or a city citation.
Several parking lots on campus are marked No Overnight Parking from 2AM-5AM. Vehicles found in these lots during the overnight hours are subject to a ticket/citation. Camping or sleeping in or around vehicles is prohibited everywhere on campus without prior approval from the Director of the Washburn University Police Department. Parking oversized vehicles, or any vehicle that cannot be legally parked in a single parking space, is also prohibited without prior approval from the University Police Department.
These regulations, as well as a campus map, may be obtained from the Washburn University Police Department or by visiting the Human Resources website.
