Parking Information

Conferences attendees can park in any university parking lot (WSU Parking Services will not be ticketing for the conference).  The best parking lot is the “Gold Lot 1” (at the intersection of 11th Street and Main Street).  It is a short walk (about 4 minutes) across campus to Kryzsko Commons.  “Silver Lot 32” (closest to Kryzsko Commons) is also available, however, it is smaller so parking is limited.
