Pacific Lutheran University welcomes all visitors to our campus and offers free visitor’s parking passes to friends, family, guests and prospective students. Parking regulations are strictly enforced, so we ask that all visitors stop by the Campus Safety office to pick up a pass before continuing with your visit. There are three 15 minute parking spots in the Library Lot directly across Park Avenue from our office where you can park while obtaining your pass.

Visitor’s passes allow you to park in any non-gated lot, providing that you follow all regulatory signs (not parking in reserved or disabled parking spots, unless properly registered with the state). If you receive a parking ticket while visiting, we ask that you bring it back to our office with your name, address and phone number clearly printed on the back.

Per Residential Life over night guests are limited to no more than 7 days with in a month and 4 days in a row.  Campus Safety’s guest parking pass procedures will reflect this policy.
