The university maintains parking facilities to meet the needs of faculty, staff, residents, and students as well as patients and visitors. Parking on campus is solely at the risk of the owner/operator. The university assumes no responsibility for the security of vehicles or their contents while on campus.
With the exception of patients and visitors, all vehicles parked on campus between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday (except State holidays) are required to display a valid parking permit issued by the KU School of Medicine-Wichita.
Parking privileges at the KU School of Medicine-Wichita are determined on a first come, first served basis. The parking committee reserves the right to alter and/or revoke permit assignments as the needs of individuals or the university community changes. Falsification of any information for the purpose of obtaining a parking permit or repeated violations of the Parking Regulations may result in the forfeiture of all parking permits and fees. A parking permit does not guarantee any specific parking space at any time or the availability of a parking space.
After submitting the application, KUSM-W parking permits can be obtained from the Facilities Management office located in room B050. The office hours are 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday (except State holidays). Employees, residents, and students requesting an annual parking permit will have the choice of either one hang tag or two static cling "repositional" permits.
Purchase of a parking permit entitles you to park one vehicle in a permit-required lot at a time. Individuals sharing a common household must purchase separate parking permits at full price if more than one vehicle will be parked on campus at the same time.
Kansas City campus: If a person holds a Wichita parking permit and visits the Kansas City campus less than once per month, they may register for a KUMC courtesy parking permit and park in the yellow zones.
If a person holds a Wichita parking permit and visits the Kansas City campus more than twice per month, they will need to register online through KUMC's online parking system. After the status of their Wichita parking permit has been verified, they will be authorized access to KUMC's lots on a reciprocal basis.
KUSM-W Facilities office has "proximity cards" available on loan to staff/faculty traveling to KUMC that will allow vehicles to be parked in the Olathe II Visitor Parking Garage while on the Kansas City campus. Contact Facilities for further information at 293-2625 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Temporary permits: New employees may obtain a 30-day temporary permit by submitting the KUSM-W application form. Regular permit holders who may have forgotten to transfer their permit may obtain a one-day permit from the Security Office or Facilities Management. The one-day permit must be immediately displayed in the vehicle to avoid a ticket.
Facilities Management can also be contacted at ext. 3-2625 for further information or specific questions regarding parking permits.
Annual (July 1 - June 30)
Quarterly permit hang tags may be purchased for three month duration (July-Sept, Oct-Dec, Jan-Mar, April-June). Only cash/check payment will be accepted for this option. Amount will be prorated if not purchased at the beginning of the quarter.
Cancellation & Refunds
Cash Customers: A prorated refund amount will be calculated at the time the permit and written request is submitted to Facilities Management at email@example.com. The parking permit(s) must be returned to Facilities before a refund will be processed. There will be a $5 administrative fee deducted from the total amount refunded. Please allow two weeks for processing upon receipt of request.
Payroll Deduction Customers: A cancellation request must be submitted electronically from the payroll deduction for parking form. Select the cancellation option on the form and follow the additional information provided. Voluntary cancellations will be processed upon receipt of the returned parking permit to Facilities Management. The payroll deductions for parking will cease in the two week pay period coinciding with the date Facilities Management receives the parking permit and cancellation request.
Terminations - Permits must be returned upon termination of employment. If the permit was paid through payroll deduction, the balance owed on the permit will be billed to the employee for unreturned permits. If the parking permit is not returned after the payroll deduction has ended, the employee will be responsible for payment of the value of the permit while it is in their possession (whether used or not). Any unpaid balance over 60 days past due will be collected by Facilities Management through the State of Kansas Set Off Program (K.S.A. 74-741).
Tickets issued by the security staff are enforceable as authorized by Kansas Statutes Annotated (K.S.A.) 74-3209 through 74-3216. In addition to the internal misuse fee, K.S.A. 74-3215 provides for prosecution of the campus regulations as misdemeanors in the District Court of Sedgwick County. It is the practice of the university not to pursue this prosecution if the misuse fees are paid in a timely manner.
Parking violations on campus are classified by groups (I through V) and are annotated on the parking ticket. Violation notice fees are as follows:
Group I: $10 (violation fees shall be canceled if corrected and verified by a security officer within seven days of issuance of the notice).
Group II: $25
Group III: $35
Group IV: $100
Group V: Vehicle may be immobilized or towed from the campus at the owner's expense.
Payment of Fines: Violation fees are payable at the facilities office either in person or by mail within 14 calendar days of the issuance date of the notice. Checks shall be made payable to University of Kansas, School of Medicine-Wichita. Cash payments can be made, however only the exact amount may be submitted. A late payment processing fee of $5 shall be levied after 14 calendar days from the date the notice was issued. Credit and debit card payments cannot be accepted.
Employees of the State of Kansas, Medical Practice Association, or medical residents who fail to pay the above fees shall be subject to collection under the State of Kansas Set-Off Program after 60 days as authorized by K.S.A. 74-741. Such fees may be collected by the State of Kansas either through a wage garnishment or the withholding of state income tax refunds.
The University Parking Committee is empowered to review the validity of violation notices. An appeal may be made by completing the online Parking Violation Appeal form or in person in the Facilities Management office no later than 4 p.m. on the 14th calendar day after the violation notice was issued. After 14 days, an appeal may be made only if payment for the violation is included with the appeal form. No appeal may be made after 90 days from the date of the violation notice. If the appeal is granted, all payments shall be refunded.
Vehicles may be towed from the campus at any time if they interfere with the efficient operation of traffic and parking at the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita. Group III, IV, and V university violations subject a vehicle to removal from the campus and impoundment or immobilization.
Violations are posted to the record of the person in whose name a vehicle is titled or in the name of the person to whom the parking permit is issued. All charges for towing and/or storage are the responsibility of that individual. Facilities Management shall release an impounded or immobilized vehicle after payment of all unpaid fines or $10 or 10% of the balance due and a signed agreement to schedule payments for the balance due within 90 days.
Kansas administrative regulations, Chapter 88, Article 4, provides regulations for governing traffic and parking facilities at State colleges and universities. Since the State budget does not provide funds for support of Parking Services, it must therefore be self-supporting.
