Students with motor vehicles need the minimum amount of liability insurance required by state law. There is no free parking at UMKC, day or night. Students must park and pay at the meters or purchase a parking permit. Metered areas are located throughout the campus and the current rate for metered parking is 1 dollar per hour. Anytime a vehicle is parked in a metered space the meter MUST be paid, even if a University parking permit has been purchased and is displayed on the vehicle.
Permits are available on a single semester basis, or multi-semester basis. Permits may be purchased at the Parking Operations Office or through the Parking Operations web site http://www.umkc.edu/adminfinance/parking/. Permit charges will be added to your student fees. Individuals who require disability parking should contact the Parking Operations Office at 816-235-5256 for information. The Parking Operations Office is located in Room 221 of the Administrative Center. Office hours are 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
