Parking Information

NOTE: Parking is not included in registration.

Parking Garage Option:
Hourly parking is available in the Mississippi St. Parking Garage next to the Kansas Union. Enter the Parking Garage by pulling a ticket. You must keep the ticket with you; it is required for exit. When exiting at end of day, drive to the exit lane and insert the ticket you obtained to enter the garage. Parking is $1.75 for the first hour or any portion of an hour, and $1.50 per hour for all subsequent hours. Other KU visitor parking options can be found on the KU Parking website.

Park and Ride (Lot 301) option:
KU Parking has offered to extend the faculty and staff rate of $2 parking passes for the Park and Ride parking lot located at 23rd street and Iowa to our guests attending Social Work Day. You would then be able to catch a KU bus (41 Campus Circulator Yellow) to the main campus for free. The bus stops at the Park and Ride lot every 15 minutes from 6:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. and every eight minutes from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Once on the main campus, you would get off the bus at the Bailey Hall stop, which is two buildings away from the Kansas Union. At the end of the day, you can get back on the same bus at Bailey Hall every 10 minutes from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and estimated every 20 minutes from 5:50 to 10:20 p.m. Find the 41 Campus Circulator yellow schedule here. For additional information regarding parking on the KU campus, please see the KU Parking website.
