Parking at the SRC
The Student Recreation Center offers a parking lot off of North Fairway Drive. The lot can be used by any WSU Zone Permit (excluding resident parking passes) or a temporary parking pass can be obtained at the permit vending machine located inside the SRC before the turnstiles. The first 90 minutes is free and additional time can be purchased for $.50 per hour. WSU Transportation Services monitors this lot Monday-Friday.
If the lot is full, overflow parking at the tennis court across the street is available. This lot is a red lot and required a red pass. The lot also sells day passes at $.50/hour or $2/day, however, the pass obtained at the SRC Lot does not work at the Tennis Court Lot.
Remember, you can share the ride and share the cost.
Other Free Parking Options
Many patrons choose to utilize free parking options that are available near the SRC. The Valley Road playfield at the corner of Valley Road and Orchard Drive offers free parking Monday-Friday after 3:00 p.m., however, you will need a WSU pass if you wish to park overnight in that lot. Another option is to visit the SRC before the hours of 7:00 a.m. or after 5:00 p.m. when the green parking zone on North Fairway Drive do not require permits.
