College Hill Parking Restrictions

NEW: College Hill Parking Prohibitions Ordinance

Each winter, the narrow roadways and on-street parking in the College Hill core area (which includes the area South of Stadium Way, East of Grand Avenue, North of Maiden Lane/Oak Street, and West of WSU campus) add to the already difficult job of City of Pullman Maintenance & Operations staff who work to complete seasonal maintenance tasks. As snow, ice, and debris build up, it becomes increasingly difficult to clear narrow roadways, often resulting in streets reduced to a single lane of travel. In some cases, roadways become impassible, restricting access for residents, visitors, and emergency vehicles. These challenges are compounded by the high volume of vehicles present while WSU is in session.


In order to improve City services by facilitating snow, gravel, and leaf removal, Pullman City Council has approved a new ordinance (12.17.010), restricting parking in portions of the College Hill core area during WSU fall, winter, and spring breaks.  Parking is now restricted on the following streets between the hours of 2 a.m. and 9 a.m. during WSU breaks:


NE Colorado Street from NE D Street to NE Opal Street

NE Campus Street from NE Opal Street to NE B Street

NE B Street from NE Colorado Street to NE California Street

NE California Street from NE B Street to NE Ruby Street

NE Maiden Lane from NE Whitman Street to NE Opal Street

NE D Street from NE Colorado Street to NE Alpha Road

NE C Street from NE Colorado Street to NE Alpha Road

NE A Street from NE Colorado Street to California Street

NE Maple Street from NE Campus to NE Colorado Stree

NE Linden Street from NE B Street to NE Monroe Street



WSU Breaks:
Fall: November 19-23, 2018
Winter: December 17, 2018 - January 4, 2019
Spring: March 11-15, 2019



WSU Transportation Services is providing alternate parking options for those who may be impacted by these restrictions. During the identified WSU breaks, parking will be available in the signed portion (SE corner) of the gravel BLUE 1 lot across from the South Fairway Intermural Fields. Those who intend to leave a vehicle in this area over the break are asked to notify WSU Transportation Services by sending their name, WSU ID number, license plate number and state, make and color of vehicle, and personal contact information to This email address is being protected from spambots.
