WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita State University has completed an agreement with Extra Space Management Inc. to lease a parking lot at the corner of 21st Street and Oliver beginning Monday.

The lot is located south of the Extra Space Storage facility. It contains about 240 spots and is a half mile from the main campus.

It will serve as the university’s primary park-and-ride lot with quick WSU Shuttle System service to the main campus.

The lot will be utilized by WSU for the fall and spring semesters.

No permit will be required to park in the new park-and-ride lot or in the existing park-and-ride lot at the Hughes Metropolitan Complex at 29th Street and Oliver.

WSU Shuttle System service to the new lot and regular WSU Police Department security patrols will also begin on Aug. 11.

The shuttle system, now in its second year, features two shuttle routes and 13 stops on the WSU main campus and at satellite facilities.
