KPU paid parking returns September 1

With a return to more on-campus activity planned at KPU for Fall 2021, the temporary suspension of parking charges implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic will come to an end on September 1, 2021.
For the return to campus, KPU is moving to an app called hangTag for hourly and daily parking, and the hangTag website for weekly, monthly, semester, and annual parking needs. The hangTag app allows students, employees, and visitors to pay from anywhere using their phones and extend parking periods without returning to a meter. Depending on your need, you can pay by the hour, day, week, month, semester, or year, with annual registration lasting for one year from the date of purchase.
Although it is called hangTag, the new system removes the need to display a parking permit in your car because parking attendants will check license plates electronically in the registered database. The hangTag app and the hangTag website allow multiple license plates to be registered in the system, although you can only bring one at a time to campus. In addition to the hangTag app and the hangTag website, pay parking meters will still be available on campus for hourly and daily parking needs.
Registration for hangTag opens August 1, 2021, in preparation for the restoration of parking charges on September 1.
hangTag is available on iOS and Android.


KPU encourages students, employees, and guests to make sustainable choices when traveling to and from all campuses.  Everyone is encouraged to think beyond the car and consider less expensive, healthier, and more environmentally friendly ways of commuting such as carpool, transit, cycling, or walking to KPU. 

If you need to bring a vehicle to campus, Pay parking is in effect at all KPU campuses 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Vehicles are authorized to park in designated parking stalls only.  Please see the Permit Parking and Visitor & Daily Parking options that are available to you.
