Parking at NWACC


NWACC is committed to providing quality parking services to students, faculty, staff and visitors. Feel free to use the campus map to find a parking lot located near your destination on campus. Students, faculty and staff are required to have a current permit/hangtag to park on campus. View further information below to learn more.

 

Student IDs & Parking Hangtags

Hangtags for new or returning students will be distributed at the Student Information Desk in the Student Center beginning August 2, 2021. The parking garage is for students, but has limited number of 24-hour reserved spaces for faculty and staff. There is designated student parking areas around most NWACC buildings. If you park without a hangtag, you will be issued a citation. Parking fines are listed in the parking policy #9004.

Each person parking on campus will be required to display a current parking hangtag. In addition, 24-hour reserved numbered spaces are available in other surface parking areas, but are limited to faculty and staff only. Students must be registered for fall classes and must bring a legally-issued ID such as a driver’s license or passport in order to receive a student ID and parking hang tag. Students who already have an NWACC student ID must bring it with them in order to pick up their new hangtag.

For additional information, contact NWACC's Department of Public Safety (DPS) at the Center for Health Professions (CHP), room 1042.
