Parking: Free, but Limited. Stay Cool. Plan Ahead.
Parking is free — but limited — at Edmonds College. Allow time to find a parking space and consider using the less often used lots listed below. Students may park in any lot except those marked for staff (lots A, O, P, and Q) or visitors and carpool spaces (lot L).
Student Parking Permits
Parking permit stickers are required on student vehicles. The first permit is free, any additional permits are $15. These can be transferred from vehicle to vehicle but each person is issued one per year.
Due to the college’s remote operations during COVID-19, parking permits will only be issued to students who are:
- attending in-person instruction,
- scheduled to pick up their EdPass (college ID),
- scheduled to pick up equipment from our IT department, or
- living in Rainier Place or Triton Court.
If you will not be checking out equipment but will be attending classes in person, you will be issued a parking permit during the first week of classes after getting your temperature taken. Please remember to bring your EdPass (college ID) to class otherwise you will not be issued a parking permit.
Display the parking permit sticker in the driver's side front window, lower left corner.
Smart Alternatives to Circling the Lots
Twenty-nine carpool spaces in Lot L are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Apply for a permit at Security in Woodway Hall 214. Download carpool registration form.

Ride the Bus
To ride Community Transit's buses, you now need an ORCA card. You can add ORCA bus pass benefits to your EdPass (college I.D.). It costs $10 (a one-time fee for the new EdPass/ORCA card) and $26 for the quarterly bus pass.

In the case of facility rentals, fees may apply for parking lot use.
