General Policies and Information for Additional Campus Amenities
Below is general information on additional amenities, services, and activities that you may wish to use. See the links at the bottom for more information about different amenities and services that Kent State University offers.
Parking rates for people being housed on campus are $2.00 per day/$9.00 per week/$15.00 per month/$40.00 entire summer. Let your conference coordinator know how many parking permits you will need so they can be prepared and ready upon your arrival. Special arrangements can be made should you need to distribute parking permits prior to your arrival and check in. We do not recommend distribution prior to arrival because participants have a tendency to “forget/lose” them and you are charged for the total number received and not returned. Rates for the KSC visitor lot vary. Please contract your coordinator should parking be needed in this location.
Student Recreation & Wellness Center
If your schedule provides “free time” for your participants and you are interested in utilizing Kent’s Student Recreation & Wellness Center, please let your conference coordinator know. For liability reasons, Kent’s Recreation and Wellness Center can no longer permit individuals/groups to utilize their facility on a “walk in” basis. Recreation Passes must be ordered two weeks in advance. Cost per pass is $5.00 per person/per day, $25.00 per week or $92.00 per person for students from other colleges/universities for a summer membership. Special event pricing is available - ask your coordinator for details.
In addition to the Student Recreation & Wellness Center, Kent State University’s Ice Arena and Eastway Recreation center will be available in the evening for private parties upon request. For those of you with an interest in fashion, the KSU Fashion Museum is just a short walk from anywhere on campus. Please do not hesitate to get pricing information from your coordinator if you are interested in utilizing any of these facilities while you are here.
