Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the Kansas Judicial Center located?

The Kansas Judicial Branch is headquartered in the Kansas Judicial Center301 SW 10th Avenue in Topeka, Kansas. The Kansas Judicial Center houses the Kansas Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Kansas Law Library, Judicial Council, Clerk of the Appellate Court, Appellate Reporter and the Office of Judicial Administration. Visitor parking for the Judicial Center is located in lot 1 southeast of the employee entrance to the building. Visitors who have official business in the Judicial Center may park in any of the 22 reserved spaces (designated in green on the Parking Map). Visitors who park in that designated area must report their vehicle tag number to the Judicial Center security staff to avoid ticketing.

The four-hour visitor parking on the northwest side of the Judicial Center (designated on the Parking Map in blue) will remain. Those who are doing business for less than four hours in the Judicial Center should look for parking in this area first. Parking in this area for more than four hours may result in a parking ticket.
