General Information

Wisconsin Statutes define parking utilities on UW-System campuses as auxiliary enterprises.   As such, the parking programs are operated entirely with user fees and without support from tuition dolloars, student fees, the University budget or general tax revenue.   All operational, deferred maintenance and facility development expenses are paid entirely from permit sales, parking fine revenues and meter fees.

Parking permits are required on all vehicles parked on campus at all times, including winterim, spring and summer breaks, with the following exceptions:

  • 5 p.m. Fridays to 11:00 p.m. Sundays.
  • Announced public events at Warhawk Stadium/Williams Center.
  • Public events at Young Auditorium/Center for the Arts.

Permits are not required in Lots 1 and 2 after 7:00 p.m.

Vehicles arriving after Parking Services office hours may purchase a parking permit from the vending machine located in the Visitor Center service drive.   Meter fees are required except for University receognized holidays and on weekends, starting at 5 p.m. Friday through 11:00 p.m. on Sunday. 

Parking permits are not required when parked at meters; a parking permit does not cancel the requirement to pay meter fees.

If a Vehicle Becomes Disabled:  When a vehicle becomes stalled, stuck, or disabled on University property, contact the University Police immediately with the license number, vehicle information, and location.  If the vehicle is not obstructing traffic or is not creating a hazard in any way, you will be given three (3) hours to move the vehicle before it is subject to a citation or tow.  If the vehicle is parked at a parking meter, the meter must be paid until the vehicle is moved.

The University reserves the right to close University parking lots for maintenance, snow removal, special events, etc. when necessary.
