Permits Available for Pick Up, Spaces are Still Available for Residents and Commuters

Parking permits are still available in certain resident and commuter lots. Students who have not already purchased a permit should do so online as soon as possible. If a lot is not listed, it is sold out. Select Purchase a Permit/Annual, Semesterly from the options on the left and sign into the site with a valid NetID. 

Students who have purchased a permit may visit the office during business hours to retrieve it. Permits are not distributed on weekends. Students who return to campus on a weekend should visit the office immediately on Mondays through September 5 to retrieve their permits. Citations will not be voided for students who do not pick up permits in a timely manner. 

New Pay Stations Set to Debut on Campus, Pay-by-Phone Available

New pay stations will be installed in seven commuter lots on campus over fall semester. Be on the lookout for the new, gray pay stations with color displays. Customers will use their license plates as their permits, and display of a receipt is not necessary. The pay stations will offer an option to enter a cell phone number to receive an alert when time is about to expire. Customers can reply, via text message, to purchase additional time. The pay stations default to a $5 overnight rate from 7 p.m.-2 a.m. and charge $1 per hour between 2 a.m.-7 p.m.

Pay-by-phone is available at any UWL pay station. Visitors can download the Passport Parking app to their smartphones or visit the website to create an account. Visitors can then add time remotely by selecting one of two zones on campus. Zone 350 is for external campus lots with pay stations, and Zone 351 is for the parking ramp. Visitors use their license plates to validate transactions.

Instructions are located on the pay stations.
