Your Plate is Your Permit

UWL uses license plates as permits. Hangtags and decals are no longer required so long as you've purchased a valid permit to park on campus.

Watch this video to see it how it works: 

Pay Stations Offer Hourly, Overnight Rates

Pay stations are located in seven commuter lots on campus. Customers use their license plates as their permits, and display of a receipt is not necessary. The pay stations 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.


Smartphone App Offers Easy, Hourly Parking Alternative

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 the numbered zones on campus. Visitors use their license plates to validate transactions. Instructions are located on the pay stations.
