Parking Permit Sales for 2019-20 Academic Year

Student parking permits go on sale in July. Ordering instructions will be sent through campus email. Permit sales open based on earned credit hours:

  • July 8: 60 hours or more earned (Junior, Senior, Graduate Studies)
  • July 15: 30 hours or more earned (Sophomore and above)
  • July 23: Less than 30 hours earned

Graduate students employed by the university are not authorized to purchase permits when employee sales begin. The wait list will not open until permits sell out.

Summer permits are available for sale at $25 per session or $65 for all three sessions. Annual permits and spring semester permits are valid through August 31.

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.
