Parking on the UW-Stevens Point campus is by permit only except in metered areas with proper payment. Space for parking is limited and restricted and there is a charge to purchase a permit. A parking permit serves as permission to park and does not guarantee a parking space. The University assumes no responsibility for damage to a vehicle or its contents while parked on campus. No parking allowed in fire zones or parking lanes. Motorcycles only in cycle stalls April 1st - Nov 1st.
 
Student parking is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. All student parking lots are located on the perimeter of campus and are not close to classes or residence halls. 2014-2015 permits cost $118.00

What if I bring a different car to campus?

Your parking permit is a hangtag that can be moved to another vehicle.

Are there rules & regulations I need to follow?
Parking rules and regulations exist to maximize campus parking facilities, to help avoid congestion and to maintain safe driving conditions.

Are daily or weekly parking permits available?
Parking Services sells $5.00 daily and $20.00 weekly permits when space is available.

What if I have a guest for the weekend?
The student parking lots are open on the weekends. Your guest can park in Lot Q starting at 7pm on Friday through 6am on Monday for free.
 
I only need a parking permit for 1 semester?
Yearly permits can be returned at the end of 1st semester for a 40% refund. Return your permit at the end of the 1st semester or at least by the first day of the second semester and we'll process a $47.00 refund via the same method used to purchase the permit.

If I have an injury can I get a temporary handicap permit to park closer?

Parking Services staff is not medically qualified to determine handicap permit eligibility. Please check with the WI Department of Motor Vehicle website for application info: http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/drivers/forms/mv2933.pdf 

If I do not plug the meter will I receive a citation?
Meter parking is conveniently located throughout campus to accommodate close proximity parking needs. The hourly rate of $.50 is a better value than a $8.00 citation issued to drivers of vehicles parked at expired meters. NOTE: a vehicle can be ticketed every two hours at an expired meter.

Can I park on the Stevens Point city streets?
Overnight parking is not allowed on the Stevens Point city streets.

The cost of a permit for an entire year is $118.00 (includes all applicable tax). There are 5 student parking lots on campus.

Assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis. If you decide to bring a vehicle to campus and purchase a permit you are responsible to comply with the UWSP posted PARKING RULES & REGULATIONS. Following the rules and reading the posted street signs will make for a positive parking experience.

Permit applications for enrolled students are accepted in early May for the following school year. New students starting in September will attend Orientation, enroll in classes and receive login information prior to applying for a permit. Spring term permits are available in early January.

No overnight parking allowed on the Stevens Point City streets. City streets that are within the boundaries of the University are under the jurisdiction of the Stevens Point Police Department. Citations issued by that agency must be resolved with the city. University parking regulations (specifically loading zone rules) DO NOT apply on city streets.

Visitors must be registered with the Parking Services office. If you have a friend or family member visiting, be sure to bring them to Parking Services office for a permit (if space is available).
