2016-17 Student Parking Permits available starting April 12, 2016 - $154.00 
Permit will be mailed to your home address in mid-August for you to have when returning to campus in September.

Space for parking on campus is limited. All motorists who wish to park vehicles in campus lots must purchase a permit or pay at a meter or pay station. Parking is not free anywhere on campus. Permit serves as permission to park and does not guarantee a space. The university is not responsible for any damage to a vehicle operated or parked on campus. Parking is prohibited in yellow and white curb zones, fire zones, no parking areas, bus zones, crosswalks, driveways, sidewalks, near fire hydrants and/or dumpsters and other areas as designated.

Allocate enough time to find a space. If your assigned lot is full, visit Parking Services to obtain a temporary permit for another lot; valid permit holders will not be charged an extra fee. Do not park at a meter or pay station without paying. Possession of a permit is not a valid excuse to park in an unauthorized area.
 
Student permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, until the permit sales maximum is reached. (Permit sales priority for next academic year is offered to current students in April each year.) 2016-2017 annual parking permit $154.00, spring semester $92.00, and summer $39.00. Vehicle with a current UWSP student parking hangtag displayed from vehicle rearview mirror is valid in all student parking lots.

When visiting campus, please see the visitors' information page.

Parents and students - note that space for parking at UWSP is limited and restricted and there is a charge to park. Unless the student requires a vehicle for an off-campus job or other need, they may want to consider leaving the vehicle at home. The University assumes no responsibility for damage to a vehicle or its contents while parked on campus. Parking on the UWSP campus is by permit only except in metered areas with proper payment. The cost of a 2016 permit for the year is $154.00 (includes all applicable tax). There are 4 STUDENT parking lots on campus: J, P Q and W. 

Permit sales 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 mid-April for the following academic year. New students starting in September will attend Orientation, enroll register for classes and receive login information prior to applying for a permit. Spring term permits are available in early January.

Citations issued by that agency must be resolved with the city. University parking regulations (specifically loading zone rules) DO NOT apply on city streets.
