I have several different vehicles, do I have to purchase separate permits for each one?
You can transfer your HANGTAG to an alternate vehicle that is registered to you or your family. (Your parking hangtag is not transferrable and you are liable for any citations or violations issued to vehicles displaying your permit.)My assigned parking lot is full, what should I do?
If your assigned lot is full, you can park in another permit lot (faculty-staff in faculty-staff lots & students in student lots)
with license plate notification to Parking Services office to prevent a citation from being issued. EXCEPTION: Lot T and V staff permit holders can park in metered section of Lot T and V with license plate call-in notification. NOTE: Your parking permit serves as permission to park & does not guarantee a parking spot. Lots are first-come, first-served. When can I apply for parking?
The purchase process for student
parking permits for the following academic year starts in early May for enrolled students. (Watch MOD for exact date.)
Student permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. New students will attend Orientation in the summer; after registering for courses and receiving log in credentials you can purchase a parking permit if space is available. When lots are full, a waiting list is created and assignments made from this list as space becomes available. Faculty/staff
Waitlist signup starts in May and ends Aug. 1st. Lot assignments are made on all Waitlist requests received by Aug. 1st and based on seniority-of-service at UWSP. After lot assignments are processed in early Aug. you will be notified of your lot assignment and can choose to purchase a permit for that lot. Your reservation will be passed on to the next senior person on the list if you decide not to purchase a permit.I'm enrolled at UWSP for fall semester only, do I have to pay the full permit price?
Academic year permits are available for fall semester, and may be returned at the end of fall term for a 40% refund of purchase price processed to the same method of payment to purchase permit. NOTE: Payroll deduction method of payment for permit can not be refunded. I received a permit but no longer need it, what can I do?
The unused permit can be returned to the Parking Services Offices before the start of classes for a full refund. Permits can also be returned for a partial refund after the start of courses. Students not attending UWSP the second semester can return their yearly permit prior to the start of the second semester and receive a 40% refund. Resale or transfer of your permit is prohibited. (Permit purchaser is responsible for any citations/issues associated with permit.)Can I park in permit areas at night or on the weekend?
Permit areas are restricted to permit holders from 2am-7pm, Monday-Friday, except lot H, which is restricted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Permit areas are open from 7pm-2am Monday-Friday and on weekends. Do I need to purchase a permit for my moped or motorcyle? Mopeds
can park by the bike racks on campus without contacting Parking Services. Mopeds need to have a moped license plate. Motorcycles
with a motorcycle plate are required to have a UWSP motorcycle permit to park in the student or faculty designated motocycle stalls on campus. Student motorcycle stalls are located in Lots P, Q, T and W. Faculty motorcycle stalls are available in Lots A, D, E, H, R, T and V. Motorcycle stalls are open Apr 1st until Nov. 1st.

Vehicles do not need to have a permit in Lot Q for the first 5 days of fall and spring terms
