Paying Fines

Failure to pay parking penalties will result in late fees. For tickets unpaid beyond 28 days, the past-due amount will be placed on the student’s account with an additional billing fee OR referred to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for suspension of vehicle registration.  Also, non-payment of fines may cause a HOLD to be placed on all student records, including grades and transcripts. Repeat offenders are subject to doubling of fine values.

Parking Services enforcement officers, University police officers or residence hall directors are authorized to have a vehicle towed away, if it is found to violate any posted tow-away zones, such as impeding traffic; blocking another vehicle; or parking on the lawn, mall or sidewalk.

If your vehicle is towed, contact the Parking Services office for the location of the impounding agent. The driver of a towed vehicle will be responsible for the towing and storage expenses. The University is not responsible for any damage incurred due to towing. Towed vehicles will be released when all outstanding tickets, towing charges and storage fees have been paid.

Repeat violations and/or nonpayment of parking citations may result in impounding the vehicle involved or removing it from state property at the owner’s expense.

Abandoned or impounded vehicles will be disposed after 60 days and notification of the owner, unless the owner contacts the Parking Services office and makes provisions to release the vehicle and pay all outstanding fines and expenses.

Payment for parking fines must be made to the Parking Services office (located in the lower level of Blackhawk Commons) in person, online, by phone with a credit card or mailed to

If mailing the payment, please be sure to include the ticket number, vehicle license plate number, or actual paper ticket.

Do not send cash through the mail. The Parking Services office will not be responsible for lost or stolen parking payments. There will be a $20 penalty assessed for non-sufficient fund checks.

All fees are subject to change.
