Effective Sept. 1, 2012
The policies and regulations included throughout this website have been approved by the Chancellor. The policies and regulations also have been reviewed by the Parking Advisory Committee, which is comprised of faculty, staff and student representatives from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus.
Authority to establish regulations governing motor vehicle use on campus for visitors, faculty, academic staff, classified personnel and students is derived from Wisconsin Statutes. These rules are enacted pursuant to the authority granted the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System under Sections 36.11 (8)(a) and (b) and (8e) of state statutes and, in turn, granted to the Chancellor by the Board of Regents.
All Wisconsin motor vehicle laws are applicable to the same extent as though this campus and its streets are public highways.
Minor modifications in lot assignments and parking regulations to accommodate unforeseen circumstances or special events may be made during the year. Every effort will be made to provide ample notice of any such modifications to the University community.
Who Needs A University Parking Permit?
Every person who parks a motor vehicle on University property, including a motorcycle or moped, must have a valid University parking permit or pay at a parking meter or pay station. Parking permits are not a substitute for paying meter/street pay station fees.
• Permits are required year-round, including summer and during breaks.
• If your vehicle is unattended, it is parked.
• Using your car’s hazard lights does not excuse illegal parking.
Resident permits and regulations and parking ramp regulations are enforced 24 hours a day, from Monday at 6 a.m. until Friday at 4:30 p.m.
All other permit and meter regulations are enforced as follows:
Monday–Thursday: 6 a.m.–midnight*
Fridays: 6 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
* All commuter student and faculty/staff lots are closed midnight–6 a.m.
Violations for parking in commuter lots after midnight always are strictly enforced. During a snow emergency, vehicles parked in a commuter lot after midnight will be ticketed and towed to allow snow removal.
All other parking regulations are strictly enforced at all times.
The rear of the vehicle must be parked toward the access lane (do not back in or pull across to the other side).
UW Oshkosh and its employees and agents assume no liability for loss from theft or damage to cars parked on University property. Purchasers of parking permits agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the University, its officers, employees, and agents from any and all liability, including claims, demands, losses, costs, damages, and expenses of every kind and description (including death), or damages to persons or property arising out of, or in connection with, or occurring during use of the facility by the permit holder.
