Resident Student Permits
Parking permits for students living in residence halls are limited and sold on a seniority/lottery basis. Resident permits are assigned on the basis of the applicant's class standing: graduate students and seniors receive permits first, then juniors, etc. The first class where there are not enough permits available to cover every applicant from that class shall be placed in the lottery and only that class will go into the lottery.
Application materials for resident parking permits are mailed and/or email during the beginning of July of each year. Applications are must be received in our office by July 31, with a subsequent lottery drawing held during the beginning of August. Students not drawn in the lottery will be notified of alternative off-campus parking options and may contact Parking Services to request being placed on waiting list(s). Anyone wishing to apply for a permit who has not received the application by mid-July may contact our office at email@example.com or 920-424-4455 to request the application.
Premium Resident permits (second level only, covered parking) are available for $400 for the year.
Regular Resident permits are available on a yearly basis only for $250. These permits are valid in Lots 5a, 18, 23, 30 and the third level of High Avenue parking ramp (uncovered section).
Other resident permits (valid ONLY in assigned lot), available also on a seniority/lottery basis, are the following:
• Lot 37 (near Horizon Village) - $250
• Lot 35 (next to Axle Tech) - $175
• Lot 39 (across the river) - $150
• Lot 40 (behind Axle Tech) - $125
Permits are never to be transferred or sold to another person but may be transferred to another vehicle with prior permission of Parking Services.
Please refer to the map for resident lot locations.
Anyone who brings a car other than the one for which a regular permit has been issued must obtain a temporary parking permit for the day(s) needed from the Parking Services office.
Window decals must be placed on the outside of the driver’s side window (see picture below). Affixing a decal by taping or clipping is not considered permanently or properly displayed and may result in a ticket.
Parking permits are never to be transferred or sold to another person. If an individual purchases a different vehicle, he/she must bring the old permit, or identifiable portion thereof, to the Parking Services office for replacement at no cost. Those requesting a replacement permit without returning the old permit will be charged $40.
Motorcycle/moped permits cost $15 per year or $8 per semester. Motorcycles and mopeds must be parked only in designated areas, not in regular car stalls. With a valid permit, motorcycle parking areas are available for resident students in lots 18, 23, South Gruenhagen area and the High Avenue parking ramp. Other motorcycle spaces on campus are only available April 15 through Nov. 15.
Mopeds may be parked in approved bicycle racks, but they still must properly display valid university motorcycle parking permits. Do not operate mopeds on sidewalks. Driving on a sidewalk is in violation of Wisconsin State Statute 346.94, and such a violation would result in a fine and points against your driver’s license.
Please see the parking map for lot locations.
A prorated refund may be issued for the return of an identifiable portion of the parking decal.
Fees are subject to change.
