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 applicants’ class standing: graduate students and seniors receive permits first, then juniors, etc. The first class that doesn’t have enough permits available to cover every applicant will go into the lottery.
Application materials for resident parking permits will be sent in the mail during the beginning of July of each year and applications are accepted until July 31 of the applicable year. A subsequent lottery drawing will be held during the first week of August. Students not drawn in the lottery are placed automatically on a resident permit waiting list and will be notified of alternative off-campus parking options. Anyone wishing to apply for a permit who has not received the mailing by mid-July may contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-424-4455 to request the application.
Regular resident permits are available on a yearly basis only for $250.
Premium resident permits (second level only, covered parking) are available for $400 for the year.
Other resident permits (valid ONLY in assigned lot), available also on a seniority/lottery basis, are the following:
• Lot 6 (next to Student Rec and Wellness Center) - $200
• Lot 37 (near Horizon Village) - $200
• Lot 35 (next to Axle Tech) - $150
• Lot 39 (across the river) - $150
• Lot 40 (behind Axle Tech) - $100
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 from the Parking Services office.
Window decals must be placed on the outside of the rear driver’s side window. Any permit that it not properly displayed may result in a ticket. Affixing a decal by taping or clipping is not considered permanently or properly displayed.
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.
You can park your motorcycle or moped on campus with a valid Motorcycle/Moped permit displayed. Motorcycles/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. These spaces are not available between Nov. 15 and April 15.
Mopeds may be parked in approved bicycle racks for security purposes, but they still must properly display valid motorcycle parking permits. Mopeds may not be driven on sidewalks; walk mopeds to a bicycle rack. 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.
When you present an identifiable portion of the parking decal (needed for auditing purposes), Parking Services will refund a portion of the annual fee on a prorated basis, minus a $5 service charge.
Fees are subject to change.
