Parking Information - Faculty/Staff

Parking on the UWSP campus is by permit only except in metered areas with proper payment. Space for parking is limited and restricted and there is a charge to purchase a permit. A parking permit serves as permission to park and does not guarantee a parking space. The university is not responsible for damage to a vehicle or its contents while parked on campus. Parking is not allowed in restricted or reserved areas. Motorcycle parking only in cycle stalls April 1st - Nov 1st.

Obtaining a parking permit on campus is a two-step process for Faculty/Staff; WAITLIST sign-up and PERMIT PURCHASE. Lot assignments of parking spaces are based on continuous seniority-of-service at UWSP and require a waitlist signup by August 1st each year. Faculty/staff can select two waitlist options; first choice lot & second choice lot. The PERMIT PURCHASE step begins in early August after the seniority WAITLIST lot assignment is completed. Your waitlist lot assignment reservation will be held for a two-week period for you to purchase your permit. If you have not purchased a permit in that timeframe, the reservation will be released to the next senior person on the list. Second semester parking permit sales begin in early January.
