 Are meter areas enforced 24-7?

 What if I bring a different car to campus?

​Your parking permit is a virtual permit that is linked to your vehicle.  If you will be bringing a different vehicle OR get new plates you must send an email to Parking.Services.Office@uwsp.edu to provide the alternate plate/vehicle information prior to bringing different vehicle.  The vehicle must be registered to you or a family member.

 I have several vehicles, do I have to purchase a separate permit for each?

​You can register multiple vehicles in your parking account (where you purchase your permit).  Once permit is purchased, any vehicles you add are not linked to your permit automatically.  You must email Parking.Services.Office@uwsp.edu to alert us to link the vehicle to your permit.  Several vehilcles can be linked to your permit, but only one vehicle can be on campus at a time.  All vehicles linked to permit must be registered to you or a family member.  

 I no longer need my permit, what can I do with it?

​Permits can be cancelled by sending an email to the Parking Services Office for a partial refund throughout the fall semester prior to the start of Sping semester. Refunds are not given during Spring semester or summer. Resale or transfer of your permit is prohibited and you will be responsible for any citations associated with permit.

 Where can I park when classes/exams are not in session?

​All UWSP parking lots are enforced year round and regulations are in effect. There are a few exceptions for Spring break and the days between Christmas and New Years.

 Can I park on the street?
