Parking Rates & Locations

Convenient and ample parking for the conference center is available in the attached Shops of Grand Avenue parking structure. The structure is easily entered from Plankinton Avenue between Wisconsin Avenue and Michigan Street.

The Conference Center provides all guests a parking discount for those who park in the Grand Avenue structure. Please bring your parking gate ticket to the 7th floor reception desk to have it validated. The validation entitles you to the special UWM rate of $6/day, regardless of day of the week, time of day or length of stay (except overnight parking).

In addition, meeting organizers have the option to pay for half or all of the parking costs so that guests may pay $3 or nothing when they leave. Arrangements for covering guest parking should be made with the Conference Services Office.

PLEASE NOTE: Overnight parking in the Shops of Grand Avenue structure is not covered by the School of Continuing Education validation and will result in additional cost.

Additional options: Downtown Milwaukee has over 42,000 off-street and on-street parking spaces available. Visit ParkMilwaukee.com to find the rates and locations that work best for you.*
