Parking for our Parents at the Children’s Learning Center:

The Children’s Learning Center has 10 dedicated parking spaces located on the west side of Lot 35. (See uwm.edu/transportation/map) These spaces have a ‘Children’s Center’ parking meter directly in front of them. If you park in one of these spaces, you must have a Children’s Learning Center parking card hanging from your rearview mirror (visible to parking checkers) and you must push the button located on the front of the parking meter. This will give you 20 minutes maximum to drop off and/or pick up your child(ren). If a full 20 minutes is not necessary, please do not use the remainder of the time sitting in your car checking emails or texts – other parents are likely waiting for one of those spaces to drop off or pick up their child/ren. Also, please do not leave your car idling while you are inside the Center. Parents need to accept responsibility for tickets received while parked in any of these parking spaces. Parking cards are mailed to new families with their acceptance letter; additional card/s may be obtained from the receptionist.

In that same lot, there are 3 parking spaces (with no signage in front of the spaces) available to anyone pre-paying for parking at a pay station or by using ParkMobile.

There are 4 disabled parking spaces. Any person who has the state ID card, disabled plates, or disabled veteran plates does not need to display a UWM permit but they must pay the applicable fee.

There are also 9 spaces for UWM Police vehicles (UWM Police Department has temporarily relocated to the NWQ), and 4 for UWM Business vehicles. Only authorized vehicles may park in these spots.

The rest of the parking spaces in the lot (designated by the sign reading ‘PERMIT REQUIRED MON-FRI 5am-3pm’) are only for use by faculty and staff who have purchased a Regular annual Parking Permit. (Others MAY park in one of these spots after 3:00 p.m., if available, pre-paying for parking at a pay station or by using ParkMobile.)

Lot 35 & Lot 36 (See uwm.edu/transportation/map) are one-way; for the safety of all, please only drive counter-clockwise – SLOWLY – there is a lot of pedestrian traffic – mostly our families!

Public parking is also available in the NWQ parking garage (Lot 33) (see uwm.edu/transportation/map) excluding spaces with signs reading ‘RESERVED SPACE – NWQ RESERVED – PERMIT REQUIRED.’ All parking garages on campus use the same methods for payment (see uwm.edu/transportation/rates). From Level 1 of this garage (elevator & stairs are in the southeast corner), use the skywalk to walk directly into the Northwest Quadrant.

The circle driveway is a ‘No Parking’ zone. Please do not park in the circle driveway. There is also NO parking in the ‘Authorized UWM Vehicles Only’ lot off of Hartford Avenue. Transportation Services may ticket you if your car is in one of these locations.

Parking is enforced by UWM Transportation Services (414-229-4000) located in NWQB, Room 1427 (right around the corner from the Children’s Learning Center). Parents need to accept responsibility for tickets received while parked in any campus parking spots.
