Parking Your Car to Drop Off & Pick Up Your Child(ren)

Our parking lot is a very active place, with many cars coming and going. It is imperative that your child/ren remain by your side, or hold your hand, while you walk through the parking lot (and the Center).

The Children’s Learning Center has 10 dedicated parking spaces located on the west side of Lot 35 (Day Care Lot), the large lot closest to the NorthWest Quadrant (NWQ) parking garage. These spaces have a Children’s Learning 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 hang tag 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. Parking hang tags are mailed to new families with their acceptance letters; additional hang tags are available from the Children’s Learning Center receptionist.

In that same lot, there are four disabled parking spaces; you must have a disabled permit/plate/ hang tag to park in one of these spots and pre-pay for parking at a pay station or by using the ParkMobile, Passport Parking or PayByPhone app. There are nine parking spaces reserved for UWM Campus Police, who are headquartered in the NWQ, and four spaces reserved for vehicles authorized by UWM Transportation Service.

The parking spaces with black signs reading ‘PERMIT REQUIRED MON-FRI 5am-3pm’ are only for use by faculty and staff who have purchased a ‘Commuter Lots 34, 35, 36 Honors/Day Care’ 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 the ParkMobile, Passport Parking or PayByPhone app.)

The parking spaces with gray signs reading ‘PAYMENT OR VALIDATION REQUIRED’ are available for use by anyone pre-paying for parking at a pay station or by using the ParkMobile, Passport Parking or PayByPhone app.)

Lot 35 and the adjacent Lot 36 (Honors Lot) 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) excluding spaces with signs stating ‘RESERVED SPACE – NWQ RESERVED – PERMIT REQUIRED.’ Public parking is paid for using the ParkMobile, Passport Parking or PayByPhone app, or by pulling a ticket on entrance and paying before exit.

The circle driveway is a ‘No Parking’ zone. The small parking lot near the dumpster on Hartford Ave. is also a ‘No Parking’ zone. This area is reserved for UWM Facilities vehicles and UWM police vehicles. UWM Transportation Services patrols these areas and will ticket your vehicle if it is parked there, even if for only a few minutes.

Parking is enforced by UWM Transportation Services office (414-229-4000) located on the first floor of the Student Union, Room WG25, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd. Parents need to accept responsibility for tickets received while parked in any campus parking spots, including the Center’s 10 dedicated parking spaces.
