Fall 2020 Parking and Transit

On this page:

Parking

Until Dec. 31, 2020, most parking rates will be discounted and prorated to the purchase date. Check your Transportation Services account for the most up-to-date rate.

All UWM parking garages and lots will be open, and annual, semester and monthly permits will be available for purchase online in June. There is no need for physical permits as the license plate numbers are considered parking permits. On-site touchless payment options and mobile apps should be available for daily parking in the fall, including Parkmobile and Flowbird. All parking machines will be cleaned frequently with alcohol-based disinfectants.

In recognition that more employees will be parking on campus on a part-time basis, discounted rates and options for part-time parkers are currently available.

The Transportation Services office at the Student Union will remain closed until all customer service safety protocols have been implemented. The Transportation Services website will provide opening details when available. In the meantime, all permits can be purchased online. Please email Transportation Services at uwmpark@uwm.edu if you need assistance.

Please note: Customers who cancel their parking permits before the start of the permit will receive a full refund minus a $10 processing fee. Customers who cancel their permit after their permit has started will receive a prorated refund.
