Several University parking lots are available to visitors, students and the public. Some surface lots and sections of garages, during business hours, are permit only parking. Pre-payment of applicable parking fees is necessary across campus in the appropriately designated spaces. See campus parking map for exact locations. Adhere to posted signage at each lot
Parking lots and garages are controlled by pay stations, which are centralized multi-space meters. It is important to take notice of the signage located at the entrance of each lot. This includes lot number, time restrictions (if applicable), and payment instructions. Most pay stations require users to enter their license plate number and parking duration.

Students, Faculty and Staff are encouraged to review the Parking Rates page for the most affordable parking options on the UWM campus. To avoid issues with parking, it is recommended that permits are purchased in advance at uwm.edu/transportation/portallogin. UWM is a virtual permit campus now; no hangtag, no placard, and no sticker will be needed, only your license plate.
(Please note motorcycle and moped parking, disability parking, emeritus parking, and contractor parking are the only modes or parking which require physically coming to the UWM Transportation Services office in advance)
