Part-time Campus Permits

UWM Transportation Services recognizes that some employees will need access to campus parking part-time. Employees can purchase a one-day pass, valid for either a future date or the day of purchase. Transportation Services is also working on a debit option that allows for on-demand entry to garages. Parking availability is subject to demand for each day. Transportation Services does not guarantee that a permit will be available for purchase on your desired day.

Customers can use Parkmobile to make reservations for specific days they need to be campus in advance for a flat daily rate. You can select from both outdoor lots and garages. Using Parkmobile Reservations guarantees you a parking space and allows you access to both Faculty/Staff and Lot Specific Reserved spaces (as designated by signage). Note: This does not grant access to handicap, visitor, UWM Department, and other specially-designated spaces.

You can also use your Transportation Services account to reserve a one-day pass or purchase on the day of your arrival. Only select lots are available. Permits purchased through this service guarantees parking, but only grants access to public, non-reserved spaces. Prices are fixed at $6 for each one-day permit through this service; pricing may vary from Parkmobile.

UWM uses virtual permits: your license plate is your permit. The only exception is if you are using Parkmobile in a gated garage (Lubar, Pavilion, NWQ, or Union); please see our Parkmobile page for instructions on entering and exiting the garages.
