Signage displayed throughout parking lots and garages give instructions on who may park where, how to pay, and other information. It is the responsibility of customers to read and understand the signage. Failure to obey posted signage may result in citations and/or other penalties. The following is not a comprehensive list of all signs on campus.

Information Sign: Payment Information Sign

The sign above is displayed throughout campus emphasizing that there is no free parking on campus. Instructions such as these are available detailing how to pay for parking if you do not have a permit: using a machine contactless payment method. Not all spaces are available for public parking.

Gray Sign: Payment or Validation Required
Customers who are paying with Parkmobile, Passport, PayByPhone, or the pay station can park in designated spaces. Individuals who are having their parking validated by a department at UWM can park here as well.
Yellow Sign: Valid Permit, Validation, or Payment Required

The picture above demonstrates the new yellow signs marked “Valid Permit, Validation, or Payment Required”. These spaces are not reserved for a specific lot, and are first come/first serve. Parkers with a validation, and customers paying at pay stations or via a mobile payment option can use these spaces. UWM vehicles registered to Grounds and Facility Services can also use these spaces. Grounds and Facility Services can also park in non-parking spaces as long they are not blocking anything important, such as ADA\accessible areas, dumpsters, and walkways.

Black Sign: Reserved for Permit Holders Space Sign

The picture above depicts the black signs marked “Reserved”. Only permit holders with the specified permit (or All Access permit holders) may park in the spaces during the time frame listed. After the time indicated, anyone may park in these spaces as long as they have a Hunting permit or have paid using a pay station or Parkmobile.

Unmarked Spaces

Not every space has a sign. Please check adjacent spaces for signage.
