WIAA state tournament season is upon us again! The UW-Madison campus will host more than 125,000 visitors for:
- Individual Wrestling — February 21-23
- Boys Basketball — March 14-16
UW-Madison permit holders have helped make previous tournaments a success and we’re asking for your help again to make this year’s tournaments as accessible as possible for the athletes, parents, and spectators. (WIAA visitors and spectators should see the WIAA website for event-specific parking details.)
Lots 29, 46, 48, 78, 91, and 94 will be staffed 7:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. on the Thursdays, 6 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. on the Fridays, and 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. on the Saturdays of the tournaments.
Annual permit holders (base lot, Flex) in Lots 46, 78, 91, and 94 must relocate on the above tournament dates. Lots 29 and 83 will also be used for visitor parking, but permit holder relocation is not required. Alternate lots are provided for those who wish to avoid traffic congestion. All Flex users must use their assigned lot code when starting a session, even if they are parked in a different lot.

Traffic during WIAA tournaments can be heavy, especially during peak commuting times. This may be particularly true in areas of ongoing campus construction projects. If you are able, you may wish to explore alternate transportation methods during the tournament dates. Some options include carpooling, biking, or taking the bus! For those who park in an alternate lot on campus, the fare-free campus Route 80 bus can help get you where you need to go.
Questions about commuting options? Contact our Commuter Solutions team!
Affected permit holders will receive specific parking information via email by Thursday, Feb. 14 and a reminder before the March tournament dates.
Your assistance is appreciated! The WIAA tournaments bring significant benefits to the Madison area and create an important, memorable impact on these young athletes from across the state.
