Surface lot parking regulations relaxed on November 29

UW Transportation Services will be relaxing some campus parking restrictions on Friday, Nov. 29 to accommodate employees unable to travel easily to campus during Metro Transit’s modified service schedule.

Surface lots will be treated as if it is a UW legal holiday, meaning no UW permit is required to park. Parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis in permit parking stalls. If no parking stalls are available, vehicles must proceed to the next available location.

Restricted parking areas (such as access aisles, fire lanes, and no parking zones) are always enforced. State DOT Disabled permits and plates will be valid in UW Disabled stalls on November 29, but vehicles without a DOT or UW Disabled permit/plate will not be allowed and will be subject to citation and/or tow.

All gated parking lots (ramps and garages) will operate on a typical weekday schedule:

  • A valid UW permit for the gated lot can enter and exit per usual. Flex permits must be in paid status with ParkMobile if used in a garage or ramp.
  • Paid visitor car and truck parking available by pulling a ticket and paying upon exit. Visiting motorcycles parked in designated gated lot motorcycle areas must be in paid status with ParkMobile.

Regular parking enforcement resumes on Saturday, Nov. 30.
