2022-23 parking applications now open

Parking applications are now open for the upcoming year (Sept. 1, 2022 – Aug. 31, 2023). You can review a list of parking permit options at the permit information page.

  • 2022-23 base lot (including reduced cost), Flex, UW Disabled, park and ride, and business alternate permits require an application. Apply by June 10 for early consideration; applications will also be accepted July 21-August 3 and later in August. Apply by August 16 to increase your chances of receiving a parking permit offer by September 1.
  • 2022-23 department limited, department service, and vendor permit applications open the week of May 23. The priority deadline is June 24.
  • 2022-23 employee bus passes, afternoon, night, moped, and motorcycle permits will be available to purchase starting August 1. There is no application process for these products. Purchases can be made online in the eBusiness purchasing portal and/or in person, depending on the product.
  • Semester permits valid between September 1 – December 31 will be available for in-person purchase for eligible customers starting August 16.

Transportation Services processes applications during the summer and approximately every two weeks during the academic year.

If you are applying for a base lot (including reduced cost), Flex, UW Disabled, park and ride, or business alternate permit, please apply by August 16 to maximize your chance of receiving a permit offer before September 1.

Parking offer assignment letters will be emailed late in the week of July 18 to those who submitted a 2022–23 parking application before June 10. Those who want to accept and purchase their offers must do so by August 2. The second 2022-23 parking application period is scheduled for July 21–August 3 and another round of parking offers will be emailed by August 8 with an acceptance due date of August 16. The third application period has a submission deadline of August 16.

Applying for a parking permit does not guarantee you will receive an offer. If you think you missed an offer email, you can check in the eBusiness purchasing portal (look for 2022-23 options matching your application) and then check with Transportation Services customer service. If you do not receive a parking offer email, you will be added to a waiting list and may receive an offer in the future.

How to apply

Employees who have previously held a base lot, Flex, UW Disabled, park and ride, or business alternate permit can now apply in the permit application system (PAS).

UW employees, UW Health employees, and some UW graduate and professional students may qualify for a 2022-23 reduced cost annual base lot permit. For more information on eligibility and how to apply for a 2022-23 reduced cost permit, please see the reduced and low-cost parking options page.

Undergraduate students must complete a pre-approval application to be considered eligible to apply for parking. For more information, see the student parking page. Undergraduate students are not eligible for the reduced cost parking program.

If you have never applied for parking before, you need to contact your Unit Transportation Coordinator (UTC) for approval to apply. Information in the “applying for parking” section of the permit types and information page and on the new employee page may be helpful to you.
