Validation Request Form

Jump to validation request form

UW departments can request parking validations to provide to guests. Validations cover costs of hourly visitor parking in UW campus garages. Hourly visitor parking is first-come, first-served.

Validations can be used in any UW campus garage where hourly visitor parking is available, except if the garage is already reserved for special event parking.

Half-day and full-day parking validations are available.

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.

How to Request Validations

Complete the form below to request validations. Allow two weeks for processing.

UW departments must provide a Transportation Services cost center number (TS#) with the validation request.

In-Person Pick-up

Validations orders must be picked up at a Transportation Services office. Use the request form to specify the location where you will pick up the validations.

Validation Costs

There is no up-front cost to request validations.

Departments are charged after guests use the validations to park. The purchasing department will be charged the actual hourly parking cost.

  • Half-day validations cover up to four hours of visitor parking.
  • Full-day validations cover up to the daily visitor maximum.
