Step 1. Consider your parking needs and research your options.
- Assess your parking needs based on your work schedule.
- Choose your desired parking location. Refer to the campus map to find parking lots near your workplace on campus.
- Review the permit options available on the permit information page and rates page.
Step 2. Apply or purchase.
If applying for an annual base lot, Flex, park and ride, UW-Accessible, carpool, or business alternate permit, complete an application in the Permit Application System (PAS). You will need a valid NetID to access PAS.
If you encounter an error in PAS, contact your department’s Unit Transportation Coordinator.
Other permit types, including afternoon, night, motorcycle, moped, and Lot 76 Quick Passes do not require an application, and are available for direct purchase in the eBusiness purchasing portal.
Step 3. Wait for and pick up your permit.
If you purchased an afternoon, night, motorcycle, or moped permit or a Lot 76 Quick Pass, follow the instructions on your purchase receipt to obtain your hangtag.
If you applied for an annual base lot, Flex, park and ride, UW-Accessible, carpool, or business alternate permit, wait for a parking permit offer letter from email@example.com.
If you receive an offer letter, follow the instructions in the letter to purchase the permit in the eBusiness purchasing portal. After purchasing your permit, read your receipt carefully for instructions on how to obtain your hangtag.
If you haven’t received an offer by September 1, or applied after September 1, make alternate commuting arrangements while waiting for an offer. Parking space is limited and waiting lists can be quite long.
