Motorcycle Visitor Parking

Timed Parking and Mobile Payment

Motorcycle visitor parking requires payment during posted times. All motorcycle visitor parking options on campus make use of timed parking stalls, with payment through a third party vendor called Parkmobile. Payment at these locations is accepted via phone, website, or smartphone app.

Before parking for the first time, you must create an account with Parkmobile. Follow the directions here.

For step-by-step instructions on using Parkmobile, follow the directions here.

Motorcycles must be in paid status during times lots are controlled. The mobile payment provider will not charge for parking during times the lots are not controlled. Lot control times are listed on the lot entrance signs or you may go to the lot location and hours page for additional information.

Gated Facilities

The entry and exit gates are actuated via loop metal detectors in the pavement, spaced to detect full size vehicles. Motorcycles do not contain enough metal to reliably actuate the gate equipment. It is unsafe to drive a motorcycle through the gate equiment. Gate arms can and do descend on a rider, causing injury and property damage. Motorcycles are only allowed in select gated facilities where a designated motorcycle lane is present.

Where there is no designated lane, do not attempt to enter the facility on a motorcycle. Where there is a motorcycle drive lane, drive around the gate via the designated method.

Gated Facility Motorcycle Access
Lot 6 Helen C. White Garage Upper level only—no motorcycle access lane in lower level
Lot 17 Engineering Drive Ramp Motorcycle access lanes at both east and north entrances
Lot 29 North Park Street Ramp Motorcycle access lane at East Campus Mall entrance. (Park Street entrance has motorcycle parking located before the gates.)
Lot 46 Lake & Johnson Ramp Motorcycle access lane at Frances Street entrance only
Lot 76 University Bay Drive Ramp Motorcycle access lanes at both entrances
Lot 83 Fluno Center Garage Motorcycle parking located before the gate. (No access lane through gate.)

Inside the facility, visiting motorcycles (those without a UW permit) are required to be in pay status and parked only in designated motorcycle stalls. Parking in a non-motorcycle stall or failing to pay may result in a citation.

Designated Motorcycle Surface Lots

Each lot has hours of control on the lot entrance signs. During hours of control, visiting motorcycles (those without a UW permit) may only park in designated timed parking stalls. Outside the posted hours of control, visiting motorcycles may park in any vehicle or motorcycle stall. Parking without a permit during hours of control or failure to pay during hours of control may result in a citation.
