Campus operations are gradually increasing as part of the Smart Restart plan. Transportation Services operational response can be found in the Transportation Services Smart Restart Hub. See smartrestart.wisc.edu for full UW-Madison COVID-19 response information.
Parking applications are required for annual permits–base lot, Flex, business alternate, park and ride, and UW Disabled permits.
The regular parking year offer schedule is approximately every other Wednesday. The next offer dates are September 16 and 30.
If you already submitted a parking application and have not received an offer, you do not need to reapply unless you are changing your lot choices. You were likely placed on a waitlist, where you will remain until an offer can be made to you. You can check with us to confirm.
2020-21 employee bus passes and afternoon, night, motorcycle, and moped permits are available for purchase in the eBusiness purchasing portal as of August 1, 2020.
Students, you have a special permit process. Visit the student parking page for information.
Lots with 2020-21 permit availability
8/10/20 Update: Permit availability information is temporarily unavailable until further notice. Significant changes in parking demand, permit acceptance rates, and other factors have made sharing current availability difficult, as the information is fluid. Apply for the permit types and lot locations you’d like – you may apply for up to four total choices.
We are anticipating significant changes in availability to continue as employees make decisions about their commuting plans. Permit allotments may be adjusted–as we are able–to match demand and space availability, and not all individuals will purchase the permit offer made to them during a given offer period.
