This policy defines the process for the Chancellor’s Office to provide parking options for governmental guests who need to park on campus to conduct official business.
UW Transportation Services will provide subsidized parking options for the Chancellor’s Office as needed to meet the needs of governmental guests. Options include:
All permits and validations will be assigned to the Chancellor’s Office.
The Chancellor’s Office distributes permits or validations to UW system, local, state, and federal officials whose business requires them to visit campus.
The Chancellor’s Office will determine the appropriate parking option based on the number of visits made to campus each year and the nature of the visits to campus.
The Chancellor’s Office will maintain and provide Transportation Services with a list of customers who receive the permits or validations. Each permit or value pass will be assigned to a specific individual who will be responsible for the permit or for others who share in the use of the permit.
Government permits are valid in permit or timed parking stalls on campus.
Guests who would like to purchase more permits than allocated by the Chancellor’s Office will be offered the opportunity to purchase additional parking on campus.
The permit must be hung from the vehicle’s rearview mirror or displayed in a plastic pouch on the inside lower left-hand corner of the windshield. Remove all items from the mirror or window that block view of the permit. The full permit must be visible when the vehicle is parked on campus.
Government permits or validations are subsidized by UW Transportation Services and cannot be used for any purpose (or by any other individual) other than official UW business as approved and issued by the Chancellor’s Office. Violation of this restriction will result in automatic loss of the permit/pass.
Permits are not valid in restricted areas, such as: fire lanes, reserved stalls, disabled stalls without a state DOT permit, disabled stall access aisles, loading zones, construction areas, sidewalks, driveways and grass areas. Unless otherwise noted, those parking with permits in restricted areas may be subject to citation or tow at the owner’s expense.
Transportation Services has the right to reserve lots/ramps for event parking on campus. Parking may be sold in advance or at the lot entrance on a first come basis. Permit holders may be relocated. Lots restricted for an event will be posted at the lot entrance and/or at UW Transportation Services.
Transportation Services has the authority to close a lot for construction, maintenance or safety issues.
Vehicles may not be stored (parked without moving) for more than 72 hours without permission from Transportation Services. Stored vehicles are subject to citation or tow at the owner’s expense.
Report lost/stolen permits or passes to Transportation Services immediately. Customers may be assessed a fee for replacing lost or stolen permits. Vehicles using altered or counterfeit permits are subject to ticket and tow.
