Parking Permit

Students participating in the Early Fall Start program or who are in an academic program that starts more than 12 days before autumn quarter start may purchase an Early Start parking permit.

The rate for a student parking permit is $602 starting August 20 and is prorated if purchased after that date. Parking permits are valid through the end of autumn quarter, December 17, 2020.

To purchase a parking permit, follow these steps:

  1. Starting August 20, log into the Transportation Services online customer portal with your UW NetID.
  2. Click “Get Permits”.
  3. Select the academic quarter-based parking permit you would like to purchase (ex. SOV / Fall Quarter). Products are listed alphabetically. If you do not see the academic quarter-based permit you would like to purchase, this may mean you are not in the student database. You will need to have that resolved in order to purchase a student parking permit.
  4. Continue through the purchasing process to finalize the purchase of your parking permit. 

For further questions regarding parking permits, please contact Transportation Services at or 206-221-3701 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Thursday. The Sales office is open by appointment only and closed to general walk-in traffic.
