Construction parking permits are arranged by UW project managers and must be requested at least one month in advance. Construction permits are charged by the day.

To minimize disruption, we have established the following guidelines with respect to contractor and construction parking:

  • University parking permits are required for all vehicles parking on campus.
  • Contractors shall limit construction parking to approved area(s) shown on drawings or indicated in contract documents.
  • Contractors shall advise construction workers not to park in neighboring residential areas.
  • Contractors shall limit the number of vehicle trips to the construction site by encouraging carpooling.

Additional information for contractors:

  • Contractors will be charged a fee for laydown/staging areas inside campus parking lots or where designated parking spaces are impacted. Please contact for the current fee schedule.
  • Behind-the-fence permits are not intended for general contractor parking and are for use by site superintendents, project managers or supervisors, and for vehicles with equipment or supplies essential to the project.
