The UW’s new parking system is launching in mid-December. Learn more about the changes.

Faculty and staff driving to campus may choose from a variety of parking products and payment options. The permits listed below can be purchased and renewed by contacting Transportation Services by email. Please register your vehicle with us online prior to contacting us.

Parking permits are assigned to specific lots or garages at time of purchase. Space is limited on the Seattle campus, so your preferred parking area may not be available. Parking in a lot different from the one on your permit may result in a citation.

Always display your commuter ticket or permit so that it is fully visible from the exterior of the vehicle with all the information easy to read. You may vertically hang your ticket or permit from your rearview mirror or display it on the driver’s side dashboard.

For short-term parking needs, see Visitor or Self-serve parking. For information on carpool and vanpool options, see Rideshare. If you’d like help considering your commuting options, see Plan my commute.
