UW retirees

Changes are coming to UW parking in Spring Quarter 2020. For UW retirees, that will mean a new option to go online to arrange your complimentary parking, instead of having to stop at the gatehouse each time. More details will be available later in Winter Quarter.

Complimentary parking is available to fully retired UW retirees and their spouses at the UW Seattle campus (one permit per couple). This privilege is not transferable to others, including other relatives. Surviving spouses retain parking privileges, but need to obtain a Husky Card.

Retirees may obtain a daily parking permit by presenting their UW Retiree Husky Card to one of our parking specialists at any campus gatehouse. Retirees are required to stop at a gatehouse and obtain a permit each time they park on campus; the retiree card alone is not a parking permit.

Retirees with accessibility concerns may request disability parking near their destination when obtaining their daily permit. If you have a state-issued disability permit, please present it at the gatehouse along with your Husky Card.

If you have returned to work at the UW since retiring, please read the section below on parking for re-employed retirees.

For more details on retiree parking, please see our FAQ. The retiree parking policy can be read at the UWRA site.
