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

The parking changes originally planned for Spring Quarter 2020 have been rescheduled for December 2020. Learn more about how UW retiree parking will be affected.

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. A state or UW-issued disability placard must be displayed to use disability parking spaces in campus lots. More information is available on the accessible parking page.

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.
