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 either online at the customer portal or by stopping at any campus gatehouse and presenting their UW Retiree Husky Card to one of our parking specialists. The retiree card alone is not a parking permit. 

Parking permits are linked to your vehicle’s license plate number; this can be managed either through the online customer portal or at the gatehouse. If you have not used the customer portal before, please see our guide

Retirees with accessibility concerns may park in a disability parking space with 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 reemployed retirees.

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