UW-Green Bay

Parking Regulations

                                         
UW Green Bay has Virtual Parking Permits. The virtual permit is identified by the vehicle license plate number.

In person Students, staff and faculty use an online process to purchase permits and provide vehicle information.  The vehicle license plate serves as the permit. For in person students the virtual permit fee is added to the SIS account at the time the upcoming term fees are applied. In person Students who do not use the parking services can easily “opt out” though an option on their SIS account which removes the permit fee.

University Personnel use an online process to pay for yearly permits through payroll deduction. Employees choosing not to use payroll deduction or who choose to purchase term permits can do so at the Bursar’s office.

Ad Hoc, Associate Lecturer, LTE's and those who work on campus but not employed by UW-Green Bay must go to the bursars office to purchase their permit.

ON LINE STUDENTS are NOT automatically charged permit fees.  If you  come to campus to utilize resources, meet in person with instructors, or for any other reasons surpass the 5 visit limit you must purchase a parking permit at the bursar’s office. This includes students who are new enrollments or students transitioning from in-person classes to on-line only.

BELLIN College of Nursing, are NOT automatically charged permit fees.  Due to enrollment status and school affiliation, we are unable automatically assign parking permit fees. If you surpass the 5 visit limit for parking services you must purchase a parking permit at the bursar’s office.

INTERNS or other non-students are NOT automatically charged permit fees.  Due to enrollment status and school affiliation, we are unable automatically assign parking permit fees. If you surpass the 5 visit limit for parking services you must purchase a parking permit at the bursar’s office.

 

Students and University personnel are responsible to accurately enter their vehicle license plate information into the virtual permit system. Students enter license plate information in SIS. Adding plates to a permit is easily done online at any time.  In most cases, those who occasionally bring a vehicle to campus can park up to five times per semester without purchasing a permit. However those who come to visit in Residence Life / Student Housing must be registered each and every time they visit. All overnight visitors in Residence Life must park in the Studio Arts Parking Lot.
 

GENERAL PARKING INFORMATION

The State of Wisconsin provides no state tax money to the campus to construct or maintain parking facilities, therefore, a parking fee is levied to generate operating and construction funds. Authorization for campus regulations comes from the Wisconsin Statutes. All other provisions of Chapter 346 of the Wisconsin Statutes relating to vehicular travel upon highways open to public use also apply to roadways on University grounds.

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is one of the most accessible Universities in the University of Wisconsin System. While maintaining a vibrant arboretum and natural landscaping, the University has made both residential and academic buildings readily accessible to visitors, students, and staff by providing over 4,492 parking stalls within our major parking lots. During business hours, with a basic virtual parking permit(no special authorizations attached) you have access to almost all of them. We do not assign permit holders to a specific lot like many other universities. At UW- Green Bay if you have a permit, you have a permit.

RESTRICTED LOTS ARE the University Union Visitor Lot(off of Campus Ct) and the Kress Events Center Visitor Lot(off of Leon Bond Dr). Even in these two restricted parking lots, we have allowed for temporary student/faculty/staff access by making 17 of the stalls 15 min zones, which ARE available for permit holder use. The unmarked parking stalls in these two lots are intended for true visitors of the campus such as those seeking admission, taking a tour, or engaged in various other activities.

This means during normal business hours your virtual parking permit is valid in over 98% of parking stalls.
 

 

Times of Enforcement

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has several businesses located throughout its property in addition to hosting academic classes, conferences, and special functions or events. These businesses and events operate year round and accordingly enforcement occurs all year long to allow them to operate. Simply put, there are no times when enforcement is suspend based strictly on the academic calender as the University operates year round.
