Parking Regulations

Regulations by Parking Lot:

Permits for Online Students Only

If you're enrolled in online only classes OR transition to online only classes this affect you! Our virtual permit parking system works by assigning a parking fee to all IN-PERSON students, with the ability to "opt-out" through your SIS portal if you don't need a parking permit. If you are online only, YOU ARE NOT assessed this fee as the system does not anticipate your physical presence on campus. You must purchase a parking permit directly at Student Billing Resources (920) 465-2224.  IF YOU MOVE TO ONLINE ONLY CLASSES AT ANY TIME, YOU MUST CONTACT STUDENT BILLING RESOURCE OFFICE TO PURCHASE A PERMIT.

When you transition from in-person to online only, the system anticipates you will no longer physically be present on campus and removes the parking permit fee, which removes your virtual parking permit and privileges. You must purchase a parking permit directly at the Student Billing Resources Office (920) 465-2224,

General Parking Information

The State of Wisconsin provides no state tax money to the campus to construct or maintain parking lots and by law ( Wis. Stats. 36.11(8) ) a parking fee must be levied to generate operating and construction funds for parking lots. In addition to the over 34 acres of parking with 4,492 parking stalls available for use on campus, UW-Green Bay maintains all roadways traversing University lands. Unlike many other 4 year UW schools where the municipality they are in own the roads, UW-Green Bay owns it's roadways and infastructure. 

UW-Green Bay has a Virtual Parking Permit system in which no physical permit is displayed. Through the use of Automated License Plates Reader(ALPR), we identify if a vehicle has a virtual permit assigned or has paid for a parking session. This innovative system allows for user to have more control over their parking, and makes parking enforcement much simpler. (More Details below)

Parking at the Additional Campus Locations

There is no fee to park at the UW-Green Bay campuses in Manitowoc, Sheboygan or Marinette.

Virtual Parking Permit System:

Virtual permit holders users MUST provide their correct license plate information either entering it in their SIS account or faculty/staff portal before they use parking services. The few individuals who don't have access to one of those accounts should contact the Student Billing Resources Office for manual entry. As a convenience, the parking permit cost is built into each semester student fees and is automatically charged to in-person students at the start of each semester. 

If you are online only, or transition to online only classes, this fee is not applied and you will not automatically get a parking permit. 

Student who do not use parking services may "opt-out" of this fee at the start of the semester.  Faculty, Staff, and all others who are on campus may purchase permits through the Student Billing Resources office at any time. Only Full time Faculty and Staff have the option to enroll in payroll deduction in the fall of every year, which deducts this fee from your payroll through out the 9 month academic year.
