Visitor Parking Permits

After a recent evaluation of funding and the costs associated with parking lot maintenance and future planning, we will no longer be providing free parking permits beyond our five (5) free visits per semester.

We understand this change to our business practice is going to prompt challenges and campus wide some reevaluation and decisions by individuals, as well as departments in general, will need to be made moving forward. Our past practice is simply not sustainable and we must move to a system that more accurately represents the "true cost" of operation. Not only for parking, but also of individual campus departments who have received free parking permits. The issuance of free permits not only obscured some of these departmental operational costs, but also puts Parking at a disadvantage due to the increased wear and tear on the lots with no cost recovery.

Individuals   (NOT Emeritus)

Any person who has a vehicle on campus in excess of 5 times per semester, which is inclusive of most full time faculty, staff, and students, has likely purchased a permit. If you are not a member of these groups and consider yourself a volunteer or someone working in a capacity which otherwise benefits a University department you have two options. The first is you may purchase parking in the Studio Arts lot using the ParkMobile App or a campus wide semester or yearly parking permit at the Bursar’s office for yourself. The second is you may make a request of the department that you’re benefiting that they purchase a parking permit on your behalf. Both purchases are made at the Bursar’s office and the correct entry of the vehicles license plate is required.

Emeritus
Any person who has received the honor of Emeritus status by the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will be provided a free general access parking pass as part of their benefits. The permit shall be valid for one academic year and it's the responsibility of the Emeritus to request a parking permit each year. The Emeritus designation is a distinguishing title and is not granted to all retired professional faculty; requiring nomination by a member of the University community and subsequent approval and designation by Chancellor. 

Departments

If you wish to provide parking to individuals who provide services to your department, you have the option to purchase parking on someone’s behalf. You may also use the ParkMobile App to purchase parking within the Studio Arts lot or if longer term parking is required a Semester or yearly permit. Please use appropriate funding codes assigned to your department to do so, and make the purchase by contacting the Bursar’s office.

PLEASE NOTE:
There are no restrictions on the number of license plates you may assign to a semester or yearly virtual permit, but only one (1) vehicle may use the virtual permit at any particular time. By coordinating use, your department may only need to purchase one permit to accommodate several vehicles. For example, if Health and Counseling has a physician visit only on Mon, Wed, and Friday, and a Registered Nurse on Tues and Thur they can both be associated to the same virtual permit, as they are NOT using parking privileges at the same time. This coordination is the responsibility of the department who purchases the permits and the end users, NOT University Parking. If two vehicles attempt to use the same virtual parking permit at the same time it will result in a citation.

Contractor(s) / Vendor(s) / Third-Party Employees

Any person who has a vehicle on campus in excess of 5 times per semester, which is inclusive of most University full time faculty, staff, and students, has likely purchased a permit. If you will be on campus for more than 5 times, we respectfully request that you pay for parking. You may purchase a parking permit at the Bursar’s office for yourself or make a request of the department that you’re benefiting that they purchase a parking permit on your behalf. If you are a contractor, the department may already have a contractor permit purchased, they just need to assign you license plate to it. You may also use the ParkMobile App to secure parking, but will be restricted to parking within the Studio Arts lot.
