Hospital Employees

Hospital employees who are not UW faculty, staff, or students use their NetIDs to apply for parking only.

  • If your NetID password needs to be reset and you have forgotten your campus ID number for verification, please contact the hospital parking coordinators at 263-7943. Please inform them that you need your UW ID number. You may then call the Help Desk to have your password reset.

  • Note: Hospital staff can visit the HSLC DoIT Service Desk site (Located in the HSLC Bookstore) or any DoIT Service Desk for password changes. This is a great alternative for when you do not have your Campus ID. We can verify your identity using a driver's license or other official photo ID.


Most alumni request their Campus ID in order to access transcript data. Alumni can use My Info to access much of their former student data. If you need access to My Info and don't remember your Campus ID or PIN, you can go to My Info and click the link labeled 'Forgot Campus ID or Pin?'. You will then be able to log into My Info after providing alternate information. This method will not provide you with your Campus ID number.
