Metered Parking Options

There are public meters in most parking lots on campus. Some of these meters have a 25-minute limit. To get 5-minutes FREE, turn the handle (or push the button) when the meter shows zero time and then insert additional coins if needed. On the UW campus, you may not "re-plug" a meter. You are limited when parking at a meter to the length of the time limit of the meter.

See the Rates Policy for cost of meters. See the Lot Stall information page for longer term meter locations. Vehicles may not park at an inoperable meter. Customers should move to the next metered stall and report the inoperable meter to UW Transportation Services at 263-6666, press option #7. Have the broken meter number, lot number, and the problem with the meter. For additional information, please see our Citation Policy.
