In this Section

Parking on the UW-Stout campus is regulated throughout the entire calendar year, and any parking must comply with the guidelines established in the documents on this website.  All legitimate parking must be authorized by Parking Services by permit, meter, posted time limit, or phone authorization.

Parking information must be obtained from Parking Services.  Incorrect information provided by another source is not considered a valid defense of a parking violation.

Please view parking updates on a regular basis to avoid receiving a parking citation while parking on the UW-Stout campus. All updates and news will be featured below.


Parking Permit Refunds

A permit is still required if you are using campus parking lots.

If you are leaving early due to the COVID-19 response, and will no longer need on campus parking, you may be eligible for a partial refund as part of our regular refund schedule for residential and commuter parkers.  If your departure is only temporary, we suggest keeping your permit to avoid having to purchase a new one upon your return.

Please refrain from coming to the Police & Parking Office to do a return. Instead, mail your permit back to us or fill out this easy online form.

New Electronic Pay Stations

Pay stations became active August 1, 2019!  These pay stations replaced approximately 90 coin-operated meters that were located in lot 14 and lot 18.  With that, lots 14 and 18 will be configured differently.  This DOES affect regular permit holders, too!  Visitor parking lots 27 and 29 also have pay stations installed.  The pay stations feature cash and card payment options with an extend-by-phone feature.  Continue to check our website, specifically the short-term parking options for all information.

There are a limited number of permits available and you must come into the Parking Office to purchase one.  You can contact the Parking Office at 715-232-1792 or e-mail  Parking is enforced year round so either valid permit, payment of pay station or payment of short-term meter.
