All campus parking is regulated throughout the year
Regulation means that a vehicle must be authorized to park on campus legally
Authorization is by valid permit, paid meter, or compliance with posted time limit, where applicable
This means that, where ever a vehicle is parked, it must either display a valid permit, purchase time at a meter, or honor a posted time limit
Any area that is not specifically identified as a parking space/lot/area, is never considered a legal parking space.
Reserved parking spaces are typically identified by special signage and are restricted to authorized vehicles only. Examples of reserved parking spaces are A-zone spaces, Disabled spaces, Physical Plant spaces and Service areas.
A Commuter permit is valid for the entire school year, including the summer session. The Commuter permit cost is added to student billing when purchased before the end of the first week of classes during the fall and spring semesters. After that time payment is available via cash, check or credit card.
Commuter permits may be purchased from Parking Services beginning July 1 via our online registration form. Your permit will be mailed to your permanent home address.
A valid permit is required throughout the year. There is no grace period at the beginning of the semester. Students are strongly encouraged to arrange for purchase of a permit prior to arriving on campus.
If you have not purchased your permit before the beginning of the semester, stop by Parking Services as soon as possible after arriving at school. You must park in either a metered space or on a City street until you have a permit.
A commuter permit is valid in parking lots near academic buildings. Although a permit is valid in almost all center campus parking lots, it is not valid in every space in these lots. Consult the information on Valid Parking Spaces carefully before parking.
A valid parking space is within the striped stall markings in a paved lot or head in against a bumper block in a gravel lot. Any area that isn't striped or that doesn't have a bumper block in front of it is not a legal parking space.
Campus, "C" permits are only valid in standard parking spaces. Standard spaces are not signed. Any space that is signed is reserved for another permit and a "C" permit is not valid there.
Commuter parking spaces are regulated from 7 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday.
Overnight, 2 AM - 7 AM, parking is prohibited in commuter lots.
Commuter lots do not require display of a permit in a standard space during the evening hours or on weekend days.
Commuter lots are regulated throughout the year. Parking regulation is not suspended during non-class periods.
Students with a physical disability are eligible to purchase a disabled parking permit.
Students with a disability, either permanent or temporary, should contact Parking Services to obtain accessible parking.
A UW-Stout disabled permit is required to park in a university lot. The state disabled permit is not sufficient.
UW-Stout disabled permits are valid in both signed, disabled spaces and any standard commuter space.
Regular commuter lots do not permit overnight parking. Commuter permit holders who need to park overnight may check with Parking Services for alternatives.
Although a UW-Stout commuter permit offers, by far, the best parking options, there are other options available.
Metered parking, in both university lots and on Menomonie City streets. Meter term and rate varies from lot to lot and from university meter to City meter so take care to read the information printed on the meter.
Caution: It is illegal to park at a meter that will not accept payment. If you park at a meter and it will not register time, you must move to another meter that will register time.
City Street Parking is an a option on streets adjacent to campus. Take care to read the posted parking regulation signs and adhere to local ordinances with respect to legal distance from fire hydrants, driveways, and intersections.
Parking is regulated during the summer and requires display of a permit. Summer permits are available at the Parking Services office after the first week in May. Application process ...
