Parking and Transportation

Parking at Court 17

Housing residents may purchase a parking pass for the Court 17 garage. This can be billed monthly ($70/month) or quarterly ($210/quarter). Students indicate their request for parking on the Payment Plan Form, which is submitted at the same time as their signed Housing Agreement. The parking fees will be added to the student account and is payable, just like rent and tuition, through MyUW.

Parking permits are distributed at the Lorig Office desk on the first floor of Court 17.
