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.
- To request or cancel a parking pass in the middle of the year, please indicate your request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will not be processed until the beginning of the next month.
