The mission of Parking and Transportation Services is to manage and enforce a limited number of parking spaces which are available to students, faculty, staff and visitors, plus work cooperatively with the city of Eau Claire to provide timely transit transportation to all members of the university community.
Parking at UW-Eau Claire
Parking policies and regulations at UW-Eau Claire are aimed at easing the parking crunch on campus and in the neighborhoods adjacent to the campus. These policies and regulations are part of an overall parking plan recommended by the Physical Plant Planning Committee, the University Senate and the Student Senate, and approved by the chancellor. The plan incorporates a multifaceted approach to managing a limited number of parking spaces available to students, faculty, staff and visitors. It includes a differentiated pricing system for parking permits, significant penalties for violations and a free transit service for the university community. We are committed to identifying improvements which focus on sustainability and reducing the University's carbon footprint.
