Getting to and From Campus

For visitors, students and faculty/staff alike, parking can cause confusion on a college campus. At UWEC, we want everyone to be informed about what our parking system looks like and never be left wondering, can I park here?

Updates for Summer 2024


Enforcement hours as follow:   

  • May 16 - Sept 3: UWEC parking permits are not required in upper campus parking lots with ‘R’ designated parking stalls, the Bollinger lot with ‘B’ designated parking stalls, and the Activity lot with ‘A’ designated parking stalls. 
  • All other parking regulations, including lower campus Visitor Lot A and Visitor Lot B will be enforced over Summer 2024.
