NEW Upper Campus Parking Option

A new parking lot near upper campus is now open. The new “C” lot is located in the eastern portion of the Chippewa Valley Technical College’s large parking lot on the south side of the intersection of Clairemont Avenue and University Drive. See map. Permits are required from 6 a.m-4 p.m. weekdays and there is no overnight parking. Individuals eligible to purchase a “C” permit include campus visitors, faculty, staff, commuter students and residents of Haymarket Landing. Students who live in the upper-campus residence halls, at The Priory or in Aspenson Mogensen Hall are not eligible to purchase this permit. Individuals with an “S,” “F” or “G” permit must purchase a “C” permit to park in this lot. See more details, including cost.
