UW-Superior Parking Services is responsible for coordinating the sale and distribution of parking permits, enforcing parking regulations, maintaining parking lots and assigning parking areas for special events. The office also is in charge of issuing university keys and approving staff and students who may be required to drive for university purposes.

Ample parking is available for students, staff and visitors in the 15 parking lots across campus. Motor vehicle operators are presumed to be familiar with all parking regulations and may only park where they are legally entitled. Signs at lot entrances identify what type of parking is allowed in the lot. Parking regulations are enforced and tickets will be issued to vehicles which are not properly parked.  Please review the map of parking lots so you are familiar with where you can park. 

Parking Services is an auxiliary unit, which is funded primarily by parking permit fees and receives no tax or tuition dollars.
