By purchasing a UW-Stout parking permit you are agreeing to the Parking Permit Use Agreement.

For information on types of permits available click here >>.

You will be asked to register any vehicle (make, model, state, license plate) you bring to campus. Have that information available prior to beginning your registration.

How to purchase a permit online

  1. Log-on to the Parking Portal using your standard UW-Stout user name and password (the one you use for email, etc)

  2. For students, payment options are either credit card or "Bill Student Account".
    Bill Student Account option will add the permit cost to a student's university billing. Note: if you choose this option after the full tuition payment date has passed, the fee will be due immediately.

  3. For faculty/staff, payment options are either credit card or "Payroll Deduction".
    The Payroll Deduction option (available through September) will add the permit cost as a deduction to an employee's wages. For more information click on "Payroll Deduction" under the Quick Links.

After completing the permit purchase you will receive a confirmation/receipt by email. If you do not receive a confirmation, email Parking Services.

Disabled Parking Permit Purchase

  • Individuals who are currently authorized with Parking Services as disabled-eligible may purchase a disabled parking permit.
  • If you are not registered as disabled-eligible, but need accessible parking (long term or short term), you need to obtain a Disability Parking Authorization or you can email Parking for assistance before registering.
  • It is important that we align your permit with your parking time frame (24 hours for housing or day parking for commuters). As you complete your permit registration, ensure you're being offered the correct permit. If not, please suspend registration and email Parking.

Staff Reserved Parking Permit Purchase

  • Reserved permits are only available to those who have been pre-authorized. If you are not currently a reserved permit holder but interested, please email Parking Services to inquire about availability before registering. 
  • Authorized individuals are eligible to register for a reserved area in a specific lot.
  • A reserved parking permit is valid in the reserved section of a single lot.  A reserved permit is not valid in the reserved parking area of other parking lots.
  • Reserved permits also authorize parking in any campus commuter space (C) outside of your home reserved lot.
  • If you no longer wish to renew your reserved permit please do not proceed with this registration and email Parking Services for assistance.

Assignment of Reserved Parking >>

Reserved parking will be assigned based on the following guidelines:

  • "First come, first served" when there are spaces available.
  • When a reserved section is full, assignment of openings are made from an applicant waiting list in order of seniority date on the applicant list.
  • New applicants are added to the bottom of the waiting list.
  • If a space is offered and declined the person is removed from the waiting list.
  • If an A-permit holder's workplace changes they may be added to the top of a waiting list nearer their new workplace.

Motorcycle/Moped Parking Permit Purchase

  • When you register for both a vehicle and motorcycle/moped permit you must do so in two separate transactions.
  • A discounted permit ($5/year) is available to staff who also purchase a vehicle permit. Therefore, if you're purchasing both permits make sure you register for the vehicle permit first.

Permit Display

  • Display your permit hanging face-out from the vehicle's rear view mirror. 
  • If you forget your permit, stop by Parking Services before parking to pick up a temporary replacement.

Security of Permit

  • The permit owner is responsible for security of his/her parking permit. Always lock your vehicle for your personal safety as well as the security of your permit and other valuables.
  • A fee is assessed for replacement of a permit.

Permit Replacement

If a permit has been lost/stolen:

  • Contact Parking Services immediately to file the lost/stolen property report and request a temporary replacement. Permit holders are responsible for displaying a valid permit at all times while parked on the UW-Stout campus. You cannot park on campus until you've obtained and displayed a replacement permit.
  • Prior to the expiration of your temporary permit, return to Parking Services to request a permanent replacement.
  • A replacement fee will apply to all replacement permits unless the police investigation verifies forced entry to your vehicle. Evidence of forced entry is considered a mitigating factor in determining replacement cost.
