Getting to

We’re excited to welcome you to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh! Please use this page as a resource for planning your trip to UWO. If you have any questions or need directions as you are driving, please contact our office at or call (920) 424-3269.


Titan Takeoff attendees are permitted to park in Lot #34, which is located behind Polk Library on Elmwood Ave (use 800 Elmwood Ave. for your GPS). No parking permit will be needed if you park in Lot #34. Parking spaces are limited so we ask that students and their guests carpool to be sure there is enough space for all of our guests.

You may not park in reserved or metered spaces. Overnight parking is prohibited.

Construction Notes

To make the UW Oshkosh campus both beautiful and functional, you will see some construction upon arrival on your Titan Takeoff Day. Please follow the parking instructions noted above to be sure you can get parked with ease. Please note that some highways, the City of Oshkosh and the UW Oshkosh campus may be experiencing construction. We suggest planning your travel to allow extra time in the event of delays. Please visit the Department of Transportation US 41 Project website for additional questions about road construction that may be specific to your route to campus.
