Effective Aug. 1, 2018
The policies and regulations included throughout this website have been approved by the Chancellor and reviewed by the Parking Advisory Committee, which is comprised of faculty, staff and student representatives from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus.
Authority to establish regulations governing motor vehicle use on campus for visitors, employees and students is derived from Wisconsin Statutes. These rules are enacted pursuant to the authority granted the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System under Section 36.11 (8)(a) and (b) and (8e) of state statutes and, in turn, granted to the Chancellor by the Board of Regents.
All Wisconsin motor vehicle laws are applicable to the same extent as though this campus and its streets are public highways.
Minor modifications in lot assignments and parking regulations to accommodate unforeseen circumstances or special events may be made during the year. Every effort will be made to provide ample notice of any such notification to the University community.
Snow plowing in lots may temporarily occupy some parking spaces.
Who needs a University Parking Permit?
Every person who parks a motor vehicle on University property, including a motorcycle or moped, must have a valid University parking permit or pay at a parking meter or pay station. Parking permits are not a substitute for paying meter fees OR the pay station fees in Lot 15 and on High Avenue and Osceola street.
- Parking regulations are enforced year-round, even when classes are not in session.
- If your vehicle is unattended, it is parked.
- Using your vehicle’s hazard lights does not excuse illegal parking.
Enforcement is 24 hours a day from 6 a.m. on Monday through 4 p.m. on Friday. Other than weekend times from 4 p.m. on Friday through 6 a.m. on Monday when parking is free in any legal, non-reserved space, all other permit and meter regulations are enforced as follows:
Monday-Thursday: 6 a.m. – midnight*
Friday: 6 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
*All employee/commuter/visitor lots are closed midnight – 6 a.m. Vehicles parked during these times are subject to closed lot tickets.
Parking is not permitted in non-resident lots midnight-6 a.m. or on city streets 2-5 a.m.
Any permit that is not properly displayed may result in a ticket.
Violations for parking in employee/commuter/visitor lots after midnight are always strictly enforced.
The rear of the vehicle must be parked toward the drive lane (do not back in or pull through to the other side).
During a snow emergency, vehicles parked in any commuter/employee/visitor lot after midnight may be ticketed and towed to allow snow removal.
Repeat offenders are subject to doubling of fine values.
UW Oshkosh and its employees and agents assume no liability for loss from theft or damage to cars parked on University property. Purchasers of parking permits agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the University, its officers, employees and agents from any and all liability, including but not limited to claims, demands, losses, costs, damages and expenses of every kind and description (including death) or damages to persons or property arising out of, or in connection with, or occurring during use of the facility by the permit holder.
