Disabled Parking

Use of accessible parking spaces is restricted to vehicles with DIS (disabled) plates, DIS VET plates, or an ID card issued by the Wisconsin (or other state) Department of Transportation.   A paid UW-W permit is also required on vehicles parking on campus.

Wisconsin statutes that exempt vehicles from paying meter fees apply to municipalities and are not applicable on the UW-Whitewater campus.

On the UW-Whitewater campus, vehicles with DIS plates or an ID card along with a valid UW-Whitewater parking permit may be parked in disabled parking spaces, any non-restricted space, or up to 4 hours at any pay by space (Passport) parking stall with no fee required.

Students living in a University resident hall will be able to purchase an accessible resident (yellow) parking permit online and will be required to upload the DMV documentation for the accessible license plate or hanging placard.    Contact our office with any questions. 

Temporary disabled parking permits may be issued to persons with a physician's statement for short-term needs, not to exceed 30 days.  The cost of a temporary disabled parking permit is $20 per week, unless another valid UW-Whitewater permit is currently held, in which case there is no additional cost.

The Parking Services office is located in the Visitor Center building at 826 W. Starin Road.   Business office hours are Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.    Contact us at (262) 472-1011 or e-mail us at
