Campus parking for all graduation events, including department events, will require a parking permit. We recommend parking in Central Plaza Garage, as it is the closest option for on-campus parking. To park off-campus, please plan to arrive early as parking can be difficult to find around the UW Campus.

Graduates will be able to pre-purchase parking permits ($17.75) from the UW Commencement page (from May 3 – May 21, 2023). If you wish to guarantee parking in a particular lot, it is recommended that you pre-purchase a permit, since some lots may sell out. Day-of-event parking permits will cost $18.75 and will require that you use Pay by Phone or the pay machines in the lots.
