Day Use & Short-Term Parking


Four options are available for short term and day use parking:


1. Metered Parking:

Metered parking is available at various locations on campus to provide short-term parking. Meters are available at the following locations: Residence Halls, Hoyt Hall, Knight Hall, Coe Library, Wyoming Union, Fine Arts, Corbett Gym, Arena-Auditorium, Beta House, 12th & Lewis, and Animal Science. The fee for metered parking is $1.75/hour. Most meters are limited to 2 hour parking (check the individual meter to be sure).


2. Pay-by-the-Hour Spaces:

Parking spaces are currently available at the Day Lot located at the corner of 15th and Willett Street (set to close December 2022). Spaces will also be available in the Ivinson Parking Garage at 11th and Ivinson, opening January 2023. There are no time limits on these spaces, and time may be extended as needed. 

You can either use the pay kiosk, or download the Parkmobile app to pay for parking at these locations. 

3. Shuttle Service:

The Express Shuttle is the quickest and most convenient way to get to campus. With free parking located at 30th Street and Willett Drive and 15th and Spring Creek, this shuttle provides continuous service to the Wyoming Union from the shuttle lot every 10 minutes. View all UWYO Roundup Services.


4. Day Permits
:

Day permits are available in a couple of different forms; a printable online permit or a hard copy scratch off permit.

The fee for a day permit is $7.00 per day and allows the permit holder to park in Gold, Brown, Orange, Red, Purple or Green zone parking spaces.

Please note that day permits do not allow for parking in reserved spaces or metered spaces. Parking in an ADA symbol accessible parking space is allowed with a day permit only when the appropriate state/city disability placard or license plates are displayed.

There are two primary types of day permits; online day permits and scratch off day permits. The Frequently Asked Questions below may help you determine what option is best for you. Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions.
