Campus Information

Campus Shuttle

Free shuttles to the Union are new to UW this year. Because of limited parking on campus near the Union, consider parking at 30th Street and Willet Drive (east of campus) and taking the Union Express to campus ($1 roundtrip). At the parking lot, look for the two shelters on the east and west ends of the lot. The bus labeled Union Express stops at these shelters often. It will take you directly to the east (back) entrance of the Union. You might also consider the parking lot at 15th Street and Spring Creek Drive called the South Express (the lot is located south of campus at the site of the former Albertson’s store). No permit is needed for these lots. The buses run from 7am to 6pm. A map of stops is available at


Campus Parking

If you are not a UW student or a staff/faculty member, you will need a parking permit to park on campus. Shuttles to satellite lots are available (there is a modest cost). The Express bus runs from the free parking located at Willett Drive and Crane Street, Visit UW’s Transportation and Parking website for more information. See particularly the "Parking map"  and "day use and short term parking".
