Several resturants and food vendors around the hotels and in the UW Wyoming Union.

Due to limited parking on campus, 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 about every 5 minutes. It will drop you right behind the union.

There are also two paid options for parking near the Library, metered spots and day-lot which allows you to purchase parking for a full day. Each is $1/hour.

See the map below for the locations of the free & paid parking

Day permits are available from the Transit & Parking Services department at 462 N 10th and the Wyoming Union Information Desk located in the Wyoming Union. The fee for a Day Permit is $5 per day and allows the permit holder to park in an "A", "C" or "R" space. Day permits may be purchased for multiple days. These permits can be purchased by anyone, including UW departments with an IDR.
