  • Parking lots are identified with a sign at each entrance including the lot name and permit type required.
  • Enforcement varies depending on the location. Please click here to see enforcement hours.
  • Displaying the permit authorizes parking only in the specific location listed on the permit.
  • A housing contract is required in order to purchase a permit for a student residential lot. Housing assignments and contracts will be verified beginning July 31st. If you do not have a valid housing assignment and/or contract at that time, your permit will be canceled and a refund would be processed less a $25 administrative fee.
  • The permit must be returned to University Parking if you move off campus before the academic year is completed. A prorated refund will be processed only upon receipt of the returned permit.
  • Permits are non-refundable after February 10th.
  • Transferring a permit from one student to another is not allowed. Violations may result in revocation of parking privileges, void any refund value, and citations up to but not limited to and including UWS 18.08 citation.
  • Student permits are valid thru the expiration date stated on the permit (August 31st).

The commuter permit must be returned to University Parking if you withdraw from school. A prorated refund will then be issued. Permits are non-refundable after April 30th.

Transferring a permit from one student to another is not allowed and will result in revocation of parking privileges, Improperly Obtained Permit citation and possible UWS 18.08 citation. If a permit is revoked, there will be no refund of the permit value.

The registered permit holder is responsible for any parking violations issued to the vehicle bearing the permit.

Public Parking:

Non permit holders can utilize public parking. Click here for more information.

 

City Streets:

Parking is available on the city streets. City streets are the jurisdiction of the city of River Falls. City rules and regulations can be obtained from their website:  http://www.rfcity.org/police_home.asplink
