Directions and Parking

All parking is controlled by UW Commuter Services.

If you are planning on parking on Campus for an event at The University of Washington Husky Union Building (HUB), you must stop at a gatehouse and buy a parking permit unless you have a UW Quarterly or Annual Permit. If you have a UW Permit, you must go to the gatehouse and obtain an out of area pass for the HUB parking lot. You should stop at a gatehouse if you are unsure whether you can park at the HUB for any reason. You should also request disability parking when you stop at a gatehouse if that is needed.
