  • UW PARKING PERMIT: If you have a UW parking permit, it can be used in the UW Tower garage (W45). Entrance is on 12th Ave NE in the middle of the block between NE45th and NE43rd Streets. There is no parking attendant but the garage is patrolled. Follow signs to the west garage. (The east garage is pay-by-space parking only.) After parking, take the passage way on 2W to the 3rd floor of the East Garage (3E). An in-door bridge over 12th Ave NE will take you to the UW Tower.
  • NEARBY LOT: A relatively inexpensive lot is on 12th Ave NE just north of NE 45th Street on the west side of the street.
  • STREET PARKING: Metered street parking is available and varies 2 to 4 hours around the UW Tower. Be sure to watch for 4-6 p.m. NO PARKING signs.
  • UW TOWER GARAGE: Pay-by-space parking. The machine can be confusing. When you key in your parking space number, you will be given three choices: 15 Minute Increments, All Day or Pre-Arranged Parking. Select “15 Minute Increments.” When it shows 15 minutes, you must enter your payment (VISA, MasterCard accepted) before you can add more time.
  • Parking is the participant's responsibility. Please be aware of parking time and rules.
